Unless direct rate is on; then, if the trim is large enough, the G will interpret the trim as a rate command, and continue to rotate the aircraft on that axis.

The right way to trim with a G is off, then execute 1 or 2 gestures after landing.
Best way to trim, hands down.

Here's another case for the G from RMRC, for $4.99.
It encloses the G.
I just ordered some. They don't show them in stock, but if you contact them they will 3D print them for you.

Guardian 2D/3D Stabilizer problem


Been flying with this Guardian 2D/3D Stabilizer for six months now with no problem. But today when I would put it in 3D mode it would change the ailerons by 2 or 3 degrees. 2D mode is fine. I had a servo to go out with me and I replace both ailerons servos. This was the first flight with the new servos in her. Do I have to go back and redo the trimming step as if it was the first time with the Guardian again ?

Just want to say Thanks Eagle Tree! Maidened the Guardian equipped P51 last night and she flew like she was on rails. Just kept it in 2D for a shakedown flight.

Tom,

Congratulations on the maiden, must say that model has a great "presence" in the air....

You know if more pilots followed your example on a maiden flight there would be a lot less crashes and you nailed that maiden landing great job.

Thanks Mark. Just flew it cautiously to get the feel of it. Is my first large'ish warbird (have the 1.2 blondie and 1.2 Spitfire) and wasnt exactly sure how sluggish it was going to feel. Might have come in a little hot with half flaps, but didnt want to slow down too much.
