HobbyKing X-1000 Advanced Head-Movement-Tracker Gyro

HobbyKing X-1000 Advanced Head-Movement-Tracker Gyro
HobbyKing X-1000 Advanced Head-Movement-Tracker Gyro

X-GYRO 1000 is a two axis head tracking system, based on G sensor technology, designed for tracking complicated three-dimensional motion like head movement and so on, it can also be used on the areas of controlling drones and robots, transferring three-dimensional motion signals from hands, head of human to corresponding movement system on RC model, drone or robot.
The basic version of X-GYRO 1000 is specially designed for RC models with FPV(First Personal Version), it can be used perfectly with main stream transmitters or to be co-operated with wireless high frequency modular independently. It can transfer the movement signals to transmitter, and the transmitter can send out signals of head movement or position of head( on two axis), so that the real synchronization can be realized when screen on the goggles displayed video pictures, users can look around as if he were inside the RC model. Since it is compatible with transmitters in todays market, it is easy and straight forward to use. Its best advantage is that there is no need to have any fixed reference object to check and measure the inflection position of RC model, and no drift at all when it is in a stationary state compared with other products that need to make use of very complicated reference facilities or manual controlled transmitters.


Power: 8V to 12V DC power supply. Some
transmitters, especially those FUTABA ones, can supply power directly by trainer
connector. (ex. T9Z, FF9C). Some transmitters cannot supply power to X-GYRO, for
example 14MZ and 12FG. The simplest solution is to use an extra battery for those RC transmitters. The connector is already included in package.
Size: 25mmX35mm
Range for measuring: +-90 degree/second rotational speed movement.

Default Setting:

Channels: X axis- channel 7 Y axis-channel 8
Detective range G45 degree

Choice for transmitters;
(FF-7, FF-8, FF-9, T9Z, T12MZ, T14MZ)
Graupner: (MC20, MC24, MX22)
Multiplex transmitter: (Royal Evo, Cockpit SX, mc4000)
JR and other transmitters without programmable channel: (9303, 9X)

help me please... I connected this to turnigy 9xr. Did the connection on white wire futaba -> JR, set up mixer with PPM7 and PPM8 and still cannot see any tracker movement... red light on it flashes (two flashes, pause, again)... What else can I check? can it mean HT is broken?

I solved it (with help of HK support) - I needed to also switch wires in X-1000 futaba connector (white and yellow). After that change it started to work as expected :)

When trying to use with the 9XR and Futaba plug, you have 2 choices solder some wires and hope, or the following. The Futaba plug has 2 ppm wires JR only uses one (HT only uses one) so simply open the radio, unplug harness for Futaba plug (right side) and unplug the JR plug (left side) and plug the Futaba port into that socket. This allows the HT to work with no soldering and no change in settings minus adding the PPM signals to the right channels. Other then that seems to work great and no issues on my Bix3.

Thank you. Can you post a video showing how to make this modification and what you mean by minus adding the PPM signals to the right channels?

I dont have the time to make a video but can do my best to explain it, you need to remove all screws from the back of the 9xr (self explanatory and videos on how to do this). Once the back is removed you will see a circuit board right in the center. There is 2 5 pin plugs on the top right and left of the board (2 red and 1 white wire), as your looking at the board the connector on the right is for the Futaba and one on left is for JR plug. You need to unplug the one from the left, then unplug the one on the right and plug it into the left of the board. This allows you to use the Futaba port without soldering anything ( I left the JR plug undone as I never use it anyways). Now you will put the cover back on the radio and tighten all of the screws and plug the battery back in. Power on your TX and go to the mixer menu 5/11, the HT outputs on PPM 7/8, you need to highlight one channel you will use for the HT servos. For example ch 5, hold menu and when the edit mix screen comes up change the source to PPM 7 or 8, repeat for the other HT channel used. Once complete you should be up and running with the HT on the 9XR, happy day.

Looking to get this with the Turnigy 9xPro. Does anyone know if it is compatible? I seem to be getting mixed answers. If it matters, I am looking at either this: OrangeRX DSMX/DSM2 Compatible 2.4Ghz Transmitter Module (JR/Turnigy compatible) or this: FrSky XJT 2.4Ghz Combo Pack for JR w/ Telemetry Module & X8R 8/16Ch S.BUS ACCST Telemetry Receiver For my transmit module.

Does anyone know if there is any cable or jumper or adapter for T9X or JR type Transmitters?

Hola. Tengo una emisora Graupner MZ 24 y me gustarí*a que me indicaran como conectarlo al X-Gyro 1000 para que funcione correctamente ya que no trae cable con conexió*n para ella. Un saludo.
 Miguel FP 1707 points
Parece que solo esta hecho para futaba, para las demas radios no trae cable de conexion. En YT hay algunos videos en los que la gente suelda los cables directamente a la placa del modulo. A ver si a alguien se le ocurre sacar al mercado algun adaptador para otras marcas de emisoras(Sin acentos).

Great tracker, I have one of the magnetic based ones but it has the limitation of having to face magnetic north to work but it also has no drift. The X1000 is easy to set up, I am using it with a Futaba 7C. It was easy to change the default channels from 7 and 8 to 6 and 7. An instruction manual in English can be found here

Works very well for Head Tracking. Using it on a 9C with great success. I removed the little push button centering switch for a wire harness attached at base of radio. Now I can reset position with one finger and no need to reach over your head.

There is no Manual enclosed. Allthough in the Reviews you can find a link to a PDF, this does not help you too much, if you don't have a Futaba Transmitter. What first looks like a Multiplex Plug on the Product image is just another Futaba plug and *not* MPX-Compatibel (at least not for RoyalPro). If you don't want to Blow your circuit's better search for more Infos on how to make this work with a MPX Transmitter (I didn't find much yet)

This product is good for FPV. I use it with a MPX Royal EVO and MC 4000 without any problem. please, tel the factory that all users haven't only Futaba Tx because connectors included in package are only for Futaba ! So I build myself a special connector for MPX Tx , and now all is right. Thank you HK for the good price .
