New product: i86AP Flight Stabilization Control Board

Today Hobbyking added a stabilisation control board for fixed wing aircraft to their catalogue. This board supports conventional, flying wings (delta) and v-tail aircraft, easily selectable by on-board jumper. Unfortunately for v-tail aircraft an y-cable is needed if you are using 2 servo's.

The board is controlled by an Atmel Mega168PA 8-Bit RISC based micro controller and utilizing a single high precision 3-axis MEMS gyro and independent gyro gain adjustment for tuning aileron, elevator and rudder.

Not includeded are servo leads to connect your receiver to the i86AP Flight Stabilisation control board. You will need 3 of them, don't forget to include in your order.

I had a quick glance at the manual (which can be downloaded here) and it seems that it provides good information how to use this board.

Input Voltage: 4v to 6v DC
PWM Output: 50Hz, 1020-2020us
Gyro scale: +/- 1000dps
Gyro sample rate: 1KHz
Operating temp: -40° C to 85° C
Size: 30mm x 40mm
Weight: 8g

The new KK board supports fixed wing craft right out of the box and has accelerometers for autolevel. You can also assign a radio channel to turn it on or off.

Kind of Freaky!  since it has been25 years since I was into Rc they were just putting  "Expensive "Gyros into Rc Helicopters and it took a good hand to fly one. I came across auto stabilization by accident in my real flight flight simulator  I would bank the plane it would straighten itself out I thought there was something wrong with the plane ? For a "Newbie"  it might be a good thing to have depending on where you are in the perpetual " Build ,Fly, Crash "  Cycle at least you will be going in level.
