Tech Notes
 
NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
This is a Pilot Assist Link (Auto Pilot) For Aircraft Use (Not Helicopters).
When You Release The Transmitter Sticks, The PA-2 Automatically Returns
The Aircraft To Level Flight Even If It Enters A Dangerous State
Due To The Effect Of Wind Or Erroneous Operation.
This Simplifies Training In Model Aircraft Flying Techniques.

FEATURES

This Is A Horizontal Stabilizer For Model Aircraft and Incorporates
The Latest Sensor Technology.
Operates On A Single Aileron Servo.
Supports two Channels To Level The Wings and Bring Plane To Level
Flight.
Automatically Controls The Elevators and Ailerons, But When The
Modeler Operates A Stick, The Sensitivity Drops According To The
Amount Of Stick Operation and Stick Operation Has Priority.
Sensitivity Can Be Adjusted By Transmitters Having Volume Control-
(At Least 5 Channels and At Least One Extra Channel Is On A Dial.)
(See COMMENTS) Or By The Gain Control On The Amplifier Unit Itself.
Some Radios W/Volume Control Are: SKYSPORT 6VA, 6XA, 7UA, 8UA, 9ZA.
Other Brands Of Radios May Work If They Are Wired Like And Have
Connectors Like Futaba Has.
Servo Reversing Switches Located On Amplifier Unit.

One Instruction Manual

COMMENTS

It Is Not Recommended To Fly: On Days When The Sun Is Extremely
Bright or Reflective, Ground Is Snow Covered, Over Water Or Near
Reflective Buildings, or in Very Low Light Conditions (Dusk, etc).
This Unit Only Keeps The Aircraft Level, It Does Not Automatically
Fly The Aircraft From Takeoff To Landing.
Wiring:
From Amp to Sensor: Red/Black & Yellow/Orange w/2-Pin Connectors
From Amp to Rx: Blue J Connector For Elevator
Black J Connector For Aileron
Sensitivity: (Volume Control) Red J Connector For Auxiliary (Used Usually In
Channel 5, And Will Enable The Use Of Transmitter
Volume Control To Change Sensitivity In Flight.
From Rx to Amp: Channel 1 Aileron
Channel 2 Elevator

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE OLDER PA1 AND THE PA2:
PA1 had a slot for the second Aileron Servo. Customer must use a
"Y" connector for the second Aileron servo with the PA2.
The Gain on the PA2 can be adjusted directly on the unit itself
and thus does not require a transmitter with Volume control.
