Default How it Works Our Remote Controlled Radio Systems

I've written a series of articles in a South Eastern Wisconsin Club newsletter over a period of several years, concerning the radio control systems we are all using.

These articles have been compiled into a 35 page PDF file, with the table of contents as listed below:

Table of Contents
Chapter 1 Introduction to this article
Chapter 2 Nicad Battery and related terms
Chapter 3 Nicad Battery and Rules on use in RC models
Chapter 4 What are these 2.4 Ghz radios?
Chapter 5 Introduction to Transmitters
Chapter 6 New in the market, the Futabas 2.4 Ghz Radios
Chapter 7 More on batteries, introducing the A123 cells
Chapter 8 Transmitter Fundamentals
Chapter 9 Generating Radio Waves
Chapter 10 Resonance and the radio crystals
Chapter 11 Transmitter Modulation, what is AM?
Chapter 12 Using to small of a battery in our receivers
Chapter 13 FM Modulation of the Transmitter radio signal
Chapter 14 More on just what AM and FM modulation is
- - - - - - - - - Just what is Spektrum doing with their transmitted radio waves???
Chapter 15 Who is better? Spektrum/JR or Futaba?
Chapter 16 Receiver and Servo vibration issues, how it can affect your models.
Chapter 17 Introduction to radio receivers
Chapter 18 Radio Receiver resonance
Chapter 19 Caution on 2.4 Ghz video cameras in your models
Chapter 20 Just what is a Superhetrodyne Receiver???
Chapter 21 More on vibration issues, continue on with Superhet Receivers
Chapter 22 Single and double conversion Superhet Receivers
Chapter 23 Decoding the output signal for your servos
Chapter 24 What’s inside your servos?
Addendums 02/2008 Charging those larger Nicad/Nihyd cells for your receiver
Addendums 09/2008 More Info on charging those larger Nicad/Hihyd cells
Addendums 10-2008 ESC controls and effects of longer wires, (Inductance)
Addendums 11/2008 Editors Receiver Amphour meter, what was found with this device
Addendums 12/2008 More on Microwave Radios, How JR and Spektrum radios compare

Perhaps this attached PDF article will assist those modelers who are looking to buy new radios, or have an interest on just how these radios work.

Thanks!

Its appreciated, hopefully, the Wattflyer readers will find bits of useful information in the PDF file.

FYI, also, thanks to those who have created the extremely useful wattflyer webpage. That had to be a LOT of work.

I don't mean to nit pick, because this is a great article, but when you said barrows, didn't you mean barrels?? I read this and I think it is a very well written article and is very informative. I hope you don't mind, but I passed this on to a couple of people I know that may get some good use out of it. I just gave them the link so they could read it.

Yep, you're right! Dang that spell checker anyhow, it will pass misused words. :o

(This article was based on a series of articles that were first published in the Racine Radio Control Club newsletter, "The Flightline". No one in the my club, or other clubs in the Milwaukee Area caught it!)

No problem with others reading it. I've gotten a lot of info myself from Wattflyer!
