In a single unit (58mm x 32mm x 13mm), the SK-GPS combines altitude
and position hold, and a “flight floor and ceiling” that works in both
single rotor and multirotor helis, and even inverted! Just like the
SK-720 it’s paired to, the SK-GPS is ideal for any and all RC helicopter
pilots, from absolute beginners to hardcore 3D pilots to commercial
aerial photographers and videographers.
The SK-GPS sets itself apart from its competition through its
versatility. It can be flown slow and smoothly, or at full smack 3D,
even holding altitude and position inverted when you need it to. It can
be flown on essentially any-sized collective pitch heli or quadcopter.
All of this can be flown using the SK-720 and the single module, with
no costly upgrades or excessive wiring with multiple modules. What’s
more, the SK-GPS adds another level to the Sk-720’s flight logging
capabilities – pilots can now plot recorded flights to Google Earth!
The bailout function features two modes – pilots can set the SK-GPS
to bail their heli out when it reaches a set altitude, or to bail out
before the set altitude. The SK-GPS also bails the heli out with the
tail pointed towards the pilot to help with orientation after recovery.
The SK-GPS will also “return to home” when needed, while adding an
extra level of safety by hovering 10 metres (33 feet) above the set
point, allowing the pilot to safely land the heli without risk to
Using the SK-GPS is easy, and uses only one channel from your
receiver – all you need is a transmitter with at least one 2 or 3
position switch and a free channel. You can use up to two two switches,
and each switch can use two of any mode below:
* Position Hold
* Altitude Hold Only
* Rescue Now
* Rescue Hard Floor (auto rescue if it goes below a set altitude)
* Rescue Soft Floor (rescue to prevent it from going below a set altitude)
* Lock Grid (control position on a grid)
* Lock Radial (circle around, away, or towards a point)
* Lock Point (same as Lock Radial, but nose always points in)
* Return Home (up to two home positions / waypoints can be set)
The SK-GPS connects directly to any existing SK-720 via the included
single 4-pin cable. The SK-GPS also features a second 4-pin port for
