Radio Setup - Set to model name
last updated 3-31-2007

Most computer radios allow you to store more then one helicopter. It is a good idea to name each model you setup and before you crank the helicopter up verify you are in the correct model for that helicopter. If you use your radio on a simulator make sure you name that model SIM or Simulator. Some radios only allow you three characters while others give several. For the radios that only have three characters here are some sample names you can use: R30, R50, R60, R90, 3v2 (30 v2), 5v2, RAP.
Tip: If your radio does not have naming and only shows the model number then get a number sticker corresponding to the model number and place that on the canopy or somewhere you will see it. The sticker will help you remember which model number you used in the radio for that helicopter.
