Robbe U47 and Navy F14 TX
« on: October 10, 2011, 02:51:00 PM »

I'm building my first RC sub and I'm just about finished with the hull portion. Here's my dilemma. I have a Robbe F14 Navy twin stack TX ( I'm in the US and using 75mhz), I want to have front and rear servo controlled dive planes  will also have an Engel 825ml piston tank. My question is what or how should I set up the F14, I thought about using the right controller for the rear dive plane ( Planning on a Pitch Controller for the rear drive planes any recommendations on that? ) and the rudders, and use the twin stack for both the ESC (Right) and front dive planes (Left) but I'm sure I'll have to add another Robbe module to control the Engle Piston. The RX is the one that can with the F14 8  {:-channel. Any ideas as to what would be the best module to control the Engel?
Thanks John

Yes thats how I would do it. Right stick rudder and rear dive plane (to override the Pitch Controller). Left Navy sticks for throttle and front dive plane (depth control). You will need either a 3 position switch or a slider depending on what piston tank controller you got. No need for any expansion module. I preety much have moved over to Microgryros Pitch controllers now.
