Landtastic - How versatile is it ?

Recommended Posts

Could it be used to operate a speed controller via a switch to give a soft start effect ? Controling the increase of motor speed would only be required at startup and it could operate at normal speed during power down.

I suspect it would work. Basically, it should do fine anywhere you need a servo-slow. Keep in mind that ESC ramp up and ramp down would both be slowed. So, that might not be ideal. BTW, some folks have used Landtastic to tame unwanted pitching during flap activation. They have reported good success.

FWIW, some ESC's already have a slow start option in them. So, not all ESC's would need an external circuit to do it.

Having slow control over flaps would eliminate programing in elevator compensation, which you never seem to get right anyway - I shall try this one.

I shall lookout for those speed controllers which have built in slow start.

Many thanks for your inspired reply.
