Lemon rcvrs
« on: August 22, 2017, 01:35:24 PM »
  I see leading edge has the Lemon rcvrs in now. This is not an advert., just a recommendation. They are in all of my planes but two, and never had a glitch. Gyro system settings are done on the rcvr itself. No having to plug it into a computer. I use the 6 channel versions, as that's all you need for sportflying.
 And the price is right. ;D

I second Gord's comments. I have used Lemons for several years now, no problems. I have a couple of the non-stabilizer very small ones, a number of the original stab version and some of the new Stab Plus. The latter units are nominally 6 channels but can be set up for 7 channels ( you disable stabilization on the original one, but the Plus one can give you the 7 channels without losing stabilization.)

Contrary to what some folks may say, the stab does not "fly the aircraft". It simply lets you fly it better and more often, such as in strong, gusty conditions. Or, if you have a highly sensitive (even approaching unstable) plane, or have something that you hand launch, this is where they can be essential.

The stab versions allow selection of Modes and Master Gains. The Plus also adds Self-levelling.

If anyone wants some help with one of these, ambush me out at the Toyground and we will see what we can do. Please read the user-developed manual, which was written by a Canadian and a New Zealander with considerable input from the community.

Check out the Plus manual (I always have a copy in my flight kit and use it often):

The developer of Lemon products is a fellow in Vancouver and is very supportive of his customers.

Upcoming new Lemon 10-channel Receiver
« Reply #2 on: March 25, 2018, 11:57:05 AM »

The following is from the RCGROUPS thread. John is one of the primary testers of Lemon products - he lives in Australia. The other key person lives near Ottawa. The designer (owner?) of Lemon lives in Vancouver. These are truly global products!

Here is John's note:

I just got an email from Lemon stating they are likely to soon have a telemetry capable StabilizerPLUS, and that it will most likely be 10 channels. There will be 5 header pins on both ends of the telemetry capable stabilizer PLUS to make it narrow. It may possibly be even narrower than the current stabilizer. For the new 10 channel telemetry capable StabilizerPLUS, they are are planning to add RPM sensing to the unit. At the same time they are also likely to have an RPM sensor for combustion engines as an optional accessory. Multiple satellites will be possible with dual satellite port on-board.


As always this is tentative and WWSIWWSI (We will see it when we see it).

It does sound like a product a lot of us have asked for though.

John


PS: Absolutely no idea of when or how much so don't bother asking me.
