Default Banggood 3 axis stabilisers ?

This is the one I was actually looking at on Banggood :
http://www.banggood.com/FPV-3-Axis-G...-p-925715.html
which has an uncanny resemblance in pots, switches and connections to the Orange, but different case of course.

The P1 ...
http://www.banggood.com/P1-Gyro-3-Ax...-p-911234.html

Orange have been out there and known by many .. Hobby King being a giant retaiiler. Hextronic producing the orange stabiliser.

The pricing of the BG stab's is interesting and certainly attractive. The first is similar in look and set-up as i see to the Orange stab.
The P1 is markedly cheaper than either ...

So ........... do they work ? Are they a viable alternative to Orange ?
Are they upgradable ? Do they need upgrade ?

Do the pots on them provide better control of sensitivity than the stock Orange shows ?

For me - I was one of the old school that basically wasn't convinced of use in fixed wing. But having now used Orange in my models - i am a convert and can see that it is a development that will evolve and increase.
BG may be later on the market with these - but I'm interested in reports from those who actually use them and especially anyone who can compare with other offerings such as Orange.
If they are viable alternatives ... then P1 pricing is very attractive and could just be a ticket for more of my models to be fitted out.

?? Any info ?

Have you looked at the Lemon? They can work with your Taranis : http://www.lemon-rx.com/shop/index.p...product_id=106



A nice combo 7 channel RX/ 3 axis stabilizer for $USD 19.00. I use them and they're really nice. No problems. I also use the Orange combos. No problems.

Cheers,

Hawk

I don't have a Taranis .... I will never have a Taranis ......


I am a 9x / 9xr man ... who migrated from expensive JR and Futaba ...

For $19 ... I may as well stay with Orange - I have the Atmel and USB gear to fit ... and I'm only interested in 3 axis basic stabilisation ... even the Heading Hold that flashing gives is of no use to me ..
The Banggood offerings are cheaper and appear to offer same as the more pricey stuff ... the P1 is only $12 .. and free shipping to me.

I don't know where you get idea from Hawk - that I am a Taranis user ?

cheers ...

Nigel

Oh Oh .... did I hear the sound of a big Gong then ?

Taranis has no connection with 9x actually ........... even though they often get lumped into same conversations ...

Just ordered a P1 ... so lets see if I get similar to what Panther advised me earlier ...

On the BG site - there's a photo of the P1 plugged into what looks like a USB coupled board to pc in background ... have asked on BG if that is so...

The flashed Orange is easier to reverse as you just turn the pot in the opposite direction whereas the P1 has to be done with the sticks on your Tranny. However, it is easy to do. (easier than some ESCs but similar protocol)

Talking Taranis and 9X. The cases are made in the same factory, just cosmetic differences on the Taranis. The back of them is identical down to the screw holes and battery cover.

Is that 9xr or 9x ? 9xr I think .. yes ? It wouldn't surprise me to have the basic provided by FS and then FrSky do their bit with it ... like cars - there's so much cross over with them now that you really only have a few actual separate manufaturers despite the multitude of names.

With regard to reversing ... one of the 'niggles' on the Orange way .. is the cross relationship of Tx and Gyro reversing ... something that the flashing sorts out.

A short post about the P1 would be really cool if you could 'Panther' ? The Orange has a lot of write-ups online ... maybe time to show the competition ?

I hope to write something later when I get mine ... but I will not be home for some appreciable time ... about a month probably.

9X Nigel. I had (just sold a couple of days ago) Sorry but I only use Taranis now. I kept about 5 9X rxs because the bloke only wanted one 6 Ch one!!
I have had to order some extension leads for my wing and P1. The ones I have are too short so it will be a week or two before I can write anything up suitable.
However I have it in operating mode for Delta and it works well on the bench.

Hi P ... pal of mine has the Taranis and flies his 60cc Sbach on it ... you can hear the 'voice back' on it when he's flying ... I haven't looked at the back - but it didn't look anything like my 9x or 9xr at the front. But cosmetics are often deceiving.

With regard to leads .... I was always buying extensions and diy joining to get desired ... I found multi strand telephone cable excellent for multiple servo layouts. I then got fed up and decided to 'clean' up my extensions and create my own ...

Hobby King crimper ... bags of pins / cases .... reel of standard servo flat cable .... and a decent gun stripper ... WOW ... never looked back ... leads to exact needs in seconds.

Yes Nigel but I couldn't get any male pins locally , only the female pins. I have all the rest.
Next time have a close look at the Taranis and you will see the resemblance. Only the knurly grip is different pattern on the back.
