Enter the serial number:. The new firmware update V2. The user manual V1. After installing the gyro, the servos will move more frequently than before, it is highly recommended that a reliable UBEC or ESC be used to provide sufficient working current for the servos on the plane, otherwise the gyro may become unstable by an occasional voltage drop.

You just need to simply plug it into any open slot of the gyro or the receiver. A3L Supports 3 flight modes, you can switch between them using a 3-way switch on the transmitter.
But if you are using a 2-way switch instead then you can only use 2 of them during flight. The color of the LED shows you that the flight mode currently selected, as shown below.
Normal mode is the most basic application of the gyro. In this mode, the gyro will sense angular velocity on each axis and make a momentary reaction. The normal mode is suitable for all types of fixed-wings, it can effectively improve the stability of your plane specially on a windy day. Choose this mode to disable the gyros for all channels. The plane will be completely under the control of the radio. The plane will go back to its previous performance when operating it in this mode.
Usually it is only used to test. The AVCS mode is an advanced application of the gyro.
By adding an integral algorithm to the gyros, the controller will try to lock the plane to its previous attitude if there is no command sent from the transmitter in a flight. This mode can effectively help you to accomplish such hard actions as hover and knife edge. But this mode is designed especially for the 3D planes, it's not suitable for the planes those not designed for 3D flight. A3-L User Manual V1.
The new A3 series provides 5-channel inputs and 3-channel outputs. You only need to connect the receiver and servos to the corresponding pins on the side of the gyro.
The knobs are used to adjust the gain for each flight mode, clockwise for increase, anticlockwise for decrease. Futaba's S. Bus and S. Bus 2 are supported by new A3 series now. The aileron, elevator and rudder should be always connected or it could not work. The MOD is used for flight mode control, if you don't connect it the flight mode will be set to normal as the default.
The GAIN is used to adjust the master gain remotely. Wiring is as shown in the figure below. The Futaba's S. Bus 2 is also supported by A3. Because the S.

Bus is a single-line solution all channels are transmitted via one single line you need to establish the first 6 channels in the correct order in your transmitter before use.
Here we use a RSB receiver as an example because it supports both S. Bus 2. You need to change the mode for the RSB before using its S. Bus outputs, please refer to the manual of it.
The gyro must be firmly mounted on the platform of the airframe by using the provided double-sided tape, as close to the CG as possible.
The gyro can be attached flat or upright.
However, the servo connector pins must always point toward the rear of the plane the shorter side with the setting button must always point toward the heading direction. There're 4 mounting orientations supported, as shown below. N stands for the number of the setting function.
When you reach the function that you wish to operate in, quickly press the button once short press to enter it. After entering a function, the color of the LED shows you the settings currently selected.
Each short press of the button advances the option to the next value.
When you finish making your selections, just wait for 5 seconds then system will save the modified and back to the setting menu automatically. The colors corresponding to the options for each parameter are as shown in the chart above. A3-L will perform a stick centering automatically every time it starts, so a manual centering is no longer needed.
You just need to keep all the sticks except for the throttle in their middle position before power on the gyro, and don't move them while initializing. If the servos drift to one side slowly when switching to 3D mode, you can easily perform a centering by fast toggling the mode switch twice within 1 sec, it has the same effect as if you restart it. Clockwise for increase, anticlockwise for decrease.
The gain is affected by many factors there is no standard answer to that how much it should be. You need to fine-tune to get the best result during flights. We suggest you always start with a lower volume for the first flight and then increase it gradually. The GAIN is used to control the master gain remotely.
You can make a linear adjustment by using a knob or slider on your transmitter, or make a 3-level gain control using a 3-way switch. The master gain is just an optional channel that the gyro can still work properly without connecting this channel. All Rights Reserved. Better performance with the latest firmware V2. Standard wing type, Delta-wing and V-tail.
