Product Features

  • Fully compatible with Spektrum DSMX / DSM2 protocols
  • Integrated 5A brushed electronic speed control (ESC) for trouble free operation of high performance coreless motors.
  • Brushless ESC option – ability to attach stand alone brushless ESCs
  • Gyro Stabilization! with remote on/off control via gear channel-5
  • Ability to rapidly configure for delta, fixed wing and V-tail mixing
  • 3-Channel Legacy mode!, for proper control of Rudder/Elevator/Throttle (RET) models usings single control stick.
  • Dual aileron ports to connect additional servos, for conventional 4-channel fixed wing models
  • Ability to remotely adjust gain control on AUX3 (requires a transmitter with 8-channel or more)
  • Awesome Servo swap feature! The rudder and elevator servo assigned positions are exchangeable directly on the board
  • Intended for 1S LiPo application.  2S LiPo (8.4V) operation is possible when using the dual on-board servos. (Note: that the external servo over JST 1.0mm connection may not be able to work at 8.4V)
  • Servos feature exceptional holding torque! with approximately 0.10kg*10mm with 4.2V and 0.13kg * 10mm with 8.2V.

This product has been tested to ensure reliability and compatibility with Spektrum’s DSMX and or DSM2 transmitter products. This is not a copy or rebranding of a Spektrum DSMX or DSM2 product. Spektrum, DSMX and DSM2 are registered trademarks of Horizon Hobby, Inc.

Setup Instructions

Binding
Press and hold button prior to power on for binding. The small receiver board flashing at the back indicates the microBRIC+ is ready for binding.

Flight Mode Indicator
When power is provided the LEDs on the microBRIC+ will flash multiple times in sequence. Below is the sequence of flashing that indicates various settings:

  1. Gyro calibration indication (red = fail, green = OK)
  2. Wing mode
  3. Dual aileron (if set)
  4. Servo swap (if set)

Stabilization
Stabilization can be set on gear channel by toggling between +100% to -100% to enable or disable stabilization. Aileron, elevator and rudder gain can be set accordingly via the on-board pots. The optional AUX3 master gain control is made available automatically if AUX3 is available. It is recommended to set AUX3 gain at mid-point initially before tuning the 3 pots to ensure AUX3 allows tuning of the model aircraft dynamically by rotating the knob from mid-point. Rotate model to observe and predict if appropriate gain is adjusted correctly as well as corrective action direction is set. The red/green LED indicator indicates stabilization mode. Red and green on means no stabilization. Green on means stabilization is activated.

Stabilizer corrective direction and wing mode
Delta, fixed wing and V-tail can be set while dual aileron option is available such that the aileron and AUX1 are both used for aileron control. Below diagram shows servo function with the wing type chosen. If Spektrum transmitter is used, the model should be reset in the transmitter menu before following the instruction below for Accessing the corrective direction and wing mode menu via push of the button for setting changes.

Note: In the examples below LED’s A E and R describe the condition, the bolded letter indicates the flashing LED.

A E R – Hold button for just over 1 seconds causes “A” LED to flash. Release now and the other 2 LEDs will be flashing for the next 5 seconds indicating user may change aileron corrective direction during this time by pressing the button. The set result will be reflected on LED with solid blue or off. When the other 2 LEDs stop flashing, stabilizer will resume to its normal operation.

A E R – Hold button for just over 3 seconds causes “E” LED to flash. The remaining step is identical to the above for setting the elevator corrective direction.

A E R – Hold button for just over 5 seconds causes “R” LED to flash. The remaining step is identical to the above for setting the rudder corrective direction.

A E R – Hold button for just over 7 seconds causes all LEDs off. Button should be released at this point to exit operation or continue to hold for next setting.

A E R – Hold button for just over 10 seconds causes all 3 LEDs to flash. Release now and any one of the LED will be in solid blue. User has 5 seconds to change wing mode. Starting from left to right the LEDs are for “Fixed Wing”, “V-Tail”, “Delta” as well as the “Legacy” mode with the last 2 LEDs on. Legacy mode means rudder and aileron channel swapped. Press briefly to change any one of the mode within 5 seconds. For example, the left LED is currently on. If user briefly press button, middle LED will be on indicating wing mode is now set for “V=Tail”

(Note that legacy mode allows single control stick for controlling the plane’s flight that’s favoured by many experienced modelers found in many legacy transmitter decades ago.)

A E R – Hold button for just over 18 seconds causes the two furthest apart LEDs (“A” and “R”) to flash. Release now and the centre LED will be flashing while the 2 LEDs beside the centre one will indicate dual aileron as on and vesa versa. User has 5 seconds to change aileron mode. Press briefly to allow dual aileron or single aileron within 5 seconds. User should set dual aileron for wing type in Spektrum transmitter for dual aileron setting.

Servo Swap Function
Swapping both servos are sometimes required due to mechanical setup of the plane. Servo swap menu can be accessed by pressing the bind button before power on and continue to press it for 10 seconds. Ignore bind indication and wait for the “A” LED to flash. Release button now with aileron & rudder LED flashing means the microBRIC+ is in servo swap menu. The user now only has 3 seconds to enable or disable servo swap by briefly pressing the button. When the Aileron LED is illuminated, this indicates that the servo swap has been enabled and vice versa.

After 3 seconds the microBRIC+ exit servo swap menu while the receiver board LED will still be flashing indicating ready for bind. Ignore this bind indication at and turn off power at this point to complete the procedure.

Installation

Use the provided screws and plastic mounting cradle to carefully mount the microBRIC+ within your model. Be exceedingly careful that you do not exert force on the small microprocessor board at the back of the stabilizer, as this can damage the receiver board and cause the unit to malfunction. DO NOT USE GLUE TO INSTALL THIS BOARD and do not use adhesive tapes in this installation if you wish to later move the unit to another model, instead use the provided screws and cradle mount that shipped with your microBRIC+.
