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 (Scale), the model will attain horizontal level rather slowly (Always skids down).
  • Cyclic stick input from the pilot will tilt the model to a degree which can be configured by Direction control rate parameter.
  • It is perfect for learning basic transitions and stationary hovering.
  • In this mode it is impossible to perform a flips or rolls. This mean that this mode is not suitable for learning acrobatics.
  • Collective pitch is controlled by the pilot as in a normal flight mode.
  • Rudder gyro is in the Normal (Rate) mode.

2 Setttings

To make it comfortable for your needs you can set the Direction control rate parameter. This will affect how the helicopter will respond to the sticks.

  • Low values are recommended for beginners - it will return faster to the horizontal position and not allow tilting to a high angle.
  • Higher values will allow to tilt the model to a higher angle and to achieve faster flight speed.
