On the face of the radio the inner most switch is set to the Aux 2 channel which airtrojics programmable in the radio. The weight of the receiver is quite low 0.

Basic programming gives you the basic features included in the RDS It has enough flexibility to appeal to even the most advanced pilots, yet it’s programming is simple enough for any pilot, even those just starting out, to figure out. I like this feature, as rds80000 is a dedicated control that doesn’t have to be programmed. REV Reverse – Reverses the servo operating direction. I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see more manufacturers doing the same in the years to come.

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. When the box is removed the foam-packing container will be a little “empty”. The programming matrix for the radio is set up in such a way that it can aidtronics navigated without consulting a manual.

Turn on the transmitter.

The transmitter and receiver will be bound together when they are received so performing the binding process should not need to be done on a new radio system. Gone is the long antenna that needed to be extended while the radio is in use. It comes with an 8-channel receiver, charger and switch harness. The Bind LED will flash slowly. With this function the entire set of control parameters for one aircraft can be copied from one model set-up into another.


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.

A control check was made to ensure all control throws were properly set and then she was away. The RDS makes programming easier by allowing you to turn off any programming screen not required.

Use Channel 1 ajrtronics your left elevator and use channel 7 for your right elevator. The transmitter cannot control the receiver until the binding process has been accomplished. You will be using Channels 1 and 7 on the receiver to use this feature.

Many radios out there these days will get labeled as a certain type of radio simply because of the servos that are included with it. When the item you desire to change is located use the “Inc” and “Dec” buttons to change the settings for that item. The transmitter is a dual-stick radio that can be set for either Mode 1 or Airtgonics 2 operation.

On older radios the range check was performed by walking about 30 paces away from the plane and lowering the antenna, but manuak course that is not possible on a 2.

And when testing a new technology like this I guess that is about the best thing that can be said. Currently Airtronics only has one receiver available for the RDSwhich is the receiver.



I have to confess that I have been manuxl “Airtronics Man” from the start. Newsletters Archive. The receiver can be used with any standard servos on the market, although using Futaba servos will require shaving off the alignment tab located on the servo plug. After I was in the air I did have to make some slight adjustments to bring the plane into a hands-off trim condition. For those who aiirtronics dealt with a 2. I fired the plane up and taxied out to the runway. CNT Center – Changes servo neutral position.

The RDS includes a procedure to reduce the power on the radio in order to perform a range check. With my previous Airtronics radios with the same naming limitations I have resorted to making “crib notes” to keep track of which plane is assigned in the radio, and then I keep this in my flight box.

The only consideration that needs to be followed when mounting these antennas is that they need to be placed so that they are oriented 90 degrees from each other.

The only noticeable difference between maunal two, of course, is the antenna on the old 72 Mhz radio is missing in the second picture because the RDS 2. A smaller park flyer receiver is scheduled to come out soon.
