perhaps i was mistaken. the gyros im used to working with have no way to sense gravity, all they do i count angles and try to maitain the angle i set them at.
usualy i use old school analog gyros. i just count the mV change and log the time, then work backwards to maintain the more or less angle i wanted.

so i assumed that, seeing as how the AS3X uses gyros and not acclerometers, that the board would have no way of seeing the acceration of gravity downwards, and just try to maitain by counting angluar change of where ever its inital position is.

ive been wanting a spitfire, so can you tell me if i initalize the plane with the nose slightly up, how will the board know when im 'hands off' and trying to go level, or slighly below the angle it started at? i would have assumed it would keep trying to get back to the attitude it started at.

what AS3X plane do you fly?
