Yep, so your observation is the same as mine. Heading gain is deactivated on all control surfaces if any stick is off center. Otherwise, in your test you would have seen the ailerons move back to...

Hi Dereck, that is very interesting, as it doesn't match my observations.

My bench test:
If I have heading gain active, holding the plane in level flight, then move it to a knife edge attitude,...

Safe mode receivers are completely different animals in their operation. From what I've been able to investigate, they use only rate gain for the flight modes, but play some clever tricks in the...

Dereck, the answer lies in the fact that deactivating heading gain does not re-center the control surface. So in your knife edge, when you move the elevator, the rudder stays at the position it was...

David, I think you are better off ignoring heading gain altogether and using just rate gain. My personal view is that heading gain is more gimmicky than useful, and can actually get you into trouble...

That isn't my understanding, but I'm happy to be corrected. I believe heading gain is deactivated for all 3 axes if any stick is moved off center (apart from throttle).

Hi David, the throttle channel has no effect on gains (unless you specifically set up a mix between throttle and the FM channel). You just need to be careful that you don't apply any sideways...

That's where the priority setting comes in. If you have AS3X in a model capable of 3D maneuvers, you should be reducing the gain to zero whenever stick movement is significant. And of course, you...

I guess when you get to the point where the experimenting is over and you are comfortable with the settings, you could treat it as a "safe" or "normal" mode. I actually feel "safer" when flying in...

I'm glad that's what you meant Dereck. Just checking :)

It's amazing how many people just don't get that.

Actually, it's best to set the rates, etc in the Master and leave the slave with a...

Are you saying that the Master doesn't see the Slave's rate. trim or expo settings when the Master is set to Pilot Link Master Mode?

Well, not quite. If you don't add any Heading gain (0%), then the Rate gain will still be in effect at stick center. But as soon as you add Heading gain it will override the Rate gain at stick...

You're not missing much. In practical terms it's a 6-channel Rx since there are only 6 ports for connection to flight controls. However, it still decodes 10 channels and you can assign 6 of them to...

Dereck, you've done a great job of explaining the intricacies of setting up the AR636.

A couple of extra bits of info:

1. I'd suggest that after tuning the gains from the Tx using Relative...

I know this is an old thread, but I just stumbled upon it.

Take note of Karnsy's last post folks. The AR636 can use Ch 5,6,7,8 or 9 (i.e. Gear, Aux1, Aux2, Aux3 or Aux4) as its Flight Mode...
