I have always thought that Mxnual did an excellent job writing their manuals, and the manual for the RDS is no different. All of the diagrams in the manual are clear and easy to read.

AIRTRONICS RDS8000 FHSS Quick Start Manual

Can be set Positive or Negative. While the RDS shares the same programming and case from the RD channel radio Airtronics has made one major change to the exterior of the radio. Both ailerons will act as spoilers as the throttle stick is used. The same is true for the receivers.

Setting up the radio for my Kaos was very simple. Now with those small gripes out of the way let’s talk about what I liked about the radio. With the range check completed it was time airgronics fly the plane. Under each channel the options for that channel are laid out in order.

The latest advance in our radio equipment is 2. In other radio brands the throttle cut must be assigned to a radio switch and then programmed, but on the RDS it has its own button and the only programming required is to set the amount of travel that occurs when the control is activated.


While Airtronics says it’s basically the same as the old Airfronics radio, I must say that it felt better in my hands than my old 8-channel radio. But the latest advance in our equipment almost overshadows all of those previous changes combined.


There are two switches and a control button on the face of the radio and one toggle switch located on the top of the radio. After I was in the air I did have to make some slight adjustments to bring the plane into a hands-off trim airhronics. On very light sailplanes the rate of descent may be airtronids slow that the plane tends to “float right past” the landing spot.

After reliability, the biggest selling point for me with the Airtronics 2. It also doubles as a stopwatch or countdown timer to use in timing your flights. And when you think about, it is actually quite a stroke of genius on Airtronics’ part.

The programming menus for the RDS is very easy to understand and navigate. The last control on this side of the radio is a throttle cut button. Whether flying a basic model or one that rdx8000 advanced features, the RDS can do it all!

Because of this and aietronics fact that each manufacture uses a unique encryption of the signal and transmitter ID you cannot interchange transmitter and receivers among manufacturers. Because the receiver was already bound to the transmitter I did not have to do this for my radio, but I want to explain the process here to show how simple it is to do.

For those who haven’t dealt with a 2.

Aircraft Basic Menu Structure. The purpose of this mixer is to allow one transmitter control input to affect flight functions. The top switch controls retracts when in Airplane mode and Flight mode 3 when in Helicopter mode. I liked the fact that the radio is equipped with a stopwatch that can count up or down when used to time flights. As you can see in my photo I packed the receiver in foam just forward of the servos in my Kaos. This is a valuable option as most sailplanes will need a change in pitch trim when ever flaps are deployed.


On the right side of the panel are four buttons, which are also used to make selections while programming the radio. The antenna of the receiver is two “wires” that extend from the receiver. While holding down the BIND key on the receiver turn the receiver on.

Whether this is true or not I don’t know, but the radio felt really nice in my hands. The trainer connection is the standard Airtronics 5-pin connection that has been used for many years.

Since I save all of my programming sheets I can quickly re-setup the plane using the cheat sheet.

In the middle of the control panel are 4 buttons, which are used to sirtronics the programming menu as well as change the settings for items within the menus. I think that it was a great decision on the part of Airtronics to make a move such as this.

Airtronics has taken the aurtronics to create a radio system that will appeal to a large group of pilots, but has kept the price at a level that the wallet is sure to like.
