Me too.
I bought a uVector just because I can use it in place of a Guardian with a Sat rx.

Serial input of all flavors. That would satisfy me.
For the same price of course.

Guardian Advanced


I would mainly wan't it to do a few things that the guardian will not do.
First in 3D heading hold mode i would like for it to keep all axis that you are not moving locked. The guardian only does it when moving just the rudder it will keep elevator and ailerons locked but as soon as you move the elevator or ailerons all axis unlock.

Next i would want a setting to set how far the gyro itself will move the servos. Not just a servo travel limit for stick travel.

Those are the main things i would want so it would make practicing things like rolling harriers easier to do.

The limits on the servo tab in the PC app allow you to limit (or expand) how far the Guardian will move the servos. That's been available all along.

Locking individual axes is not as simple as it sounds and requires a complete re-think of the algorithms. This has been discussed before. Understood though, that however it's done, it's something you would like to see. The algorithms in the ET Vector and Micro Vector use algorithms like this already and it's very likely that that an advanced Guardian would use these algorithms instead of the ones we are used to so you should get your wish.

Thanks Rick. I have always gone with the G defaults and not touched these settings. In what circumstances would adjusting these settings be useful please? Happy to flip to the main forum on this one.

Any further developments here? I love my ETG's and want to incorporate them into my larger builds, but it definitely needs dual elevator inputs as well.... I have had to go to an HE A3S2 for the dual elv functions.
Thx

If the dual elevators are used only as elevators and not, e.g., tailerons, then there is an easy solution: a SmartFly Equalizer II (http://smart-fly.com/index.php?route...&product_id=62).

I previously posted that I have used the EQ II on some of my larger birds that have multiple elevator servos and I want to have separate control for neutral, endpoints, and balanced travel. The SmartFly EQ II allows all that for each elevator servo and is driven by the single elevator output from the Guardian. I've used this for several flying seasons with no adjustments needed after initial setup (straightforward.)

Standard disclaimer: no relationship with the vendor other than as a very satisfied customer.

Hey Micheal thanks for that! Looks like an easy solution. I love my ETG, but for the moment, I have an HE A3S2 in place cuz of the dual elv. I will have to see how that feels compared to my other birds with the ETG. I have read that there are some differences, but haven't had enough flight time with the A3S2 to make a determination....
Thx
