If you have the AR7000 with the data on them, then you can set each surface to where you want it during failsafe.

I am still trying to get my head around this....

Can you explain what you mean by " the AR7000 with the data on them"

and can you state whether or not will the FY-21AP II be able to (in theory) control the surfaces whilst in "failsafe"?

The AR7000 receivers that have the word DATA on the label can be programed to set each channel to where you want it during failsafe. In the picture you can see what I mean. The earlier made AR7000 didn't have this feature.

An update on my experience with the FY-20A.

It has the same problem as the FMA copilot on futaba radio gear. Something to do with how futaba rx output PCM. Anyway, a servo buffer is required on the aileron channel for smooth operation.

That has cured the issue I referred too earlier in the thread with an unwanted jitter on the aileron channel. I view this as a futaba issue rather than a stabilizer issue as futaba HAVE to do things differently. Anyone using Futaba gear with this system may want to buy a servo buffer.

I'm busy with work and posting from my phone so will try to give more detail when I get time.

Regards

Fergus.

Thanks for the info Fergus.
Does this only apply only to using Futaba PCM?
What if you used PPM?

I have the FY-20A but not setup yet.

Which Futaba transmitter are you using? I cured the problem on my 12 and 14 channel Futaba systems by reassigning aileron to channel 1 and elevator to channel 7. This separates the pulses enough to clear up any problems.

Actually the 1st AHI using IMU was RVOSD as display and FLEXIPILOT as autopilot, about one year ago.

Also, can you configure what is shown on the OSD or is it preset?

Substract the "autopilot" (waypoint nav) if you refer to the FY-21AP. For waypoint nav you need the FY-3ZT which is around USD 1200.

yes but really it does come back home and have the ability to circle at any given point... that's pretty good for an OSD.

of course it all has to be proven.... mine is sitting in my plane waiting for a test day... I am sick as heck and we have a week of rain ahead ;-)
