HobbyKing Orange RX 3-Axis Flight Stabilizer Gyro System - Part 1 Of 3 - Good For FPV Or Jets




What do you think about this video?

Hugo Stiglitz: I use the JCX M6 on my planes and no hunting etc etc .. Good Board £20 . 00 :-))>~

mountaindewdude76: I spend a good deal of time going over your videos on this stabilizer and now I have two of them. They are simple and they work. If you get time, check out my channel for my most recent video of my scratch built Blue Cub taking off, flying, and landing. That plane is such a treat to fly!!! It flies very well without the stabilizer but the stabilizer does help smooth things out. I like it!

BAMFSpYdy: Turning down your gains will stop the jittering of the control servos. Thats what the 3 adjustable pots are for.

jccadena: New to hobby and going to install flight simulator to trainer. I'm confused in the action of the stabilizer. If the plane rolls right, should the aileron go down?

dmerc00: It looks like this version is "Rate Mode" only.

Gary Potter: Thanks for the video. You have one of the build you did for the plane you used to test the OrangeRx stablizer? Or maybe a link?

DAVID CARTER: Thanks very much. Perhaps I failed to mention I am using the combined receiver and gyro. I had exactly the same problem when using the V2 gyro with a separate receiver. All "V" and Delta tails are off and no flaps. Just to confirm with a 2 servo wing setup and when I put the right aileron into the aileron connector of the receiver/gyro and the left into the AUX you cannot turn the gyro OFF from your transmitter. Works OK, like in your video with a "Y" connector and one servo setup.

dmerc00: Yes this is a feature that is a must-to-have on the stabilizer. Not sure if this is an oversight by the manufacturer, hard to implement or just cost prohibitive. The prophets missed the church on this one! I have got to admit that I didn't even notice the problem.

DAVID CARTER: Pleasure talking with you, keep up the excellent videos. David

rocky walker: Sry. That's not what I mean. The kk2 has a very poor self stabilizing system. ESP on quads. What I wonder is if u can use this with a kk2 for such as a quad to fix the lack of , the kk2 has for self-balancing

GrumpyMadman: Looks like a piece of cheap junk to me, nothing but continual servo chatter? If you set the plane down do the servo still continually chatter?

dmerc00: That would not be good. In studying the Reverse/Normal switches I have found an incorrect setting can cause a feedback loop which will force the servo to one side. This can cause the plane to go into a permanent loop or death spiral. Not saying that is what is happening in your case but it's something to watch out for.

mboiko: Thanks for a great review of the OrangeRX Stabilizer. I'm currently in the process of posting links to your review in RCGroups giving you credit as dmerc00. Thanks again... -mike-

3FLYTE: Gain is almost like what's on my as3x beast umx. it does not bother me in the least when it hunts like that.

cleirig: The three video's make a clear and comprehensive "how to" on the three axis stabilizer.

theleabres: I just got mine and your video helped a lot. Thanks. Subscribed!

dmerc00: Ah! So you have Version 3 with built-in receiver not the V1 show in this video. Thanks for clarifying that. You are right that the dual aileron wing type is of no use with V3. Not needed for V1 or V2 either. But I think they all can use the left and right aileron outputs for the two servos instead of the Y if the servos are not mechanically opposed/reversed. You might have to flip one servo around to make it work. But still the dual aileron wing type should not be set in the radio.

VTOLKits: They have V2 now with switch for delta mix and switch for v-tail mix, very good and cheap.

dmerc00: Thanks T, Yes this is a new product and I am just working through trying to set it up. No manual was provided from HK so it is a challenge but fun. I took the plane for some test flights today and should post the video of that as Part 3 soon.

JohnVelojet: Very helpful! Thanks muchly for making and posting!

rocky walker: Do u think this can be used in the KK2 board to fix its lack of self Leveling

RonALampman: dmerc00, The "hunting" jitters of the servos is due to the gain pots being set too high. If you were to try to fly like that, you would get bad oscillations that get worse at higher speeds. I adjust my gyros down low and sit the aircraft down so it will remain still. Then I crank up one of the gyro pots at a time until I get jitters, and back off just enough for it to stop.

dmerc00: Three! We are keeping HK in business :) I still need to put one on my Bixler glider and test.

womackke: cool plane nice style

dmerc00: I imagine this gyro system will get a lot of use. Thanks for posting!

soroush zed: Hello ,if i have storm osd , do i still need this ?

dmerc00: Thanks for telling me about this. No one else notice. Mmmm, sounds like the dual aileron wing type that you are referring to. Your right I didn't think of that conflict. The AUX1 would not be available for the gyro on/off switch that way, but you probably could use the gear channel for the gyro switch instead (provided you don't have retracts). Otherwise, as you said, use the Y-cable for the ailerons.

dmerc00: A gimbal on what? RC radios have them for the sticks but that is all I know.

Watt Waster: Interesting review. I believe this is a new product, so I would expect some problems with the units. I really like these reviews since it saves me a lot of time trying to figure out how to share information about how something worked, or didn't. Great show and tell.

dmerc00: I have ordered the V2 to test but don't have it yet. Probably will take 3 weeks coming from China.

GrumpyMadman: Ok, I guess the gain was probably set a little high a the start. Glad to hear it is alright as I imagine the price is right. It is just so hit and miss with some of Hobby Kings stuff.

DAVID CARTER: Thanks for your reply. I do not have retracts and use the Gear switch to control the gyro off and on. But if you use a standard 2 servo wing set up the gear switch does not turn the gyro off or on. The only way I have found to get the switch to work is again to have a single servo set up for the ailerons and ` "Y" connector. This is not good as most planes these days have two indipendant servos allowing you to control each aileron sub trim separately.

dmerc00: Your Welcome. Glad I can help in the understanding of the product. I am just about done with Part 3 and it should be uploaded to YT soon. Part 3 is mostly just flight testing at the airfield.

DAVID CARTER: Hi, an outstanding video but you fail to mention that the on/off switch only works if you have a wing setup using one servo. I also have a DX8 and it took many hours to find out that if you have a wing set on your transmitter using 2 servos you cannot switch the stabiliser OF and ON. Your video indicates you have a choice of using one to two servos, one with a "Y" lead. Am I missing something here?

dmerc00: Thank you very much!

pointnozzleaway: i just put one on my 800mm T6 Texan. used aileron only. super simple and worked awesome !

dmerc00: Sounds great. I will have a look at the thread. I imagine there is some good information there.

Will Gottwald: So this would not work to stableize a gimbal? If not what would work?

dmerc00: I am not sure how that could be done electronically without problems.

Jonnysea1986: This is really interesting.

3FLYTE: well it finally came back in stock, so i ordered three :) i will experiment with it on my t28 and some others.

David Holt: Hey Rocky. I think this would be more likely to work with the basic KK board. I will try it and let you know.

dmerc00: Yes you can use it without the remote on/off and without any input from the radio. Keep in mind it does NOT have GPS, heading hold, return to home, or auto pilot so if you lose control from the radio the plane will eventually crash.

dmerc00: Later in the video you will see that with adjustment the chatter will stop when the plane is set down. My main complaint with this unit is that it can not be switched on/off remotely with the radio otherwise it's ok.

DAVID CARTER: Yes you are right but the problem still arises you cannot use separate sub trim or aileron throw by using a single servo wing set up. I think this is either design fault on the Orange or a design fault in the DX8. Most wings have 2 servos and you need to adjust each one individually if you are using the stabiliser, just the same as if you are not using the stabiliser. Nice to hear your comments, very much appreciated.

dmerc00: Thanks, I also made two videos on version 2 of this stab which has some extra features like being able to be turned off remotely.

dmerc00: Yes, I have heard that the KK2 has self leveling and if programmed properly can be used for airplanes. RCgroups had information about it.

dmerc00: Yes does the same hunting on my AS3X Hyper Taxi. When I set it down the hunting stops.

dardi jones: i dont like stabilisers. I think people should leard how to fly the plane and keep it stable instead

MichaelT1960: I too have one of the OrangeRx stabilizers and mine locks up on the stick movements after it is on for a while (20 - 30 seconds or so). I am sending mine back for a replacement because I know it will lead to a crash:( I wish this unit was a heading hold unit like the AS3X's are!
