Air brake/spoiler

Recommended Posts

I have built a Vesna res glider and I’m finding it difficult programming the aibrakes. I have Futaba 8j and would like to control them with the throttle stick, any advice?

Hi John

 

I'm not the best to give advice (been out of RC action for 35years), but I would have though it best to stick your airbrakes on a 2 or 3 way switch (i.e. no brakes, half brakes and full brakes)?

It is easy to nudge the throttle stick and that could cost you height/performance issues.

I have been learning about the myriad of programming options myself and it's enough to make your head spin at times...But I found google to be great for video tutorials on virtually every aspect of setting up RC...There are some serious hard core RC "nerds" out there that go into to it as deep as you like...God bless'em, would be lost without them :) 

I'm sure the dons here will step in soon with further advice.

Happy flying with your Vesna.

 

Cheers

Does it have a motor?

If not then the easiest way would be to plug them into ch1 (using a Y lead if necessary). That should automatically put them on the "Throttle" stick, though you may need to reverse the channel if you want Up stick to be brakes Closed/Flush.
