Quote from: deckit on July 08, 2012, 19:47:44 pmIf the A3 PRO has worked well in a lighter model, I can't see either why it shouldn't work in a JW.Just so long as it has enough definition (steps) on the elevator function.If it does, I'll be getting one for my JW awaiting build (well, two actually....)BTW, I wonder how many in UK would qualify for an old codgers DS club?I'm 2 years behind you, so a dead-ringer. Then there's Ron Broughton.Any other prepared to admit to this title?

Quote from: deckit on November 19, 2013, 16:59:23 pmGiven gain adjustments available only at the pots, it'll be useful over a limited range of plane speeds on any given setting.So not suited to a fast DSer unless it's set up with low gain(s) for top-end performance, in which case at lower speeds its effect will be limited or negligible.
Quote from: Bad Raven on November 19, 2013, 19:01:09 pmSorry, don't understand this. On my gyros (lots of various types inc, Eagle A3/A3Pro, 401, 501, 611, 3X1000, 3X2000, IceMan) I set the gyro gain to be the maximum available that does not give electronic oscillation, and having done that the only factor affecting their performance at various speeds is the fineness in resolution and accuracy of the mechanics of servos/horns/etc, i.e. gain adjustment has not needed to be varied with airspeed. Not tried in DS but have on both frontside gliders and a hotliner. What have I missed please?
Quote from: Geoff N on November 19, 2013, 19:19:09 pmHi I have one of these devices and as it comes out of the box its fairly useless with a lot of servo jitter especially if you use the AUX CONTROL to turn stabilization on and off BUT if you flash it with Open flight stabilizer what a transformation.http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1794672&highlight=rx3Variable heading hold and rate modes with controllable on /off and sensitivity from the TX .No jitter. It does Single aileronDeltaVtailDual Aileronand CPPMSee huge thread hereI have only used it in a Wild thing so far but Heading hold in 30MPH was all rather boring it just flew on rails. I was amazed at how little stick input was required.Its a bit of a fiddle to flash the gyro .it needs special leads but i could do it for return postage.
QuoteI've used Futaba GYA351(2-axis) & GYA352 (3-axis), both of which have Rate/AVCS modes & gain/s controllable from the TX.So gain can be optimized in all conditions/plane speeds.
Quote from: cambrad on November 19, 2013, 21:15:20 pmThanks for that Geoff, i will start reading that thread. Another im following on rc groups is the Eagle Tree giro thread and there are about 470 pages at the moment !Dont understand what you mean by "flash it" ? Update the software???
Quote from: hobster on November 19, 2013, 22:07:07 pmHi Geoff, I bought one of the orange V2 gyros about six months ago. I tried it out with digital servos and they just jittered like crazy. I never tried the aux control. I couldn't understand why the gyro had so many positive reviews. But I tried it again a few weeks ago with some old analog servos and it seemed to work ok, without the jitters. So perhaps it is servo dependent? Anyway, am thinking of using it in a Stab but waiting to see how well it works with the Stab servos (which are in the post). If they jitter, can I take you up on your kind offer of a reflash?
Quote from: cambrad on November 22, 2013, 16:57:12 pm"Note: All RX3S V2 stabilizers now ship with an upgraded firmware version (V2.1) which provides improved stability and better support for high-sensitivity digital servos".Steve, maybe you have the V1 version? And hence the jittery digi servos?
