Product Description

FrySky has responded to the issues surrounding the stock Taranis gimbal by designing a new gimbal that employs hall effect sensors rather than potentiometers. 

The new gimbal sports a nicely machined aluminium faceplate that is reminiscent of the Horus gimbal. It retains the metal cross bars; the X/Y axes ride on 4 ball bearings and have adjustable spring tensioners and throttle ratchets. The gimbal is designed with crossbar lock outs for both axes, if you need to do a custom setup or setup a gimbal for throttle duty.

The M-9 also has been designed with a hollow stick allowing the use of switched stick ends or some other contrivance of joyful convenience.

 The gimbals are plug and play, no need to cut wires and add or change plugs. 

 

Specifications:

  • Supply Voltage: DC 3.0~±0.5V
  • Sensitivity: 2.50mV/G
  • Linear Output Voltage Range: 0.1~(VCC +0.1)V
  • Quiescent Output (TA=25°C, B=0G): 0.5 x VCC
  • Noise (no load): ≤ 40 mVpp

Features:

  • High Sensitivity Hall sensors
  • 4 ball-bearings
  • Adjustable tension
  • Enable / disable centering on both axes and ratcheting on the Y axis

  1. Taranis Hall-Effect Gimbal Upgrade 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Oct 2017

    This gimbal upgrade provides an easy, inexpensive means to replace the stock gimbals with higher quality, ball bearing, Hall-effect equivalents. Although the stock Taranis gimbals are not bad, the upgrade are nicer and they replace the conventional potentiometers with Hall-effect sensors.

    Greek to you? The Hall-effect sensor eliminates the traditional potentiometer (variable resistor) that can result in loss of accuracy, dead spots, and loss of centering over time, even with a Cermet substrate. A potentiometer consists of delicate fingers that slide on a resistive surface to provide the position information to the radio's microcontroller when the stick is moved. A Hall-effect sensor "reads" the angular displacement of a magnetic field, again which changes when the stick if moved. The Hall-effect sensor has no moving parts, so it doesn't exhibit dead spots or appreciable loss of accuracy over time.

    The gimbals install easily and they're a "plug and play" install. The gimbal comes with the centering mechanism in-place on both axis, so you'll need to remove the centering mechanism on the throttle/flap stick during the install. There are zero instructions with the gimbal, thus the four stars. Disabling the centering mechanism involves simply removing the single dowel pin that is easily done with a pair of hemostats. Grip the small dowel pin and rotate it while carefully pulling it away from the gimbal housing. You only need to remove the dowel pin from the throttle/flag axis. Leave the other axis alone.

    There are two gimbal mechanical resistance adjustments relative to the throttle/flap axis. If you are adjusting for throttle and you like the "detent" or click feel then tighten the screw that adjusts the steel band positioned over the toothed mechanism. If you are adjusting for flaps and don't like the "detent" feel, then loosen the screw. The second screw that is adjacent to the first screw allows you to adjust the resistance or smooth drag of the throttle/flap stick. Tighten this screw applies more resistance to stick movement.

    When you are happy with the feel of the gimbals, then make sure to re-calibrate the gimbals before calling it quits.
