Computer Radios for Remote Control Airplanes
Author: Mark Bertuzzi 374-3683

Computer radios are a vast improvement for the R/C model airplane pilot. The advantages of a computer radio are as follows:

1. You can store multiple models, anywhere from six to ten different models. Or you could have one model with three different setup parameters all within the same radio transmitter.
2. There are very good display screens with more information shown than you really require. Remember, we were the first to have heads up display flying. Really, do not look at the screen while flying. Heads up.
3. Even the lower priced six channel radios, now have computer programming capabilities.
4. Features such as Exponential and trim memory will be retained for each model you have programmed into your radio transmitter.
5. There is a vast array of programmable mixes available in the computer radios. Features such as programming in a little opposite Ailerons when you operate the Rudder. If using Flaps, you can program in the appropriate amount of elevator so the airplane does not pitch up or down. It is also possible to use independent aileron servos as ailerons and flaps as well, called flaperons or as spoilers, sometimes referred to as spoilerons; all with the programming in your radio transmitter.
6. Programming of all the features in a computer radio has been simplified and improved over the last few years.
7. The programming is stored and is not erased when you remove your batteries from your transmitter.
