Is Pitlab the best OSD autopilot for FPV?
Over time I have used many Autopilot and OSD systems. Some more powerful, some cheaper, others more reliable or easier to use.
They all had something, but when we talk about a system for Long Range FPV (or Long Range)Pitlab wins by a landslide in my opinion.
And why do I say that he wins by a landslide?
Because when we talk about long-range FPV, price is no longer the main obstacle (although Pitlab has a good price), and there are a number of features that become indispensable.
These are some of the characteristics why I think Pitlab is the best Autopilot for Long Range:
- Your ILS (Instrumental Landing System) on screen
- The automatic landing function on the selected runway
- Self-take off
- 10 routes with 127 segments each (Waypoints)
- "Mountains mode" to avoid high obstacles
- Wind assistant
- Thermal assistant
- Wide variety of special RTH options (Return To Home or Vuelta a Casa, for when all else fails)
Pitlab analysis on video
Some time ago I prepared a video with a unboxing of the Pitlab. Although it is a short video, which only includes the main functionalities, I think it is interesting to quickly get an idea of what it is capable of.
As a bonus, the video does not only include the autopilot, but also the Ground Station, or ground station, which allows you to track the plane in real time from the ground.
I can assure you that many of the flights I have done, I would not have done without the Pitlab. He has always given me a lot of peace of mind and has taken the chestnuts out of the fire several times.
In Myself Youtube channel You can see some additional videos about this fantastic autopilot.
Do not forget subscribe because soon I will upload more videos and write more articles about Pitlab in particular and model aircraft in general.
