So far in this video, we will talk about gero function, installation placement and other related stuff. I’Ll install this quero on one of the cheapest rc drift car, which is wpl d12, but of course you can install it on other rc car. The gero function in rc cars is for automatic steering correction. If front of the car turns right, giro will automatically move. Steering to the left, vice versa, if front of the car turns left, giro will move steering to the right. Conversely, if the tail of the car slides to the left, the gyro will move steering to the left and if the tail slides to the right, the gyro will be steering wheel to the right. Also euro on a drift car will be useful to pre fund car spoon around while drifting. In other words, the gyro will try to fix car position of the car automatically before the car spin are twisted here’s another example. If the giro is off, then i make the rear tire spin. Then i turn the car and let it go. The car will keep spinning like in vicious circle, because the front wheel is do nothing or doesn’t try to fix the car’s position. If the gyro is active, it will do a counter steering automatically or it will try to fix cars position and make it go straight again. As you can see the car coming out of circle without me holding the steering wheel, Applause Music – after that you just need to blade the throttle and the steering a little bit.
Then you already can drift. Can we be drifting without gyro? You can, if you are really good, unlike grief in real cars, we can get feedback directly from the wheels that touch the ground. However, in rc we rely only on our eyes to determine when to counter steer and so on, so installing the g ro will really help you to control angle of the car. If you ever try rc drift and it always spoon out that means it’s time. For you to install the gear roll Applause for your information, stand along zero, even the cheap one works better than giro. That is integrated with the receiver. If you ever try to use integrated gyro and the car wobble too much try to reduce the gear again, if it still wobbles, then you may try to install standalone giro in this video. I will install rbrc brand giro. I guess some company rebranding it with other names, but it looks slim like this. This hero costs about 9 to 12 us dollar, depending where you buy it. In this video i install it on wpld12, but the installation method is more or less same for any rc car as long it uses servo for the steering system. Basically, what you need to do is unplug the servo cable, replace it with gero cable, then block the servo cable to the gyro back to d12. After we remove the body, remove the default electronics remove the servo cable.
But before that remember the cable position take a picture if necessary, now we’ll block the gear roll cable to the electronics, the black red and white cable belongs to the grille notice in some side of the connector we can see the metal part make sure to block The cable same as servo position before or according to this video. If you use separate receiver, then you need to plug the gear roll to the channel one after that we plug the servo cable to the g row, s for signal or yellow cable, plus, red cable, minus brown cable. If we align the giro and the servo cable white, cable pair with yellow cable black with brown and red with red, again make sure you pluck it correctly now the giro placement for v12 people usually put the gyro here. This is the easiest way and you don’t need to modify anything. However, as far as i know, giro works better if we put it on low center gravity or as near as possible to the ground. So i designed the gear holder and 3d print it. This is the result. If you want to download the 3d file. I’Ll put the ring in video description. I drill the zesses for the screw. If you don’t want to do well, then you can glue it or use some other methods. This use m2 screw when drilling be careful with the battery cable and it doesn’t stop there. It turns out that this gear cable is really short.
So, with default electronic position, the gravel didn’t reach the gear position. Therefore, i turn back the electronic position, but i need to extend the motor cable attach the gyro using double sided tape, not finished. Yet if we place it here, we need to make a hole in the deck because of the circle cable, but this hole also useful for adjusting several gain that we will discuss after this anyway, if you use flat model zero, such as yokomo v4, you don’t need To make a hole and also we can adjust the gear sensitivity via rc transmitter. If your transmitter supports it, let’s get back to the previous gear. I will remove the deck for now place. The car on a flat floor turn on the cart and turn on the transmitter. If the gyro light is blinking, it means still calibrating wait for it and don’t do anything if calibration finished. The light will turn bright and steady and it’s ready to play. I use a 3d printed tires if you want the 3d file. I’Ll put the link in description. The rims are also a 3d printed. There are two settings in this chip to hero. The first is normal and reverse settings. Try to move the front of the car. The correct one is: if front goes to the right, the gyro steers will do the left and you can see currently is wrong front body to the right. The gyro also steers to the right.
If this happens, it will make braving experience worse. Therefore, we switch this normal and refer settings we test again and now it works as it should be from body to the right girl turns left. I use reverse mode, but depending on the gear replacement, you may need to setting it normal, so just check and test it. For yourself gain is for sensitivity. Settings in this hero. If you turn it left, it will be more sensitive. Hero will active even on slight movement contrastly. If you turn it to the right, it will be less sensitive. It will turn off the gear row. If you turn it 100 to the right, you need to adjust sensitivity based on your driving style. There is no one setting for all if it was too much reduce the sensitivity for this rbrc giro. I usually set gain at 60 to 65 active, but again it depends on gear replacement and your driving style. I recommend this hero because it works really well. In my opinion, the movement is fairly smooth and quite responsive. If you look at the video – and it looks, the driving is not so beautiful it’s, because just of my lack of skill when i use ufo morphe for giro, that is seven times more expensive than this cheap hero, it’s improved a bit, but not that much so The user’s skill is more important. My point is this: hero is sufficient for beginner or, if you just want to have fun in your home in this pandemic time, Applause, Music, Applause, Music.
For brief training, you can place three wheels or any objects with enough distance. Then you make a small circle around the wheel, then make a bigger circle by moving to the next wheels. Just for your information, we already made a video about how to upgrade wpl d12 into brussels system link is in video description. My final conclusion is: i recommend this rbrc giro, because it’s cheap and do its job pretty well.
