Heli-Max 230Si - Altitude Control Management Feature
Heli-Max 230Si - Actual Direction Control Feature
Heli-Max 230Si - Return to Pilot Feature
Heli-Max 230Si - Fail-Safe Feature
Heli-Max 230Si - TAGS-FX Feature
The 230Si Quadcopter with HD Camera from Heli-Max is a 230-sized quadcopter that is designed to provide the maneuverability expected from larger 350-size aircraft but in an intermediate form factor that is a step-up from "palm-sized". It features a removable HD camera that records 720p video at 30 frames per second and takes JPEG still photos at 1280 x 720 resolution. The camera records to microSD/SDHC cards up to 32GB in capacity, and there is a 2GB card included. A USB card reader is also included so you can offload the record of your adventure onto your computer.
This version of the 230Si is ready-ready-to-fly (RTF), meaning a 2.4 GHz transmitter (hand-held radio transmitter) is included and comes pre-bound to the aircraft. It also come mostly assembled, requiring only the installation of the props, battery, and a few small parts before it is ready-to-fly. As with any multi-rotor, pre-flight calibration steps must still be undertaken to ensure proper operation of the flight control system before actually taking to the air.
Altitude Control Management
Offers three hovering modes:
Maximum of 10' hover
Limited Altitude Mode or Altitude Hold Mode
The 230Si is designed to maintain power even if the throttle is briefly
lowered to zero. This is designed to help smooth out altitude
changes if the pilot briefly moves the throttle stick too far down
by mistake. When landing in these modes, always keep in mind
it will take a few seconds for the quad motors to stop rotating
once you lower the throttle to zero
Note: In Normal Mode, the throttle works in a linear fashion and will
stop the motors immediately when the throttle stick reaches zero
Actual Direction Control
Actual Direction Control allows pilots to eliminate control reversal
by pushing a button on the transmitter. This which causes the aircraft to move
in the same direction as the sticks are pressed on the transmitter
Return to Pilot Autopilot Mode
Brings the 230Si back to the pilot by pushing a dedicated button on the transmitter. This feature uses an IR emitter on the transmitter to locate the pilot and therefore requires an unobstructed "line-of-sight"
Automatic Landing Fail Safe
If the signal is lost, the 230Si will hold its altitude briefly, and then descend and power down
TAGS-FX IMU Technology with 3-Axis Motion Sensor
The inertial measurement unit (IMU) features six sensors that provide vital data to the flight computer, helping the aircraft say on course in spite of unwanted movement. Of the six sensors, there are three gyros to tell the flight computer how the aircraft is oriented and three accelerators that sense the rate of change in orientation or movement in a particular direction
Beginner and Expert Modes
Allows you to choose the amount of maneuverability you feel comfortable with relative to the amount of autopilot redundancy the flight controller provides
LED Running Lights
Designed to keep the aircraft visible under low-light conditions and provided visual feedback from the flight control system
