This is what winter does to a retired model builder. I found a use for my old FM transmitter. I think it's a bit of overkill but it does work. Hoping for a good fly day soon.Another Stooge 20191212

Gosh. I just bought a chalk line reel and didn't put the chalk in. I think it cost about the same as a pack of batteries

I hope your field does not do quarantine! lol!

No problems with the field, I'm out a ways, lots open ground to fly. I agree with the cost the parts were all extra stuff.😁 I upgraded to a new transmitter and receivers.

Neat idea, kind of curious to see how it works in application. Having a transmitter hanging around your neck while spinning in circles might be hindering. Usually it’s a pull string that you toss to the side, doubt you are going to do that to your radio Wink

Lol. Had a good laugh at that. But, I can just see someone out there somewhere doing just that before realizing it.

I was thinking the same thing...don't think I want that thing hanging around my neck. It is an old FM unit with not much value these days so I plan to just set it down and hope I don't trip on it..lol

I'm thinking simple garage door, tx/rx technology, would
cover this. Clip the remote on your belt, one button.

Other than the subject, I think that RC car transmitter can be used as a CL handle for up/down and other manouvers. Rx and servos in model can be used for throttle, ailerons etc. Very Happy

I changed a micro foamy Sukoi that was too fast to fly indoors, and too light to fly outdoors to fly control line. I only used one line attached to the wingtip, and back of the little transmitter and a bit of tip weight. It worked ok indoors but the lines went slack pretty easy. Needed more tip weight I guess. I tried more right rudder when flying to see if it helped but could not tell the difference. I heard of a guy back in the 1960s that did that with an RC plane and had a separate line on the outside wingtip. He was at a contest and then let go of the line and flew it with RC. Of course the announcer tried to get everyone all excited saying it is out of control, and he did loops and rolls to scare them. To get get somewhat back to the subject, the F2D combat guys sometimes have a cutoff with RC. I think Lou used it here once when it was a flyaway. Sometimes the pendulum shutoffs don't work that well, especially when the guys defeat it so it doesn't go off with a light midair.
