We had a standard interface for years; it was the advent of all the proprietary serial channels that changed it.

I very much second this.
All I really want is RTH.
The pots have never been an issue and you only re-set them very infrequently.
KISS and cheap!

Exactly. I Have been using Bigaole AP with RTH. Brilliant! Now I am experimenting with an Omnibus FC as it also is capable of RTH and loiter etc etc and is only $30. Also being adapted for sonar. (fixed wing and multi rotor)
Personally I am staying away from manufacturers that used closed shop products now.
There is some amazing stuff coming out that is user friendly and uses a GUI (iNAV) to select flight modes.

I just received my 3D printed hard cases from RMRC.
The G fits like a glove.

I ended up buying a HOBBY EAGLE A3 SUPER II I has all the features that I wanted and a nice case. Eagle Tree should have a look at that one and incorporate most of the features. So far I have 44 flights with no problems.

I will still be in the market for the Guardian-Advanced for my next airplane. ET should try to time product releases to better match the flying season.

I had also tried the A3S2 and was fairly impressed with the feature set overall.....until two units went wonky in two different planes (after correct setup and many fine flights) and lost both planes. One of their major issues is the "delay" built into the auto-balance mode. It just does not react fast enough in a panic situation, unlike the ETG which is pretty instantaneous. I am sticking with the ETG for that reason.

I mainly fly sport aerobatics and never program any of the auto-balance or auto-level type modes.

Maybe that's good information for ET. If you add lots of features make sure that you have enough computer power to run everything fast enough for a high performance airplane. The Guardian Advanced should probably have a high performance 32-bit CPU with plenty of high speed memory,

Very long time with no updates?????????????

How is prototype testing going? What are the new features?

Will it happen before the flying season is over?

This is almost certainly not going to happen before this flying season is over. Probably not before the next flying season is over either.

Sorry for the delay guys. As of now we are not developing the Guardian Advanced any further. So many of the options and features are available in the MicroVector (and much more) at a competitive price. We will let you know if we re-open this project. Thanks again for all the feedback.

Very sad news.

Looks like I will be purchasing a couple more HOBBY EAGLE A3 super II gyros. They are perfect for my needs and I can get hem at a very reasonable price.

I really like to support American companies but sometimes they are just way slow to bring products and upgrades to the market.
