Greetings all! I'd like to take a minute to introduce everyone to my winter project- the A
river with integrated F
ailsafe. It's something I've cooked up to answer the problem of not having enough space for all the necessary electronic hardware in today's smaller WTCs. (Measurments are a scant 1¼” x 7/8” x 3/16”)
The pitch stabilizer uses a solid state sensor, 10-bit precision and DSP technology to make it the smoothest ride around. I've tossed in a bunch of useful setup features as well: two sensitivity settings, trim-pot neutral adjustment and a built-in zero-bubble indicator. Capable of drawing power through the ballast channel connector the ADF’s also supports stand-alone operation, freeing up the pitch channel on channel-limited radios.
The integrated failsafe is a two-stage device: Upon signal loss the ADF immediately issues a “neutral” command to the ballast servo to prevent taking on any more ballast. If the receiver signal is not recovered after three seconds the ballast channel is then driven to the user-set fail-safe position, blowing your ballast tank dry. The ADF also features an indicator LED to show when stage one and stage two failsafe have been activated.
