Pilot Assist

On the Nova I try to stay away from that. It kinda porpoises trying to maintain altitude. It doesn't use gyros or accelerometers, only GPS, so it's not very good. I only use RTH on my NOVA only when necessary.

It works if you need to "take your hands off the wheel" so to speak for a few moments. Not a true autopilot though.

does PA use the IR sensors or just GPS info?

GPS for altitude and heading and IR for attitude (tilt) on the aileron axis.

It does use the IR. I have heard some great things about the PA and I'm about to test it next week.

NOVA OSD First Test of RTH and PA Mode on Hobby King Bixler RC Glider FPV Flight (6 min 51 sec)


The pa is basically same as RTH but it just goes straight.

My Nova actually works better for stabilization than my FY31AP. I disconnected the elevator channel so it’s ailerons only. PA works perfect!
