A timer trigger that counts up or down continuously so long as the radio is turned on and that model is selected. Sometimes used with Persistent as a totalizer for time.
Allows the transmitter to send signals that would move the servos to 150% of their “normal” travel movement. Different radio vendors offer different amounts of extended servo travel under names such as travel volume or end point. Different servos have … Continue reading
Increases gimbal stick trims to 100% of range instead of default of 25%. Be careful with this option because a long press of the trim button could achieve full control surface deflection and render the plane unable to be controlled.
Allows options for setting servo positions should receiver lose transmitter’s transmission signal
An adjustable strength of feedback to a gyro or flight stabilizer. Determines aggressiveness of control action. Used in RC helicopters to stop the tail from exhibiting un-commanded changes in direction due to disc loading and/or wind. Also a term used … Continue reading
A form of simple flight controller that works on principle of a gyroscope developing forces used to measure change in attitude. Typically employs feedback loops with adjustable gains to match the responsiveness of a heli and keep the tail direction predictable. There … Continue reading
A heading hold gyro (also known as AVCS – Angular Vector Control System) is the most common form of Heli flight stabilizer. Endeavors to keep the helicopter always pointing in the current direction unless it is told to move. Allows … Continue reading
A timed voice enunciation of the timer count, broadcast over loud speaker or audio jack
The Taranis will immediately access up to 60 different model set ups by name and even more on the SD card. Each model can be named with up to 12 alphanumeric characters in both upper and lower case plus limited … Continue reading
A selectable timer mode that makes the timer a totalizing timer. If Persistent is checked in Timer Set Up, the last timer value before shutdown, or before changing the selected model is stored in memory. That value is restored when the … Continue reading
When RF module is PPM, allows setting the frame size, pulse lengths, and polarity to match the settings of the transmitting and receiving devices.
Radio Frequency transmission circuit used to send signals over the air between transmitter and receiver
A switch set up on a RC model Tx used to stop an internal combustion motor or an electric motor.
Restricts trim input to only the idle portion of stick throw unlike the usual offset with affects both ends of the throw. Useful in wet fuel set ups to avoid overdriving the throttle servo. Useful for electric power set ups to keep … Continue reading
There are 2 fully programmable timers (Timer1 and Timer2), that can count either up or down. If the value is set to 00:00 they will count up from 0. If set to a time, they count down from the preset value. The … Continue reading
Timer1, Timer2 See also Timer
Abbreviation for Timer1 and Timer2 in the Telemetry menu. See Timer and Timers … Continue reading
Tendency of a model to point into the wind due to unbalanced side forces on the front and rear of the craft by the wind. Occurs in both fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft.
