The all new RX3S Flight Stabilizer adds on the original V2 design with integrated OrangeRX Spektrum/JR DSM2 compatible 6CH 2.4Ghz receiver. This eliminates the need for using a separate receiver in your model, not only making installation more tidy and convenient, but allowing you to simply bind and fly with flight stabilization! The RX3S DSM2 stabilizer provides support for V-tail & Delta models, and also offers a remote ON/OFF feature that can be controlled via your transmitter's AUX channel.
Utilizing a single high precision 3-axis MEMS gyro, the RX3S DSM2 stabilizer is capable of stabilizing flight on just about any fixed wing aircraft! It provides added stability by automatically correcting the aileron, elevator and rudder channels in flight. This compensates for unwanted changes in the airplane's attitude due to wind and other factors. In short, it makes your airplane much more stable in flight!
The RX3S DSM2 stabilizer is great for those who tend to fly in windy conditions, as it will compensate for wind gusts that would normally push your model around. It's also an ideal add-on to your favorite FPV model to keep it on the straight and level while flying.
This unit is very simple to install and use. The adjustable gain settings are pre-set to 50% offering mild stabilization. You can easily adjust the gain for each channel as desired to increase or decrease the compensation for the respective channel (AIL, ELE, RUD).
Because we design, test and manufacture these units completely in-house (from 3D/2D drawing to materials sourcing, final assembly etc.) we can completely control production and ensure product consistency from design right through to shipping the product to you. Also, the removal of middle-men has meant we can drive better value to the market and retail these units at factory(our) prices!
Features: • OrangeRX Spektrum/JR DSM2 compatible 6CH 2.4Ghz integrated receiver, simply bind and fly! • Capable of stabilizing flight on just about any fixed wing aircraft (including V-tail/Delta models) • Remote ON/OFF feature that can be controlled via your transmitter's AUX channel • Supports 3D flight without undermining stability • Independent gyro gain adjustment for aileron, elevator and rudder • Easy-to-access gyro reversing switches on front of unit • Compact and light weight design
Range depends more on your tx than on your rx. A satellite receiver gives you redundancy which, in fact, could let fly a little safer in the range limits by preventing RF shadows, for instance, but not real range extension. This rx does not have a satellite port, but you don't need it for visual range unless your body contains carbon fiber parts or do crazy manoeuvers (which the gadget would prevent you to do anyways).
No, rather use "OrangeRX RX3S 3-Axis Flight Stabilizer V2 (V2.1 firmware) (V-tail/Delta/AUX)" PRODUCT ID: 9171000238F with a FrSky Rx. For this Rx you need $pektrum DSM2/DSMX transmitter or "OrangeRX DSMX/DSM2 2.4Ghz Transmitter Module (JR/Turnigy compatible)" PRODUCT ID: 9171000070 or "OrangeRx T-SIX 2.4GHz DSM2 6CH Programmable Transmitter w/10 Model Memory (Mode 2)" PRODUCT ID: 9403000002 or Mode 1 PRODUCT ID: 9403000001
Is that supposed to help? I've never posted anything before, so how can I have done it again? If I've done something wrong, a polite correction would be more help. Is this how newcomers are treated here? I'll look elsewhere for help in the future......
Michael, posted text is replaced by stars when you do any of the following: Use profanities (swear words), mention brands or products that HK doesn't sell, or post web links. If you need to mention a certain brand or a product, then you must obfuscate it so it isn't easily detected, e.g. like $pektrum, dee exx eight, insert underscores or spaces in the names or links etc. This is a c_ensor_ship that HK performs, it seems to be mostly automatic, but sometimes it appears to be manually executed.

Hi LasseK and handyjap. I had put dee-ex-six-i in my original post. Thank you for explaining. I was having problems getting the gyro on/off remote function to work, but I have now solved the problem. I appreciate you both taking the time to write helpful replies.
Hi handyjap. It was my own ignorance really - I'm new to r/c. I had omitted to adjust the flaps setting on the TX to 100% (it defaults to 0%). A club colleague showed me what I was doing wrong. Thanks again for your help
nice one, please set it up carefully, with gyro mode to the side you move the control should move in a sense to oppose it and not aid it, if it aids it reverse the sense, there is no auto throttle, i have kept the rudder authority high for my high winger

The wind has come up recently so only was able to do a few test flights. I mounted on a zoom foamy with graphics of receiver pointing towards the ground. Had to reverse the elevator but it will work.
Only flew pots at preset and noticed great knife edge stability. You work your rudder of course but the wing stayed perfectly vertical to the ground, and the plane flew a straight line towards some imaginary point in the distance. Waiting for wind to die down and experiment with pots, I was not able to hovering yet.
Binds good and easy to install!!just follow instructions in files tab!

Had mine arrived on the 1st week ,test it out and love it big time..this is best Flight Stab.money can buy,thank you Hobbyking for making it affordable for everyone..I got confuse when using two AIL and they were moving in the same direction like flaps..So what i did was I use a reverse servo,so I do not having to use a Y cable...
Thia will be my 3rd box, I have each version,and each time all i can say is that they are gettig better. they work very well ok to se up, and best of all cheap! i have mine in a 72 inch cub, just the ting for slow low flying, so 5 stars
