Telemetry; Acceleration in the Y direction in Gs from the TAS-01 Acceleration Sensor (not an S.Port compatible device)
Telemetry; Acceleration in the Z direction in Gs from the TAS-01 Acceleration Sensor (not an S.Port compatible device)
Above Ground Level
Telemetry; Barometric altitude above ground level in (meters or feet) reported by variometer sensor.
Telemetry; Barometric minimum altitude above ground level in (meters or feet) reported by variometer sensor.
Telemetry; Barometric maximum altitude above ground level in (meters or feet) reported by variometer sensor.
A device such as a wire or metal rod for sending or receiving radio waves. Some common types include: Printed Circuit Board (PCB) , Whiskers, Dipole, Mono-pole, V, Inverted V, Circular Polarized (CP), Skew Planar Wheel(SPW) with many other types … Continue reading
ArduPilot Mega – a flight controller board with built in gyros, accelerometers, and optional GPS. The APM is open source hardware, based on an Atmel micro controller, originally designed and manufactured by 3DRobotics.
Open source hardware and software to test prototype devices, frequently used by hobbyists and developers of new devices
The arrow symbols ↑ or ↓ describe the position of the 8 physical switches on the Taranis. The up arrow ↑ indicates a switch in the UP or FORWARD position. The down arrow ↓ indicates a switch in the DOWN or REARWARD position. For … Continue reading
Airspeed in meters/sec or feet/second as reported by the airspeed sensor
Maxium airspeed in meters/sec or feet/second as reported by the airspeed sensor
A process by which a helicopter can land without power by forcing air through the collective pitch rotor disc, allowing the rotor blades to continue turning. The pitch of the spinning blades is adjusted when close to the ground temporarily … Continue reading
Angular Vector Control System. Typically a heading-hold gyro which maintains the helicopter in the current direction until instructed to change by rudder command from the Tx. Allows the heli to fly sideways or backwards as well as hold position in … Continue reading
A type of open source software to create operating system code
Enables LCD backlight lighting.
Specifies LCD display backlighting wakeup activity. Choice of: OFF, Keys (detect button press), Controls (gimbal stick/slider/knob/switch), Both (Keys or Controls), or ON (always on)
Telemetry; Displays the transmitters operating voltage
Battery Eliminator Circuit – a voltage regulator built into an Electronic Speed Controller (ESC) to power the radio receiver and servos. Can be either a linear design or a switching design – different merits for each.
