Radio Control Unit

The Radio Control used is a standard 6-channel unit purchased from Hobby King. There is nothing special about this unit apart from the fact that we have replaced the variable resistor on channel 6 with a switch. This switch is used to activate Altitude Hold in the UAV software.

So we have four analog joystick channels for throttle, roll, pitch and yaw. Then we have two channels with toggle switches.

One toggle switch changes between acrobatic and level mode, and the other activates the Altitude hold.

A 6 channel radio is really the minimum requirement and leaves no free channels for activation of a video/still camera
