Based on Eagle Tree's proven inertial stabilization technology, the Guardian 2D/3D Flight Stabilizer stabilizes gas, electric, deltas, v-tails, sailplanes, turbines or just about any other type of fixed wing model.
This stabilizer works not only for standard flying but for 3D flying as well! It features 2D and 3D flight modes, with different sub-modes in each to allow for many different stabilization options. This device is feature packed offering more options than any other flight stabilizer of its kind on the market currently. It is easy to setup without the need for a PC connection. Its advanced menu options can be accessed via the PC software (micro USB cable required for PC connection, sold separately).
Tiny the reason it should be fine is that although it won't be stabilizing the rudder, ailerons and elevator will be stabilized, you just plug the ailerons and the elevator in, but not the rudder, if you don't trust me just look around on rcblogs and on the Internet to find examples of people using it.
This works great on ant fixed wing aircraft! The only required input is the alrions, but obviously you'll want to input elevator as well. The Vampire does not have a rudder so you just leave that input unplugged I would not recommend trying to 'stabilize' the steerable nose gear
I take off and land in 2D mode but mostly fly in 3D mode. If I get too far away and lose orientation, or if I get a little out of control I flip it back into 2D for a quick recovery. Landing is so easy with this stabilizer. Perfect 3-point landing every time!
Postautov it works fine with vibration, just be sure to push the servo connectors in firmly, and it helps if you use velcro or double sided tape to keep it down. However make sure there are no stresses on the wire, be sure there is always a little slack.
Quintis yes i used it on my 1.4m EPO Warbird w/ Retracts Plug-&-Fly and it works very well, one of my propellers actually had a crack and snapped in half, although it was still quite hard to fly and i landed it immediately(and safely) if i hadn't had it, the plane would have been screwed.
yes its safe to use in twin motor plane ..this will not affect your throtle response it simply controls your control surfaces to help stabilize the plane..its great... i advise you to when using this to power your rx from a bec or seperate bat or add a capacitor
I've been reading the Guardian's instruction manual at Eagle Tree's website and I get impression that even if all you have is a 4chan. tx or even a 3chan. tx (rud.&elev. or elev.&ail.) Guardian will still work because the default setting is the 2D mode. Can anyone verify this?
*3Dnewbee..while you can use it with a 6 channel RX, You really need a 7 channel RX. The Stabilizer requires 6 inputs to the Receiver to utilize all the features: ELE, AIL, RUD, Gain, AUX and MOD. And then you need throttle.
John my plane is set up with a y connector for my aileron on one channel, i know the mod is put on a 3 way switch and the gain is put on a knob or switch where do the aux wire connect to and what is it function i have a 9 channel tx -rx now
John thank you for your in put my reciever has a aux port but my 4 chanel tx does not have a control for it also going by the picture there is a gain and mod what do i plug in and how do that work thank you
hi pair-a-dice, eagle tree seems to be quite small and could even fit in your smallest aircraft, I also think delta is not supportet with f-tek but check that yourself because I could be wrong, never heard anything bad about eagletree its also a bit cheaper, but the case from f-tek is more robust if that helps
Simply amazing piece of kit. I'm new to 3D flying so stuck this on my Hobbyking EPP yak54 for a bit of craic. With the gains maxed out I can hover this plane on its prop, knife edge is a piece of cake and the 2D mode gets me out of those brown pants moments at a flick of a switch.
Okay so this bag of tricks is doing all the hard work and the guys at my club who don't know it's installed think I'm gifted but you can turn the overall gain down on the tranmitter as your skills improve or adjust the individual axis gains to off to make learning much quicker.
For 50$ it's a steal as I've saved my plane many many times over already and it has given me the confidence to fly my plane 'like I stole it!"

Mounted this stabilizer in to an MX2. have had the device for ages, flew it at long last in 30 knot winds. Only problems were going in to rolls whilst it was on. In 2d mode plane decided to try to correct itself halfway thru the roll. Also tried a loop, got halfway in the loop and it went beserk. Have to turn the ET off to perform stunts. Whilst landing, cut motor and held breath. Plane landed in crosswind perfectly, 3 point landing. Best accessory you could possibly have for the price. Only cost $52 back when I bought it, see the price has risen since. Still good value. Have purchased 4 different stabilizers and this wins hands down.
Ein super Stabilizer, alles dabei, laesst keine Wuensche offen. Sogar eine ausfuehrliche deutsche Bedienungsanleitung im Netz

Get this stabilizer and don't worry much about gusty days anymore! My guess is that one day every receiver will have such a beast integrated. Some designers are probably already working on it, so radio manufacturers pay attention! Hope they come off back-order soon so that I can get one more:)

Habe das Teil an meiner Graupner MX 20 installiert. Funktioniert in allen belangen gut. Gain lä*ß*t sich schö*n einstellen und beide Modes arbeiten zuverlä*ssig. Lediglich die Hü*lle des Gerä*tes kö*nnte stabiler sein. Ist alles butterweich wie die alten Spektrumempfä*nger.
