Utilizing a single high precision 3-axis MEMS gyro, the OrangeRX 3-Axis Flight 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 OrangeRX 3-Axis Flight 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: Capable of stabilizing flight on just about any fixed wing aircraft 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
Specs: Size: 51x32x14mm Weight: 14g IC: Atmega168PA Gyro: 3-Axis MEMS Input Voltage: 4.8-6.0V AVR interface: Standard 6 pin Signal from Receiver: 1520us Signal to Servo: 1520us
Try this: I always use flaperons and two elevator servos mostly for redundancy of servos. BUT the planes fly fine and stabilize great if you only connect the stabilized outputs (Ch 1 & 2) to servos on the LEFT half of the plane. Use the transmitter mix to send the right side servos information on channels 6 and 7 and NOT through the stabilizer. I can use the FLAP function and alier-vators too. Do not use right side aileron and left side elevator or vice versa. Be sure to get the NORMAL-REVERSE functions straight before you fly.
somebody know for what is the connector AVR and ISP ?
Thanks a lot

Does anyone have the User manual? I'd like to find out what the non-servo ports are used for?
Hobby king should add the documentaiton when they offer these new products..........

Having received my Stabalizer I raise the following matters.
why no instructions with item
nothing to explain the use or purpose of the many connection points.
I got it working but had to make a Male/Male ext. Lead
flew plane and it was superb.
-will purchase another but suplier should provide help on how to use to full extent.

I did a little bench testing of how this unit works. I set up a spare receiver and connected it to this unit driving some spare servos. This answered a couple of questions. (A real manual could have done this too). The aile2 output is not simply a Y-lead equivalent. The second output is electronically reversed from the primary aileron output. If you have one servo per aileron then this feature may not be useful. On my aircraft I have the servo orientation mirrored on each side so this second aileron output on the flight stabiliser actually causes a double negative and now both ailerons move in the same direction - like flaperons or spoilerons. A Y-lead is the solution for me. The reversing switches also perform two functions. They reverse both the direction of servo travel plus they reverse the direction of the stabilising output. On initial installation it could be that the stabiliser actually enhances any disturbance in flight direction. I imagine the aircraft would be unflyable in this condition. If this happens you need to change the switch position on the flight stabiliser (so that it counters direction changes due to upsets) and then reverse the servo direction in your transmitter, so that the servo moves as it should for control. These switches would allow you to mount the stabiliser in different positions in the aircraft (upside down for example) and still achieve th

Very nice stabilizer for FPV.

I installed one of these on my Lighted foamy and will be ordering a few more as soon as they come in stock.
Setup was a breeze even with out a Manual. I had it installed and working in about ten minutes at the field.
The Pots are very sensitive and would suggest that you do a lot if bench testing before flying. Set the Pots so they barely make the surfaces move as you shake the plane then adjust up to your liking.
Also if you use a Y cable in the ailerons instead of the second channel it makes it twice as sensitive.
I flew my foamy in a 10-15MPH cross wind when before i would have never taken it out of the van!!!
