you want to build an RC ornithopter, and use servos to flap
the wings? Now you don't have to keep moving the stick up
and down to get that flapping motion! The
Axon servo controller goes in between the radio receiver and
the servos. It makes the wings start flapping when you simply
increase the throttle. It
also adjusts the wing movement to provide steering.
Axon-1c is designed to work with the cPPM receivers available
The single-wire communication protocol reduces wiring and
Axon-1c weighs only 4.5 grams and has a built-in microprocessor
to generate the wing flapping motion for the RC bird. It uses
independent motion of the left and right wings for steering
and elevator control. There is no need for a steering mechanism
in the tail.
unit features a new bi-axial throttle control. By moving the
throttle stick of your transmitter up and down, you control
the amplitude of the wing flapping. Moving side to side controls
is in contrast with conventional RC ornithopters, where you
can only control the rate of the wing flapping. Being
able to vary the flapping amplitude allows a much smoother
transition between flapping and gliding flight. And when you
cut the throttle, the wings will always stop at a good position
wings are used for steering.

Hitec brushless digital servos are recommended, due to their
high power output and efficiency. Servos must be able to operate
at 7.4 volts and must rotate clockwise with increasing PWM

micro version has a more compact circuit board and lighter
weight of only 3.6 grams. It has an improved throttle-down
feature to protect lithium polymer batteries.
And it looks really sharp.
