Power and simplicity are the hallmarks of the Graupner GR-10C. Specially engineered with an integrated
flight controller for multicopters, the GR-10C is the little brother of the
GR-18C and is the most advanced 2.4 GHz receiver ever made by Graupner. The
GR-10C is a long-range receiver using the Graupner HoTT protocol to provide
real-time telemetry data of altitude, signal strength receiver voltage and
temperature all to assist you during flight to enhance situational awareness
Set up a multicopter, telemetry thresholds and flight
controller settings easily and wirelessly using any Graupner HoTT radio
transmitter: no computers or programming boxes necessary! Need to make a change to the PID or adjust the
gyro? Simply land and make on-the-spot changes at the field or even in the air
during flight! The GR-10C can be expanded with additional telemetry modules (GPS,
OSD, ESC Telemetry, etc.) for continual improvement of your system’s
reliability and performance.
Racing quads can be installed in minutes, as the GR-10C
comes pre-configured for use and requires no special setups. It also comes with two switching channels to
operate external accessories such as LED lights, cameras, etc.
- Multicopter Mode: Quad X, Quad +, Tri L, Tri R, Acro 3D
- Multicopter Control: Attitude/Rate Mode, Auto Flip Mode
- Support for ONESHOT ESCs
- Ultra-fast gyros and accelerometer sensors for fast and
- Wireless setup of all controller features and functions
- Real-time wireless flight data recording
- Built-in telemetry for signal strength, temperatures and
- Two power-switching channels (S7 – 2A, S8 – 1A)
- Free firmware upgrades with Graupner Firmware Update Studio
- GR-10C Multirotor Flight Controller and Receiver
Pretty darn good!
It is smaller than the standard 30.5x30.5 FC footprint. Plugs are a bit obscure, but found what I needed at the local hobby shop. All the settings really do happen inside my controller!
Run through the calibration sequences from the FT versacopter build video on YouTube. Well worth it since you can and will mount it somewhere weird.
Adding an arm switch, acro mode and auto level mode took about 15 min of instruction manual fumbling but it's all set up now!
I like my motors to idle, upon arming (airmode of sorts) so I lowered channel 1's min to 94%. Voila! Airmode enabled! Tuning isn't as easy as in betaflight or kiss. But not powering down unplugging or lugging laptops around is mighty nice. It's coming around to be a great flight controller for graupner users looking to reduce the clutter and weight. I am probably ordering more for future builds! Would love to find processor specs, easier tuning layout and a more "direct solder-slim stackable" design for the next rendition! Thanks very much for the help, customer service people!
