Even though this training video's content is focused on 2.4 radio applications for sailplanes and gliders, this video is perfect for anyone interested in quickly learning the basics of all 2.4 digital radio systems and how to run and install them properly in a variety of aircraft including those with carbon composite construction. This program is also available as a digital video download click here.
2.4 Ghz. digital radio systems have been out for a few years now but there is still a tremendous amount of misunderstanding of how these radios work and how to install and run them properly. These new radios require proper installations, antenna placement, require lots of power, and careful range checking to work properly. This is not like FM, where you can chuck a receiver and a 5 year old niCd pack in the fuselage and go flying. These new digital radios are the future and offer lots advantages over the old systems and this comprehensive 2 hour training video will teach you all you need to know to be able use 2.4 radio gear safely and confidently.
You'll first learn about the latest radio technology from Airtronics, Futaba, Hitec and Spektrum/JR and how they compare and use the radio spectrum in different ways. The 2.4 Clinic also has an overview of new 2.4 systems including Graupner's HOTT, JR's new DMSS, and the new DSMX frequency-hopping system from Spektrum.
Detailed installation demos show you how to properly install receivers and configure antennas in a variety of fiberglass and carbon fiber composite gliders. Other chapters cover receiver antenna orientation strategies, receiver binding procedures, setting fail safes, and 2.4 module use in older radios.
You will also learn how to avoid receiver black-outs and reboots by installing a high energy power system with either Nimh batteries or the new LiFe cells. Other demos show you some techniques to avoid dangerous power loss issues when running on-board BEC's in electric gliders.
The final chapters cover professional range testing and trouble shooting procedures to insure that your plane's antennas are properly placed and oriented to avoid reception dead spots.
No matter what skill level you're at or what radio system you use, you'll find the 2.4 Radio Clinic an extremely informative and educational resource that will insure your 2.4 radio installations are professional and trouble-free.
