HC 3a, 3D, Rigid vs AP2000i
Hi all

I have an AP2000i fitted to my TRex600 and I am quite impressed with its performance. (admittedly, Im not using while I'm learning but on windy days I turn up the gain to about 10-15% and it really helps.)

What I'm wondering, in terms of performance helping a learner with hovering and basic manoeuvering, is there a noticable difference between the HC range listed above and the AP2000i?

Anyone out there in cyberland tried both and care to give an opinion?

All those HC system are similar. 3A is the basic model that only does correction when the heli upright. 3D can recover even if you are upside down (given the fact that you have enough altitude). Rigid does all these plus it supports flybarless system.

AP2000i uses different method for stabilization. It has limitations when is it close to buildings, structures. You may have problem at dawn and dusk because it uses infrared sensors that are sensitive to temperature changes.
HC (I never used one) supposedly works at any environment at any time of the day once its set up correctly.

None of these units provide complete stabilization. They help and they are very affordable...

Use the search function here and you will find tons of info about them...

Thanks for the info...

I've read everything I can find but I was really looking for someone who has used both and could offer their experiences with them.

The literature always reads well but real experience often differs a little at best
