Looks like it works good on the ground, why don't you take it out and fly it.

Too cold and too windy, now.
I hope to fly it soon.

Electric - The future of Old Time Stunt

If I may.  In the video, the motor changes RPM much too slow.  The corner would be done by the time the motor ramps up in speed, etc.  I would expect much, much faster response.

The "response time" can be set with the programming box.
It is not perfect, now.
I still have to work on it.

That looks weird.  It changes RPM with orientation not load.  I thought the plan was to get constant RPM with changing load.   Stir the pot

No, the plan was to get constant speed with changing position.

Doesn't look like it could work with that setting.  As Crist has mentioned.. it is responding way too slow.  and also the rpm range is too extreme on acceleration and deceleration. What ESC are you using?

I used the extreme settings, deliberately.
I can set it very differently.
It works with any type of esc, appropriately changing the setting.
However I'm not going to sell it.
I thought, when it is ready to publish the schematics and programming code.
If you do not care, it's not a problem.

 Words of encouragement. That's all. The man seemed to want to fold up his tent.

  Chris:
Oh, and one more thing... He lives in a country rich with a history of  thinkers and tinkerers. 
On a personal note : All  four of my grandparents emigrated from Italy between 1901-1905.
They never gave up on any task. Same with their children.

 I would encourage him the same even if he came from another country.

OK, I didn't understand.  I would offer encouragement too!

Wow!  I saw the initial post and thought I understood but now that I see what you were going for, it really makes good sense.  Allow me to congratulate you on your accomplishment.  I really do like what I'm seeing.  Awesome!!  Hoff Grin

Thanks Jim, but I can do even better.
This is the timer and the programming box now.
I'm still developing the timer.

hhhhmmmmmmm   I like the way it manages the throttle (if you will) during the testing and flight videos.

very reminiscent of my F3A days back in the 90's.

Acts pretty much the same way as  my left thumb on the throttle.

I like it.

Andrea, when you finally get it ready, I would love to try it on my planes.

Thanks

I really like that selectivity a person can select from your chart there.

Very versatile to me which is great.   Hoff

The goal is to make a timer that works with any type of ESC, even without a governor.
