While in the air I noticed that I really liked the airttonics of the radio in my hands. This was due to how the plugs were wired. The last control on this side of the radio is a throttle cut button. I have found that trainer buttons are very uncomfortable and quickly make my fingers, or thumb, cramp up while using them. The purpose of a Compensation Mixer is to allow one transmitter control input to affect two flight functions.
When I first started flying Airtronicsyou could only use Airtronics servos, switches and batteries with Rds800 receivers.
This allows the receiver battery to be charged while in the plane. The height of the sticks can easily be adjusted for the comfort of the user. A short rubber covered antenna is now used. In the middle of the control panel are 4 buttons, which are used to navigate the programming menu as well as change the settings for items within the menus. The Eds8000 makes programming easier by allowing you to turn off any programming screen not required.
One of the key features of the RDS is the ability to use both basic or advanced program menu.
While the stock receiver is quite small Airtronics currently has even smaller receivers in the works. The weight of the receiver is quite low 0.
Airtronics has obviously set their goal to provide their usual high quality products adapted to the latest technology to produce what could be an industry leading radio. The Airtronics manual provides details instructions and diagrams on how to place the antennas so that they are degrees apart. Please note that some screen shots below will say “Aero”.

In this day and age of battery technology having a battery airtronicss has a higher capacity would be a nice touch mnaual can help extend a pilot’s flying at the field. The manual has several suggestions on how meet the degree rule. It gives it a “just get the job done” look! The fear of having two radios on at once, which in the past would result in a crash of the plane, is gone forever now.
Adding some down elevator will help reduce it. Left and Right Ailerons are adjustable CR: STW Stopwatch – Used as a stopwatch or to countdown to a preset time.
AIRTRONICS RDS8000 FHSS Quick Start Manual
The manual separately explains helicopter and airplane programming. I think airtrronics it was a great decision on the part of Airtronics to make a move such as this.
The clear plastic portions are the actual antennas. But this brings up one of my biggest complaints about this radio which actually goes back to the older RD and RD radios.
FCC regulations require that any new 2. I find this very limiting mwnual at times a bit confusing.
The pitch curve for each flight model has five points that can be adjusted to suit your specific needs. At the left side of the control panel is a LED which is used when binding the receiver to the transmitter, and below that is the bind button which is used to place the radio in bind mode.
Airtronics RDS Manual – RC Groups
Moving to the bottom portion of the radio we get to the controls used for programming the radio. So the RDS will be able to suit all of your flying needs with a full line of 2. When the item you desire to change is located use the “Inc” and “Dec” buttons to change the settings for that item. Also included are programming “cheat sheets” that can be used to record the settings for each model that airtornics set up in the airtronis. It can also be used so that the strip ailerons act as flaps and deploy in a downward direction to create both lift and drag.
Whether flying a basic model or one that requires advanced features, the RDS can do it all! Looking at the right side of the radio rdd8000 find 4 controls located above the right stick.
The receiver handled all control inputs quickly and servos and I had fantastic control over the plane. I find this can really come in handy when you “decommission” a plane, but decide to get it back in the air at a later date.
The trainer connection is the standard Airtronics 5-pin connection that has been used for airtroncis years. While they have not rds80000 the first to put out a Spread Spectrum radio, the radio that they did put out is sure to have some heads turning over at “the other brands”. 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.
By making this adjustment with an electronic mixer, the pilot does not have to alter the elevator digital trims each time flaps are used, and thus does not have to re-trim the elevators for normal flight. Navigating the menu is a simple matter of using the directional arrows located on the control panel on the front of the radio to scroll the the various menu options. It took me a total of about 10 minutes to dial in all the settings I needed for this plane.
