F3K and F5J programs with Lua scripts
(0 votes)

The F3K program provides the following features:

  • Timing and score keeping for all of the official FAI F3K tasks.
  • Scores can be saved to the SD card and viewed later. That way, you can fly a self-timed contest and record scores on paper afterwards.
  • Graphing of telemetry log data. You can view e.g. receiver battery volts, RSSI signal strength and, if you have an altimeter, altitude and vertical speed.
  • Controls and mixes: flaps, camber control, ailerons, aileron differential, aileron-to-rudder, snap flaps, flap-to-elevator, and flight modes.
  • Zoom flight mode is entered after the Launch mode, to facilitate a straight climb-out.
  • Flaps are disabled at launch, and remain disabled until the throttle stick is pushed forward, for quick turnaround.
  • Optimal usage of the flaperon servo range by having full flaps be 100% servo down, and aileron up without flaps and camber be 100% servo up.
  • Full aileron control at any flap position by reducing flaps, if needed to allow for the desired aileron response.
  • Camber preset for each flight mode is adjusted with the throttle trim button.
  • Mixes for snap flap, flap-to-elevator, aileron differential, and aileron-to-rudder can easily be adjusted with trim buttons.
  • Flaperon travel can be adjusted on five-point curves, and the curves can be easily adjusted with the aileron trim button at each of the five points, to get perfect alignment of the flaperons.
  • Channels can easily be moved around, and servo directions, centering, and end points set with the channel configurator.

The F5J program for electric gliders comes with powerful configuration features, making setup of a new model quick and easy. It also provides timing and score keeping, as well as graphing of telemetry data.

  • Air brake responses for flaps and ailerons can be set arbitrarily with 5-point curves, so e.g. flaps or crow can be configured.
  • Mixes for power-to-elevator, aileron differential, aileron-to-rudder, flap-to-elevator, and snap-flap.
  • Camber preset for the current flight mode is set by the throttle trim. With the motor on, camber preset is reduced with increasing power.
  • Full aileron response is available for any air brake position, as ailerons on both sides are “bumped” up or down, if necessary.
  • Controls can easily be re-assigned to meet personal preferences. By default, the throttle stick is used for both motor and air brakes, but either can be re-assigned to e.g. a slider.
  • Switches are each set up on a single logical switch line each, and can therefore easily be changed.
  • Everything, including channel assignment, servo directions, centering, end points, mixes, and 5-point curves for air brakes and servo outputs for flaps and ailerons, can be configured easily in five sub-menus, where the trim buttons are used to adjust the various parameters.
  • Timing and electronic score card for F5J contests. For launch height, you can use telemetry values (for practice and informal contests) or you can enter the value from an official unit like CamF5J or Altis. Scores are saved to the SD card, and can be recalled later.
  • Graphing of telemetry log data. You can view receiver battery volts, RSSI signal strength and, if you have an altimeter, altitude and vertical speed.
