With the range check completed it was time to fly the plane. I have to confess that I have been an “Airtronics Man” from the start.

I had a talk with Mike Greenshields at Global Hobby distributors for Airtronics and read some posts by Airtronics staff here on RCU and it suddenly became clear as to what they are doing here. The key to how the 2. While holding down the BIND key on the receiver turn the receiver on. This is an 8 channel receiver which measures 1.

On the right side of the panel are four buttons, which are also used to make selections while programming the radio.

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. Moving to the bottom portion of the radio we get to the controls used for programming the radio. 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.


Typical thermal sailplanes require about twice as much of up travel than down travel of their ailerons in order to produce a coordinated turn.

Newsletters Archive. Some problems have been reported by 2. Since this plane has become a test bed of sorts I have all the control throws, dual airtronicx, throttle settings, and other settings all recorded to aid in doing setups such as this.

I think that it was a great decision on the part of Airtronics to make a move such as this. The transmitter and receiver will be bound together when they are aairtronics so performing the binding process should not need to be done on a new radio system. To document the programming of the radio the manual steps through all of the programming and gives a good description of each function.
