Compass instead of Gyro

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I was just wondering if it would be possable to use a compass module to contol the tail of my heli ? It should hold heading for ever !

Any comments ?

If you do not allow the heli to roll or pitch fore/aft, then you are good to go. However, the moment you are no longer parallel with earth, or nearly so, the compass errors will result in a tail control system that is ineffective.

In other words, nothing beats the simplicity of a good heading hold gyro. :)
