Good day people. Im using the version 3.0.0 deviation for my 8s. This may seem redundant in a sense, but Id like to know if anyone has tried or could either vouch for the functional paring of the OrangeRX RX3S 3-Axis Flight Stabilizer w/DSM2 Compatible 6CH 2.4Ghz Receiver with this new deviation firmware.

I dont want to buy the module and find out it wont work with my radio.

this things got the integrated 3 axis gyro to the receiver

I just got my RX3S the other day. I'm putting it on a scratch built wing. So far it pairs just fine. Gyros react and attempt to correct movement as expected. It also has delta mixing built into the rx so you'll want to get rid of any mixing you have going on in your Devo if you plan on using it on a wing.

I am currently trying to get the Gyro On/Off function working on my Devo7e.

Haven't flown it yet but I can vouch that they do bind to deviationtx 3.0. Also keep in mind that you'll need to reassign some channels as this rx is expecting throttle on CH1 and by default it's on CH3 when you switch over to DSM2 for your model setup.

Actually I just got the gyro on/off figured out.

You have to throw the dip switch on for the 'Aux Ctrl Gyro' on the rx. After that you can go to your mixer and go down to CH6. Set that to Simple. For Src put Fmode 0. Then Curve set to Min/Max. This shows a graph on the right of basically 1 or -1. Now when you're flying to can have the gyro off with FMode 0 or turn it back on with FMode 1.

The only problem I'm still having is that if I turn my TX on then it binds just fine. But after the wing is powered on I'm unable to shut off my TX. If the plane is still on when I turn my TX off then the throttle goes to a 0 value essentially turning the throttle on to 1/2 power.

You might be able to solve the problem with the failsafe settings;

HOWEVER! it is one of the non-negotiable rules of RC that you ALWAYS turn the model of before turning the TX off.

Hehehe, bet some of us have some interesting pics/stories there. I got my fingers and inside of my arm cut up once.
If it hasn't happened to you yet, picture trying to bath a rabid cat high on Red Bull!

I do not like pushing threads but I think some guys will have a similar problem with the OrangeRX with or without the stabilizer.

Like some Spektrum ones this RX saves the throttle failsafe value only while binding. For some receivers two options are available but the most common would be to have the throttle stick (or output if mixers apply) at -100. Afterwards start the bind procedure (again). That's all.

I bought a used e flite apprentice to teach my son not realizing it was the older version without SAFE stabilization. I use a Devo 10 and was wondering if I could add on a stabilizer. If so lemon rx or orange rx seem like options - which is better/easier to use with deviation? Also does it replace the receiver or is it truly just an add on? I would appreciate any guidance as this is pushing the limits of my abilities.

Depends on the model; some are add-ons, others (most newer versions) have an integrated receiver.

Thanks. That's what it looked like when I was checking the stores but what I really would like to know is:
1. Are they good receivers (the range/brown out issues are concerning when my plane already has a working receiver) and if so which is better - orange or lemon (and if not what about just an add on stabilization module)?

2. Will the stabilization work with my Devo 10 similar to SAFE - self-leveling?

It should all just be in the settings you use; typically one or more channel(s) are a dedicated channel that tells the stabiliser which mode to use, and possibly any adjustments to that setting. As a rough example, a channel output of 1000 (eg. value of a stick fully down, or "-100") could put the stabilser in "self-level" mode, 1500 (mid-stick) could be "acro", 2000 (top stick) could be "off"; so, once you have found out what kind of values your particular stabiliser wants on what channels for what modes, it should be pretty straight-forward to implement that in deviation.
Then there's the likes of the full-on flight controllers, which can do a lot more than just stabilising; GPS waypoints, return-to-home etc., which also need particular values sent across on one or more channels. They are likely a lot more research and configuration, but you can get some realy powerful ones for really cheap; often less than a dedicated "stabiliser"

Thank you. I also couldn't tell if the stabilizer was more like as3x - just to smooth out wind effects or true self leveling. Does anyone know?

However I find the same thing - flight controllers can add self leveling and much more such as gps rth. I was probably going to get this one:Bigaole BGL-6G-AP. www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2417656

Do you think it will work for my needs (selectable self leveling and gps rth) and be programmable for deviation (I think it's just a3 position switch)?

Any other flight controller suggestions?

Thanks again,

Chris

Sorry I haven't actually used one; just picked up an AXN Floater Jet that was fitted with a Crius AIO running Ardupilot, capable of adding a GPS for all of the above, but I've currently stripped it out to run it "normally". Also got a DIY multiwii using a $3 arduino nano and $2 MPU6050 breakout board (gyro/accel), but haven't installed it in anything.
There are a gazillion different FC boards out there now, and sounds like each has their own pros and cons. But if you drop out the GPS requirement then you can easily get powerful stabilisation with a heap of modes for sub $20 if you DIY.

PS. from the link are you in aus?
