AimlessMoto: I think you could turn the gyro on/off. If you don't run any power to any of your AEL/RUD/ELEV connections, and you run JUST +/- to the BAT connection to a switched channel on the receiver, you could potentially power on/off the receiver at will.
Baro Shah: Thanks so much for showing us how to do setup i was able to set my airplane and gyro on off was great help . Thanks again
jacky Parker:+dmerc00 whats the hyper taxi go like with a rocket motor attached for take off ? lol
Farmer Farmerer: You speak really clearly.Thanks so much for excellent helpful lesson.
DAVID CARTER: Pleasure talking with you, keep up the excellent videos.
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: 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: 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.
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.
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: 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.
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?
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.
dardi jones: i dont like stabilisers. I think people should leard how to fly the plane and keep it stable instead
dmerc00: I am not sure how that could be done electronically without problems.
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
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.
rocky walker: Do u think this can be used in the KK2 board to fix its lack of self Leveling
dmerc00: The plane in the video uses a Y cable on the ailerons as well.
As explained in the video the Y is connected to the right aileron channel.
You could use the left instead of the right if you need to reverse the action.
