Axon-1b Servo Controller
Now with increased receiver compatibility!
Axon-1b Servo Controller flaps the wings of your Robotic Bird RC
ornithopter. It weighs only 4.7 grams and has a built-in microprocessor
to generate the wing flapping motion for the RC bird. The Axon-1b
uses independent motion of the left and right wings for steering.
It features a glide mode and variable flapping amplitude coupled
Axon-1b reads the throttle, aileron, and elevator signals from your
radio receiver. Then it outputs a new signal to each of the two
servos to control the Robotic Bird. All three channels (throttle,
aileron, and elevator) are expressed in the movement of the two
new version now supports a wider range of radio receivers, including
most 2.4 GHz receivers. It does not support "satellite"
receivers, single-wire protocols, or receivers with micro-connectors.
If you purchased the old version, you can send it for a free upgrade!

Custom Servo Arm
machined aluminum servo arm was designed to attach the wing spar
of the S-1 Robotic
Bird onto Hitec's digital brushless servos. It also will fit any
servo with a standard 25T spline. It has a 0.24" diameter round
ferrule for mounting the hollow carbon wing spars used in the S-1
Robotic Bird. It also has an inside hole that will accept a 1/8
inch solid carbon wing spar, giving you a second option for your
own DIY ornithopter designs.
