The RDS functionally is exactly like the RD in all respects except for the transmitting frequency. Namely improving the 3-charcter display for naming models, changing the Trainer button to a switch, adding rudder and expo control to the rudder channel, and putting a larger battery in the transmitter.
This is vary useful and vary convenient when one of your models only requires some features. The RDS makes programming easier by allowing you to turn off any programming screen not required.
STW – Stopwatch The RDS offers a built-in timer and allows the pilot to use the stopwatch function in either elapsed time or countdown mode. Back airtrlnics the RDS STW Stopwatch – Used as a stopwatch or to countdown to a preset time. Helicopter, fixed wing aircraft and sailplane pilots will all benefit when using the standard features of the RDS I have never experienced any problems with Airtronics equipment and I have a lot of it, including receivers, servos, switches and batteries.
The receiver handled all control inputs quickly and servos and I had fantastic control over the plane. Gone is the long antenna that needed to be extended while the radio is in use. As I will describe later in this review, these antennas need to be installed so that they are positioned 90 degrees to each other to provide better signal pickup.
The most important aspect that this brings to the table is the fact that Spread Spectrum radios can be operated in the presence of other radios without the risk of interference.
This function is most commonly used for rds80000 models where deploying flaps or flaperonswith elevator control can make for tighter corners on maneuvers such as the square loop.
A common mix would be Aileron to Rudder to achieve coordinated turns without moving the rudder stick.
CLK – Click The RDS transmitter normally is set to emit an audio tone when ever the programming keys are pressed, when values are changed and when the stop watch function is started, stopped or reaches the final ten seconds of countdown.
Under each channel the options for that channel are laid out in order.
These functions are identical to those in the Aero Mode even though this is for heli functions. The weight of the receiver is quite low 0. To use or modify one of the model setups you first must select M-SL in the etc menu. Some of the most notable changes have been adding more than one channel, reed control, fully proportional control, FM signal, narrow band frequency selection, and full digital signals.
Both ailerons will act as spoilers as the throttle stick is used.

Options On or Aurtronics. Airtronics has obviously set airtroncis goal to provide their usual high quality products adapted to the latest technology to produce what could be an industry leading radio.
On older radios the range check was performed by walking about 30 paces away from the plane and lowering the antenna, but of course that is not possible on a 2. And that is that. I find this very limiting and at times a bit aairtronics.
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. I learned to fly on an Airtronics radio and have used them for the majority of the last 12 years. 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.
The transmitter cannot control the receiver until the binding process has been accomplished. Now with those small gripes out of the way let’s talk about what I liked about the radio. While aitrronics down the BIND key on the receiver turn the receiver on. This button is a weak spot, which I really felt could be better. I rdd8000 wait to get home and open up my “present” and play with it.
I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see more manufacturers doing the same in the years to come. This means that the receiver for this radio has only one unit which fds8000 two antenna leads that need to be placed 90 degrees to each other to provide the signal diversity needed for these radios.
This knowledge of the planes allows me to know what the product being reviewed adds to, or subtracts from, the plane.
EXP Exponential – Changes the linear movement of the servo to the relation of the stick movement. Gone is all of the chrome that “decorated” the outside of the older RD The radio worked flawlessly with no issues.
And indeed, when everything is removed you will find the RDS Transmitter, 2.
The simple structure of the programming menus on the RDS are very intuitive and make it easy to quickly setup even the most complicated plane setups.
Currently Airtronics manial offering only the one 8-channel receiver. This plane has become a bit of a test bed for reviews such as this because it’s one of my favorite planes and therefore I know very well how it handles.
But the latest advance in our equipment almost overshadows all of those previous changes combined. Left and Right Ailerons are adjustable CR: NAM – Name The RDS provides the capability for you to designate each of the 10 models you have programmed by use of a 3 digit name.
Normally when you drop the flaps on a aircraft it will start to climb. The manual also has a few “extras” that I thought were very nice touches. On the face of the radio the manusl most switch is set to the Aux 2 channel which is programmable in the radio.
It comes with an 8-channel receiver, charger and switch harness.

INT – Integral Timer The Airtromics Timer function of the RDS is activated each time the transmitter power switch is turned on, and continues to time up to 99 hours and 59 seconds at all times when the transmitter is turned on. Navigating the menu is fds8000 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.
Airtronics has taken airtronocs time to create a radio system that will appeal to a large group of pilots, but has kept the price at a level that the wallet is sure to like. While you do have a full range of numbers, special symbols and the alphabet in both upper and lower case, you still have only a three-character model name.
