I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Whilst looking through YouTube for anything new on the FrSky system I came across THIS . For the younger members this is how it used to be done way before propo/galloping ghost/ reeds. Just imagine, if beginners think its difficult now! Not only did you have to contend with the inconsistancies of rubber powered escapements but you probably had to make a lot of the system yourself. No wonder I only played with boats in those days. I marvel at the perverse nature of some people who like to give themselves a hard time in the pursuite of nostalgia.

One push for right and two for left. A quick tap for change throttle to high or low.That was progress. Only one model to fly at a time, no crystals in those days. Happiness was coming home with the model at all.

Throttle control? ........... Luxury!
I had a smile at "Happiness was coming home with the model at all". (How true!)

Great stuff Melfyn. Thanks for posting that one. Each flight was an adventure. No guarantee of a safe return.

I saw that one Mel, but what got me about the one I posted was the fact that he had used 2.4gHz spread spectrum radio link and added a pic micro to emulate single channel to drive a normal proportional servo geek

Alan
I've just viewed the original and read all his text. Now I see why you highlighted it. The radio gear emulator gives umpteen different versions of "single channel" all contained in the psuedo single channel transmitter.
The man's obviously an electronics boffin of significant skill with a very agile mind and lots of spare time. Good luck to him.
An interesting item never the less.
