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
GV1 thru GV9: OpenTX provides Global Variables to store quantities for use in multiple functions without having to edit each function individually. Global variables also can be linked to a slider or rotary knob to adjust variables in flight.
Maintains constant rotor head speed under changing loads. Typically becomes effective above a specified throttle setting and used for aggressive flying. Used in advanced collective pitch RC helicopters.
Global Positioning System, a satellite navigation system used to provide location and time information anywhere on earth
GPS altitude above sea level
Specifies format for display of GPS coordinates. Most GPS coordinates exchanged between computers are in NMEA (National Marine Electronics Association) format expressed as numbers with decimal fractions. The alternate HMS format expresses location in hours, minutes, and seconds.
Time from GPS Sensor
specifies Universal Time Coordinated (UTC) Offset for local longitudinal time zone (-12 through +12).

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
