AG61 Model Taxiing Rectifying Gyro Manual
AG61 rectifying gyro is suitable for
fixed wing airplane model with nose landing gear. The gyro controls the steering angle of the steering wheel and to rectify the deviation tendency of the model airplane when it is
taxiing on the ground, and
accurately responds to the rudder
stick steering action, so as to improve the steering stability of the model
airplane when ii is taxiing
at high speed.
The greatest highlight of the AG61
rectifying gyro is that
it uses an intelligent adaptive algorithm,
which eliminates the cumbersome operation of the traditional model gyro
product, such as setting
the sensor direction and adjusting the sensitivity. It only needs one auto config when installing, and does not need adjusting
when using, making
it easy to install and use.
The AG61 rectifying gyro has good
effect of rectifying deviation in taxiing, can be widely used in all kinds of
model airplane which need long-distance taxi takeoff and landing, such as the use of Electric Ducted
Fan (EDF) and Jet power scale model airplane and so on.
*1 If the model airplane does not use the retractable landing gear, the Gear In and Gear Out may not be connected.
*2 The Turing Servo jack can only be plugged into the front wheel steering servo. Do not connect the rudder servo to this jack. Otherwise, the model airplane will not operate properly in the air!
The AG61 rectifying gyro supports a
six-direction installation that allows the bottom surface of the gyro to be installed parallel to the bottom plane of the model airplane (gyro label face up or down), it is also
possible to have any one of the four
arrows on the gyro label mounted perpendicular to the bottom plane of the model airplane. Use a
double-sided adhesive to secure the gyro onto the model plane. And gyros should not be installed
very close to the motor or engine.
Setting Steering Wheel Direction
After the installation of the
AG61 rectifying gyro connection, power on the model airplane,
put down landing gear. The
gyro blue LED flashes quick, indicating that the gyro is being initialized. At this time, do not move the model
airplane, do not move the transmitter slick
ether. After the gyro initialization is complete, the blue LED is on or short
flash. When the blue LED is on, move
transmitter rudder slick to check whether the front steering wheel is moving in the right direction. That is, when the rudder stick is moved to the
left, the front steering wheel should
rotate to the left. If not, reverse the rudder channel on
the transmitter. Note that if the
blue LED flash short after the gyro is initialized, and the steering wheel does not rotate when the transmitter rudder
slick is moved, it means that the gyro thinks that the landing gear has been retracted. This requires the gyro to
perform the auto config function once
(See the next section), so
that the gyro correctly recognizes the gear signal and then sets the direction
of the steering wheel.
The new installation connection completes or adjusts the
installation direction, and adjusts
the direction of the rudder channel or the direction of the gear channel, all
of which must have the AG61
rectifying gyro perform an auto config function, in order to make the gyro run correctly.
Power on the model airplane, put down
landing gear, and keep the model
airplane horizontal. Then within one minute after the
initialization of the AG61 rectifying gyro is
completed, the rudder stick is
quickly move to the left end and right end, 5 or more times each (10 or more times in total), and
finally, the rudder stick stops at the left
end. Hold still, the gyro blue

starting auto config. Note that the auto config function will be disable
after one minute the gyro is
If the auto config does not start
after the correct operation according to the above method, please temporarily increase the transmitter rudder
channel's ATV to 100%, and then auto
config again. After the auto config is completed, restore the original setting
of the transmitter rudder
After the gyro blue LED flash 3-5 seconds, the auto config is completed, the
gyro can be used normally. If the gyro
blue LED always flash and
the auto config cannot be completed,
please check if the model airplane is horizontally placed, or if the
gyro is correctly installed according to the installation direction described in
the previous installation section.

* When power on initialization, if the blue LED is always flash quick and the initialization
cannot be completed, please check whether
the model airplane was vibrate,
whether the transmitter is on, whether the transmitter rudder stick is in the neutral position, and whether the receiver signal good, whether
the gyro turning signal plug is properly connected
to the receiver.
When you tilt or flip the model
airplane over 40°, the AG61
rectifying gyro will disable the
rectifying function after two seconds, so that you can observe and trim the
front steering wheel.
When you retract the landing gear, the AG61 rectifying gyro will immediately disable the rectifying
function; when you put down the landing
gear, the AG61 rectifying gyro will delay 5 seconds
and enable rectifying function.
