Radio Gear Stuff
In this section there will from time to time be info on what is happening in the world of radio control systems that are used to control the models.
I will kick off this section with just some simple comments on what I have recently been trying.
Earlier this year I took a calculated risk and
bought a couple of JR synthesised receivers to use with my Hitec Optic 6
and Hitec Eclipse 7 transmitters equipped with Spectra modules to try
out and see if they really did make life at the poolside easier by eliminating
channel conflicts. To date they have worked very well with no range or control
Enter the Multiplex Cockpit SX fully
synthesized radio system. This is an elegant radio both in operation and design.
No modules to remove and refit in order to change frequency. Just press a dial
and select the frequency you want. Then just tune the receiver to the selected
frequency. It is also the only FM TX that I have never had to pull apart in
order to remove the left sail trim stick self-centering operation. Just an
accessible from outside the back of the case does the trick. No springs to
remove using only clumsy fingers, tweezers, long nosed pliers, etc., etc. It is slimmer in design than
either of the two radio's mentioned earlier, making it easier to hold. It is
simply elegant. Almost a work of art one might say. I do love beautiful things.
