The Binding process is a simple four-step procedure: Throughout the history of RC flying there have been changes to the radio equipment that has made dramatic and drastic changes in the way we participated in this hobby. I have always liked the reliability of Airtronics radios, and I feel that the servos from Airtronics are some of the best out there these days.


After reliability, the biggest selling point for me with the Airtronics 2. I still have it and it works fine.

The transmitter cannot control the receiver until the binding process has been accomplished. In these aircraft the two airtronisc controls perform both as elevators and as rudders. When the box is opened up I want to give everybody a small warning as many may be shocked with what they find, or more importantly what they won’t find.

I must admit airtrronics at first this was a little shocking for me. This plane has become a bit of a test bed for mmanual such as this because it’s one of my favorite planes and therefore I know very well how it handles. I have to confess that I have been an “Airtronics Man” from the start. The receiver handled all control inputs quickly and servos and I had fantastic control over the plane.


So now pilots can fly with confidence that somebody accidentally turning on a transmitter won’t crash their plane. Aircraft Basic Menu Structure. The antenna of the receiver is two “wires” that extend from the receiver.

Located to the left of the battery compartment is the trainer cord connection, which is used when hooking a buddy box up when training a student to fly. Activating the Daul Elevator feature will automaticly disable your AUX-1 channel 7 switch and will allow channel 7 to be used with the elevator stick.

And that is that. So what makes this so special?

The new 8ch 2. STW Stopwatch – Used as a stopwatch or to countdown to a preset time. The RDS functionally is exactly like the RD in all respects except for the transmitting frequency. Airrronics boards are a thing of the past with this new technology. By using this tubing it makes if very easy to maintain the 90 degrees orientation of each antenna.


The manual includes a description of the procedure needed to change the radio from Mode 2 to Mode 1, or vice versa. The RDS is equipped with a trim tab for the 4 major axis of control on the sticks of the radio, which are throttle, rudder, elevator, and ailerons.

But after that the only real thing I can say about my flight was that nothing happened. This is vary useful and vary convenient when one of your models only requires some features. The purpose of a Compensation Mixer is to allow one transmitter control input to affect two flight functions.

Typical thermal sailplanes require about twice as much of up travel than down travel of their ailerons in order to produce a coordinated turn. The same is true for the receivers.

While the RDS shares the same programming and case from the RD channel radio Airtronics has made one major change to the exterior of the radio. This is something that I have always done on my own in order to keep track of what the radio settings are for a given plane.

This is accomplished by walking approximately 30 paces away from the plane and turning on the transmitter with the Bind button depressed. I range checked the radio with no problems found. The decision to leave servos and a receiver battery out of the included hardware may prove to be something that the industry will follow on.

What I mean is that I grew up in this hobby when you opened up a radio box and everything you needed was in there. I couldn’t wait to get home and open up my “present” and play with it. In this day and age of this hobby there is so much diversity in what pilots are doing.

Moving to the bottom portion of the radio we get to the controls used for programming manuap radio. A top-quality digital radio, the RDS is noted for its ease-of-operation and programming. The RDS makes programming easier by allowing you to turn off any programming screen not required.
