Is Pitlab the best OSD autopilot for FPV?
Over the years I have used many autopilot and OSD systems. Some more powerful, some cheaper, some more reliable or easier to use.
All of them had something, but when we talk about a system for Long Range FPV (or Long Range)In my opinion, Pitlab wins by a landslide.
And why do I say it wins by a landslide?
Because when it comes to real 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 the main obstacle. indispensable.
These are some of the characteristics why I think Pitlab is the best autopilot for Long Range:
- Your ILS (Instrumental Landing System) on the screen
- Automatic landing function on the selected runway
- 10 routes with 127 segments each (Waypoints)
- "Mountain mode" to avoid high obstacles
- Wind assistant
- Thermal Assistant
- A variety of special RTH (Return To Home) options for when all else fails.
Pitlab video analysis
Some time ago I prepared a video with a unboxing of 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 not only includes the autopilot, but also the Ground Stationwhich allows the aircraft to be tracked 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. It has always given me a lot of peace of mind and has helped me out of the fire several times.
In my Youtube channel you can see some additional videos about this fantastic autopilot.
Don't forget to subscribe because soon I will upload more videos and write more articles about Pitlab in particular and aeromodelling in general.
