I would like to see a 3rd flight mode option, Rate mode with no self-level.

This mode would dampen movement on a windy day and make landings
and take off a bit more like an non stabilized aircraft.

Funny I want to try this with rate gain in the exact opposite.

I want to turn it off in the air and turn it on for landings.

It sounds like it has the option to change the gain in air. That would be a good
feature.

The reason I don't want self level is that I want to put it on a plane that a beginner
would fly. I still want the beginner to level the plane himself. The stabilizer
would give me the option of taking a beginner up on a day I would normally not
recommend he fly.

I have been waiting for a sub $100 airplane 3 axis gyro like this for a while.
Glad to see it!
Just like in the gyro for airplane use thread, Eagletree needs to provide a way to turn off the rudder gyro in flight.

It would be awesome if you could slave gain with airspeed. I'm sure if there was a company that could do this, you can, given that you already have the hardware in house.

Digital servos, ok with this? Is this an FY20A or FY30A rebranded + PC software added - a plastic or aluminum case?

2 other companies have such a unit that has this feature, one refer to it as predictive gain scheduling, however the price is alot more

If the Guardian has a gain plug, it might be possible to use the gyro sense feature, and assign different gain settings to the flight mode switch.

I am sure ones the manual is uploaded we will get a better understanding of what the guardian is capable of

Looking forward to actual RCG Users reviews

Hi Silver,

From my limited communications with Bill; I can say that this is based off of the Guardian stabilizer that is currently being used with the OSD PRO.


It is not a rebrand.


This should be less sensitive to Vibration and Temperature than the Fytech stabilizer.

I was using Guardian for stabilization, and FY20 for camera stabilization in freezing temperature, and the guardian performed flawlessly, while the FY20 was undependable to say the least. it is safe to say that the FY would have put my plane in a spyral had I been using it for stabilization.

In summation, This should be a highly desirable stabilization unit.

Wow, I didn't know what It could be, but I donated some amount of money to allthingsthatfly.com last month. An email came from them yesterday, that I won one in their giveaway!!!
My children and my friends would fly my foamies together with me next season with this helper.

Thank God !!!

Mike, I am with you on the FY20, In my view it is highly unpredictable,
I've experienced the death dive for no reason.

Correct me if I am wrong, but it is preferred that you use digital servos, when using any type of flight stabilization unit

+1 to the above; unless there might be some way (flight modes, etc) to have separate gain controls over each axis, I don't see how it could be used to help manage rudder control during takeoffs of my errant tail draggers & still work to help stabilize my aileron & elevator controls to fly all my airplanes in heavier winds. But I ordered it & will hope that these folks have figured this out. Hopefully the manual will tell us more.

Seagull/OSD Pro/Guardian?


Will the guardian work with an OSD Pro connected to a Seagull? And if so, in what capacity (which features are functional)?

Cheers
