Practice, and only Practice will make you perfect




HK has just launched this product called Arkbird Autopilot System (though it was in the market for a while with mixed sentiments) what are the stand outs of this device ? they are:-

(a) Irrespective of your  stick movement (Full back/full forward/right and left) angles are restricted in leveling mode

(b) You can set your own virtual fence beyond which the model wont go, it will return to base

(c) Unlike some it has auto throttle, will maintain safe speed as set by you (This in heavy head or tail wind cold be a bummer)

(d) Displays lat/ long (If you want to) which is different from other similar products in the market

(e) RTH (return to home)is breeze, non leveling mode is good for flying around, switching on leveling mode levels the aeroplane immediately

Even for an experienced it is good i guess, especially for maidens,(Will take the fun away though) ? any takes on that

I plan to get hold of an autopilot system, not sure if I should get the ArkBird or HKPilot Mega 2.5 plus gps module. I am not sure how modifiable ArkBird is.

ArkBird is purely plug and play with only three options conventional Plane, Elevon and hover mode with RTH, four way point navigation,  heading hold & position hold. For Beginner it is a cheap and very good route to FPV.

@aeroasgar
Maybe you meant Hi Dad when you addressed rcpilotacro.
If you spend a few (several) hours searching this forum
you can find out who rcpilotacro is.
In spite of his (low) age you'll find he's one BIG DAD.
