AIRTRONICS RDS8000 FHSS Quick Start Manual

The decision to leave servos and a receiver battery out of the included hardware may prove to be something that the industry will follow on. Moving to the bottom portion of the radio we get to the controls used for programming the radio. So the RDS will be able to suit all of your flying needs with a full line of 2. The amount of travel with each click is programmable in the radio, so you can set it to what suits you best. These receivers are small and light weight, about 1oz, and look like they will fit into most park flyers.

Adding some down elevator will help reduce it. So with this in mind, let’s dive in and take a look at rdz8000 Airtronics RDS 2.

The top switch controls retracts when in Airplane mode and Flight mode 3 when in Helicopter mode. By making this adjustment with an electronic mixer, the pilot does not have to alter the elevator digital trims each time flaps are used, and thus does not have to re-trim the elevators for normal flight. The RDS is equipped with trim memory so the radio will remember the trim settings for each plane that is programmed to it. The manual has several suggestions on how meet the degree rule.

In addition, with many electric planes out there today the radio will be powered from the ESC Electronic Speed Controlwhich is driven by the main battery for the motor, and in cases such as this the pilot doesn’t even require a battery to be shipped with the radio. And when testing a new technology like this I guess that is about the best thing that can be said. The purpose of a Compensation Mixer is to allow one transmitter control input to affect two flight functions.


Currently Airtronics is offering only the one 8-channel receiver. Because the receiver was already bound to the transmitter I did not have to do this airtrinics my radio, but I want to explain the process here to show wirtronics simple it manuap to do.

However, the RDS provides a predefined mixer for this function. On older radios the range check was airfronics by walking about 30 paces away from the plane and lowering the antenna, but of course that is not possible on a 2. Whether flying a basic model or one that requires aidtronics features, the RDS can do it all! And when you think about, it is mqnual quite a stroke of genius on Airtronics’ part.

The RDS is equipped with a trim tab for the 4 major axis of control on the sticks of the radio, which are throttle, rudder, elevator, and ailerons. Whether this is true or not I don’t know, but the radio felt really nice in my hands.

But this brings up one of my biggest complaints about this radio which actually goes back to the older RD and RD radios. Fly any time with confidence. Airtronics felt rds8000 this setup gave the best performance while still remaining easy to install for the pilot. The trims are digital, which means that each time the trim tab is moved you will get one “click” of travel from that control.

The RDS makes programming easier by allowing you to turn off any programming screen not required. Turning the radio over we find the tds8000 compartment. Throughout the history of RC flying there have been changes to the radio equipment that has made dramatic and drastic changes in the way we participated in this hobby. I still have it and it works fine. Also located here is a trainer button, which is used to airtronivs control to an attached buddy box when training a student to fly.

Normally when you drop the flaps on a aircraft it will start to climb. But today in many cases a pilot will buy a radio and immediately discard the servos and battery because they just don’t suit his flying style.

Gone is the long antenna that needed to be extended while the radio is in use. As a long time Airtronics user I was extremely pleased to see Airtronics get into the 2. 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.


Helicopter, fixed wing aircraft and sailplane pilots will all benefit when using the standard features of the RDS The Bind LED on the receiver will flash rapidly and then will turn to a solid light. Under each channel the options for that channel are laid out in order.

It comes with an 8-channel receiver, charger and switch harness.

The RDS functionally is exactly like manyal RD in all respects except for the transmitting frequency. It has enough flexibility to appeal to even the most advanced pilots, yet it’s programming is simple enough for any pilot, even those just starting out, to figure out. CPY Copy – Copy one model to another. It can also be used so that dds8000 strip ailerons act as flaps and deploy in a downward direction to create aittronics lift and drag.

After I was in the air I did have to make some slight adjustments to bring the plane into a hands-off trim condition. When the box is removed the foam-packing container will be a little “empty”. This knowledge of the planes allows me to know what the product being reviewed adds to, or subtracts from, the airtronocs. The RDS has a push button that, when pushed, overrides the throttle sticks low throttle position and drives your throttle servo to a lower position, stopping the engine.

It took me a total of about 10 minutes to dial in all the settings I needed for this plane. All of the diagrams in the manual are clear and easy to read. Since I save all of my programming sheets I can quickly re-setup the plane using the cheat sheet.

The programming menus for the RDS is very easy to understand and navigate. Two servos and two channels receiver channels 1 and 4 are required for V-Tail operation. The Bind LED will flash slowly.
