HobbyEagle A3 V2. 6 Axis Airplane Gyro & Stabilizer
A3 Supports 4 flight modes, including Normal, Auto-balance , Auto-hover and Gyro Off mode. You can switch them using a 3-way switch on the transmitter. But if you are using a 2-way switch instead then you can only use 2 of them during flight. The color of the LED shows you that the flight mode currently selected, as shown below.
A3 allows you to choose 4 kinds of mode definitions for the 3-way switch, the factory default is Mode-1 (Normal-Balance-Hover). You can change it through function 7 in the setting menu, as shown below.
Normal mode is the most basic application of the gyro. In this mode, the gyro will sense angular velocity on each axis and make a momentary reaction. The normal mode is suitable for all types of fixed-wings, it can effectively improve the stability of your plane specially on a windy day.
The auto-balance mode is designed for the new beginners or the FPV applications. When operating in this mode, the controller will command the plane to maintain level flight automatically when you release the sticks. When switch it to this mode from any other modes in an emergency, the plane will recover to the level flight automatically, which we call "one-click rescue".
The auto-hover mode is another form of the self balance ability of the controller. The only difference is that the correction from the gyro will be applied to both pitch and yaw axes, to keep the plane always vertical. When switch to this mode, the plane will lift its nose and start to hover automatically, which we call "one-click hover".
Gyro Off Mode
Choose this mode to disable the gyros for all channels. The plane will be completely under the control of the radio. The plane will go back to its previous performance when operating it in this mode. Usually it is only used to test.
One-click Hover and Auto-hover
A new flight mode which we call Auto-hover was added in new A3. When operating in this mode, the self-balance ability will be applied to both elevator and rudder. The plane can hold its hover attitude without any control except the throttle.
After switching to auto-hover flight mode, you only need to control the throttle to maintain enough pulling force for the plane. This mode can be used to reduce the difficulty of hover practice.
One-click Rescue and Auto-balance
The auto-balance mode is designed especially for the beginners or FPV applications. When operating it in this mode, the controller will help the plane achieve level flight automatically. It can be also used to recover the plane from any other attitudes, or help to get a stable takeoff and landing.
The new A3 series can be attached flat or upright, to maximize the use of space for your plane.
