The Rescue mode is used for model recovery from a situations where the pilot is unable to control it with a confidence. The Rescue, so called Bailout, is activated by the pilot remotely with a preferred switch on the transmitter. During normal flight it should be inactive.
Whenever it is needed, the pilot can hold a switch or a button which will engage the recovery. As long as the switch is in active position, the Rescue will be engaged too. Immediately after returning a switch/button to inactive position, the pilot will get full control of the model again.
We highly recommend to use a momentary switch, which will return to the original position on its own. Thus it is easy to activate and deactivate the rescue just for a very short period of time.
Upon activation of the Rescue (Acro) the model will perform the following:
- Collective pitch will be set automatically to allow ascending (depending on the Rescue collective parameter).
- Model will rotate as fast as possible to recover the Horizontal position (depending on the Cyclic Ring settings).
- The model will ascend in position which is closer to the horizontal level (inverted or skids down).
- The model will ascend as long as the mode is active.
Due to high demands for a power supply (BEC) it is recommended to verify that it can handle high current spikes! These will occur in the moment of activation. You can use the BEC Tester built-in in the Spirit Settings software.
