Aileron Differential: Why it’s so important and how to set it up

May 02, 2014 8 Comments by

For years, depending on the model setup, modelers often used offset servo output arms and bellcranks to achieve differential aileron movement. Today, however, using separate aileron servos and the aileron differential program menu in your computer radio has greatly simplified the task. But before we take a closer look, let’s first check out the mechanics [...]

Aileron Differential – how to use it

Sep 11, 2013 3 Comments by

For years, before the advent of computer radios, modelers often used offset servo output arms and bellcranks to achieve differential aileron movement. Today, by plugging in the aileron servos to different channels and using the aileron differential program menu in your computer radio,  you can  greatly simplify the setup task for this. But how do [...]

2.4GHz: is it all it’s cracked up to be? Join the discussion

May 30, 2011 15 Comments

We recently received this intruiging article from Dave Horvath and invite you to read it and then join in the discussion.   A substantial number of unexplained crashes of radio control model airplanes on 2.4GHz frequency prompted me to write this article on the so-called “interference free” radio control systems on the 2.4GHz band.             [...]
