Futaba 10C 2.4GHZ – The User’s Guide – Radio Control Transmitter Book


This is the book that begins where the user manual ends and takes the owner of a 2.4 GHz 10C, or FF7 in the UK, to a new understanding of what their transmitter can do. It is presented in stages, starting with the elementary aspects of radio control, progressing to a fuller description of advanced features for both helicopter and other powered aircraft, and completing the coverage with numerous examples for the use of the controls, particularly mixers.
