The PowerBox iGyro™ SRS is a completely new type of gyro system intended for fixed-wing model aircraft. At the development stage our constant aim was to com-bine maximum versatility with simplicity of operation. The system incorporates a regulatory algorithm specifically developed for fixed-wing models, which causes hardly any alteration in the model’s familiar flying characteristics; at the same time the aeroplane flies much more smoothly and accurately, and is less sensitive to unwanted weather-induced or aerodynamic influences. The need for mixers, such as elevator to rudder or flaps, is eliminated entirely. The iGyro™ exploits the latest servo bus technology to minimise the extremely complex wiring arrangements necessitated by previous gyro systems.
The ability to assign any channel to the gain adjusters makes it possible to set up the desired gyro effect accurately in just one short flight. Independent adjustment of each of the five outputs is possible, enabling the modeller to set up gyro gain and direction of effect precisely. The separate GPS sensor provides a means of obtaining a constant gyro effect over the model’s full speed range, effectively eliminating the problem of over-compensation leading to oscillation in high-speed flight. In version 16 and later the software include a menu-based setup assistant which makes it possible to complete all the settings in just a few minutes
