In order to enable rescue or stabilisation modes you have to set Stabi/Function to a desired option. When Disabled, no special function will be used.

Info.png It is possible to set a different functions between Banks.

From version 1.1.0 it is possible to activate the Stabi/Function in the two ways:

  • Negative Global Gain
  • Separate channel (NEW)

1 Negative Global Gain

For normal flying a positive Global Gain is used. To activate function which is selected in the parameter Stabi/Function it is necessary to set a negative Global Gain.

Info.png Global Gain is still used to set the gyro gain for all axes. At the same time, positive or negative value will determine if selected function is inactive or active. So it is important to set the gyro gain properly for both normal flight and selected function. Usually same, but opposite values are fine (for example +40%/-40%)

The function is active as long as the Global Gain is negative. Then the Head-Lock for all axes is engaged again. Because unit allow to set the Global Gain by your transmitter or directly in the software, you have two options how to do that.

1.1 In the transmitter (common)

This is the common way how pilots are configuring the Global Gain. It can be easily programmed for a two-state switch. For the Rescue a momentary switch is the best. Usually you can find the configuration in the GYRO menu in your transmitter. For the beginning you can set:

  • Position 0: 40% (flight with Head-Lock enabled)
  • Position 1: -40% (selected function)

This will set a moderate Global Gain and allow to select which mode will be used anytime during the flight.

Do not forget to set the gains accordingly for your model. Also make sure that the Global Gain function is assigned in the software.

1.2 In the software

When you do not want to or can't set your Global Gain in the transmitter, you can do so in the software. There is only requirement to unassign the Global Gain function in the General/Channels window. This mean that transmitter have no control over the Global Gain. Instead the value is configured by the Sensor/Global Gain parameter.

There is disadvantage that in order to activate selected function, you have to set a negative Global Gain. This can't be changed during the flight normally. On the other hand, you can use a Bank Switching feature and program a different Function and Global Gain for each bank.

2. Second step

1.3 Function vs Gyro

Following table is describing how Global Gain can activate selected Function.

Function Global gain Gyro mode Mode
Disabled 0 - 100% Head-Lock -
Rescue (Normal) 0 - 100% Head-Lock -
Rescue (Acro) 0 - 100% Head-Lock -
Stabilisation (Normal) 0 - 100% Head-Lock -
Stabilisation (Acro) 0 - 100% Head-Lock -
Disabled -100% - 0% Normal (Rate) -
Rescue (Normal) -100% - 0% Head-Lock Rescue
Rescue (Acro) -100% - 0% Head-Lock Rescue
Stabilisation (Normal) -100% - 0% Head-Lock Stabilisation
Stabilisation (Acro) -100% - 0% Head-Lock Stabilisation

2 Separate channel

Function in the Stabi/Function parameter will be activated by a separate channel selected in the General/Channels.

Channel configuration
  1. Open the General/Channels.
  2. In the right part of the Channels window, select F: Stabi Function.
  3. Then select a channel that you can use for the activation.
  4. Assign a switch in your transmitter that will control the channel (assigned channel should react now).
Function indicator
  • 0 - function is inactive.
  • 1 - function is active.

2.1 Function vs Channel

Following table is describing how selected Channel can activate the Function.

Function Channel Mode
Disabled 0 - 100% -
Rescue (Normal) 0 - 100% -
Rescue (Acro) 0 - 100% -
Stabilisation (Normal) 0 - 100% -
Stabilisation (Acro) 0 - 100% -
Disabled -100% - 0% -
Rescue (Normal) -100% - 0% Rescue
Rescue (Acro) -100% - 0% Rescue
Stabilisation (Normal) -100% - 0% Stabilisation
Stabilisation (Acro) -100% - 0% Stabilisation

2.2 Function vs Gyro

Please note, that available Gyro modes are determined by selected Function.

Function Global gain Gyro mode

Rescue (Normal) 0 - 100% Head-Lock
Rescue (Acro) 0 - 100% Head-Lock
Stabilisation (Normal) 0 - 100% Head-Lock
Stabilisation (Acro) 0 - 100% Head-Lock
Disabled -100% - 0% Normal (Rate)
Rescue (Normal) -100% - 0% Head-Lock
Rescue (Acro) -100% - 0% Head-Lock
Stabilisation (Normal) -100% - 0% Head-Lock
Stabilisation (Acro) -100% - 0% Head-Lock
