RADIOS AIRTRONICS RDS8000 8-Channel 2.4GHz FHSS-1 Aircraft Radio

$300.00 $250.00

The RDS8000 is a full-featured 8-Ch 2.4G FHSS-1 Digital Proportional radio control system, packed with capabilities for all types of aircraft and helictopers. A top-quality digital radio, the RDS8000 is noted for its ease-of-operation and programming. Fixed wing, sailplane and helicopter pilots will all benefit when using the programming features the RDS8000 offers.

Whether flying a basic model or one that requires advanced features, the RDS8000 can do it all! A key feature of the RDS8000 is the ability to use either basic or advanced program menu. The RDS8000 makes programming easier by allowing you to turn off any programming screen not required, and because it uses the Airtronics 2.4G FHSS-1 frequency modulation, you never have to worry about an 'open frequency'. Fly without frequency control any time with confidence.

*The RDS8000 features a Trainer System that is compatible with Airtronics RD, RDS and VG series transmitters.

 Items Required, But Not Included:

Receiver Battery: The receiver's nominal input voltage is 4.8-6.6v, therefore, the receiver can be powered using a 4- or 5-Cell NiCd or Ni-MH battery pack, or a 2S Li-Fe/A123 Battery Pack. DO NOT USE A 2S Li-Po!

Servos: No servos are included. Analog or Digital servos can be used. We recommend using Airtronics servos that are within the specification range required for your model.
