Question
"3D" Mode with Guardian Expander?

I, like many others, do not like "fighting" the plane when flying with the Guardian Expander module, however, I do want stabilization while flying.

Is it possible (or will it be soon) to configure the Guardian Expander so that it provides solid stabilization, but in a manner that it holds the plane at the orientation that it is at when the sticks are centered? On the new Guardian stand alone unit, this is referred to as "3D" mode.

When I fly straight and level, I want the "stabilization" to correct any non-input pitch and roll movement (caused by wind, thermals, etc). When I bank the plane to turn, I want to stop the roll by centering the stick (as is normal w/o stabilization), and I want the plane to hold that bank angle. NOT snap back to level flight.

BillPa... Will EagleTree be adding the "3D" stabilization mode to the Guardian Expander module?

Hi Mike,

Any update on this? This alone is making me waffle on using my guardian and even with setting the stabilized "box" to a small size this still isn't fun when trying to fly inverted.
