OK thanks - I guess I'll just have to experiment, and buy a cheap laptop otherwise it will be a long process.

I have another question, please. I have Input 7 set up as the input to enable 'I Adjust Heading Lock'. The default values for all axes are 0.000 - is the Heading lock function always inactive at the default? If I set the values to 0.01 as suggested in the manual and send to the gyro, when I read it back the values are back at 0.000. Is this working correctly?

The saved text file shows these values:

RTIgainX : 0.01
RTIgainY : 0.01
RTIgainZ : 0.01

Firmware version 3.41

GreatPlanes F1 Rocket Maiden w/ Ice-man Gyro


Just recorded the maiden flight of the F1 Rocket with the Ice-Man gyro (and Bluelight-tech isolation switch) today. Check it out:
GreatPlanes F1 Rocket Evo Maiden Flight (9 min 56 sec)

Flies very well. I'm using the gyro really more as a controller here, but its good to have it for take-off and to switch it on as needed in windy conditions for extra stability.
It comes in very fast, but room for improvement on the landings!

Gyro gains set to:
Pitch (x): 4.3
Roll: (y): 4.7
Yaw: (z) 8.4

This sounds right, since you're not setting the I value as a fixed static value (as you would if you did this from the Prof1 tab page). It is only set temporarily. Note also that it will be reset back to 0 when the sticks are moved away from central, unless you use the special firmware v3.5 which removes this resetting for the yaw. (See a previous post on this forum on this subject)

Looks good. Could try some flaperons to slow down the landing speed..

Yes, I need to come in slower. Didn't want to come in too slow on the Maiden flight, but will try to slow it down from further out.
