Stabilisation mode is feature of the unit which helps the pilot to maintain flight position. The model is fully controlled by the pilot but unlike normal flight mode, it has tendency to return to the horizontal level automatically.

You can activate the mode remotely by assigned switch of your transmitter. As long as the switch is in active position, the stabilisation mode will be engaged. Otherwise normal flight mode will be used.

1 Characteristics

  • Upon activation of the Stabilisation (Acro), the model will attain horizontal level rather slowly (skids down or inverted depending on what is closer).
  • Cyclic stick input from the pilot will control the model in the very same way as in normal flight mode.
  • As soon as the stick is returned to the center, the helicopter will move back to the horizontal level. Whenever you are unsure, just release the sticks and the helicopter will recover.
  • It is perfect for learning basic acrobatics maneuvers.
  • In this mode it is possible perform a flips or rolls as you are used to do from normal flight mode.
  • Collective pitch and rudder is controlled by the pilot as in a normal flight mode.

2 Setttings

To make it comfortable for your needs you can set the Direction control rate parameter. This will affect how fast the helicopter will return to the horizontal position when stick(s) are released.

  • Low values are recommended for beginners - it will return faster to the horizontal position.
  • Higher values will return the model slowly and will make it closer to a normal flight mode.
