Thread: FPV RACING WHICH MODE ?

  1. #1

    FPV RACING WHICH MODE ?

    ARE MOST FPV RACERS FLYING FREE FLIGHT OR HORIZON MODE OR WHAT ?
    HAVING FUN IN MY YARD WITH A RACER BOUGHT AT SEFF AND DID ATTEND THE FPV RACE AT THE PECAN PATCH
    BUT I WAS NOT FAR ENOUGH ALONG TO ASK AN INTELLIGENT QUESTION .
    CAN DO FLIPS IN FREE FLIGHT MODE AND JUST STARTED MESSING WITH AEROBATICS IN HORIZON MODE
    I THANK

    I AM FLYING A FLIP32 BOARD USING CLEANFLIGHT

    LMAO.......Uhhhhhhh just in case anyone missed this subtle point.....the use of capitol letters in a post is considered to be yelling or an angry post. I am sure this was not your intent in asking the question but Xaser hint made me laugh out loud.......funny stuff!

    I used to fly in horizon (MWII or BF), later I switched to pure acro and it is more fun.

    I believe that happymcc once explained that he has to use CAPS... ...I forgot the reason (or it was somebody else).

    ITS CAPTAIN SNOOPY TO YOU
    AND THANKS FOR THE REPLY'S
    I THINK I WILL FLY HORIZON FIRST AND THEN TRY ACRO WHEN I GET A LOT MORE EXPERIENCED
    BUT MY REASON FOR ASKING IS WHEN I SEE GUYS DO AEROBATIC'S WHILE FPV-IN IT SURE LOOKS LIKE THERE IN HORIZON MODE

    THANKS

    It's not, acro only. Horizon mode will not let you flip or roll 360deg, it has only limited angle. There's Angle mode as well (if you using Cleanflight or Baseflight, dunno about MWC) where copter is being stabilized, but it will let you roll or flip 360deg. It might help starting to learn aerobatics before go for acro on bare gyros.
    If you're a noob, copy 1:1 what somebody already flies without too much questions, you'll find the answers later.

    I AM DOING FLIPS IN ALL DIRECTIONS BUT HAVE NOT EVEN TRIED IT IN FORWARD FLIGHT .. I AM SOMEWHAT CONFUSED BY WHAT YOU SAY ABOUT HORIZON AND ANGLE BECAUSE
    I CAN DO FLIPS IN BOTH OF THEM AND MY FRIENDS DO ALL THE TIME IN HORIZON MODE . I JUST DISCOVERED I COULD FLIP IN ANGLE RECENTLY ... IF I START A FLIP IN ANGLE AND
    TURN THE THROTTLE OFF IT DOES A COMPLETE FLIP . SURPRISED ME , I ONLY DISCOVERED THIS BECAUSE I HAD MY MODE SWITCH IN THE WRONG POSITION .. I AM USING CLEANFLIGHT
    AND .80 ON THE RATES . IT WAS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT HORIZON IS A MIXTURE OF ACRO AND ANGLE . BEING THAT YOU HAVE ACRO WHEN YOU MOVE THE STICK AND WHEN YOU LET
    GO YOU GO BACK INTO ANGLE . BUT I HAVE BEEN WRONG BEFORE .

    IF YOU FLIPPING, THEN IT IS IN ANGLE MODE COZ HORIZON MODE DOES NOT LET YOU FLIP. ACC IN HORIZON MODE LETS THE COPTER TO TILT ONLY AT CERTAIN PREDETERMINED ANGLE MAX AND NO FURTHER (sorry, couldn't put a smiley in capitol letters)
