ATL = Adjustable Throttle Limiter
High-end feature which adjusts to bring full servo potential within the limits of bind-free servo travel. Ideal for throttle control, or for more effective braking in gas racing.
ATV/EPA = Adjustable Travel Volume/End Point Adjustment
Allows separate adjustments of maximum servo travel to both sides of neutral. Helps tailor outputs for different control styles. Please refer to this FAQ for more information
What is AFR? How is it different from ATV?
ATV is each individual servo’s end point adjustment. ATV is specific to each individual servo, so adjusting the ATV to the aileron channel will not, for example, adjust the servo throw of the second aileron servo if you have flaperons set up. ATV is the ‘master’ control. That is to say, it takes priority over all other items. Therefore, adjusting ATV will affect anything else that is a percentage from that number, including rates, exponentials, and mixes.
AFR is essentially «primary rate» (or high rate) to go with the ‘dual rate’ (or low rate) function of the radio. This is what the 8U and 6X consider the first switch position in dual rate which most modelers use as their high rate. AFR is active until the dual rate is activated, and it belongs to each CONTROL or AXIS of the airplane. Therefore, adjusting AFR for ailerons in a model with flaperons will affect the throw of both servos.
Why set AFR instead of adjusting ATV? Easy. ATV is your end point for EVERYTHING the radio does….mixes, expos, everything. So if you have a low rate, mixes, etc, that you like, but you need a little more (or less) on high rate, adjusting ATV will mess up all that other work. AFR is your ‘high rate’ so adjust it to your liking.
2. How do I set Expos? Exponential is set independently for your ‘high rate’ (called AFR) and ‘low rate’ (called dual rate). So you have to go into AFR, set your high rate how you want it, then go to the NEXT screen to set exponential. This is your expo setting for when your dual (low) rate is not activated for that channel.
Now if you also want expo on your low rate, then go to dual rates, set up your low rate and its switch, and then set an expo here as well.
PCM = Pulse Code Modulation
PCM systems use digitally encoded signals to minimize interference and provide today’s most advanced R/C control. Please refer to the PCM 1024 info page and the FAQ for more information.
Pulse Position Modulation. Another term for FM.
The control that allows the pilot to change the speed of the engine. In a car, the «gas pedal» is actually the throttle control for the car.
The programming function of the radio which allows throttle operation to be adjusted to meet the modeler’s specific needs at various points along the throttle movement. Particularly useful with 2-stroke engines in providing linear throttle response at the various points of throttle application.
For helis: Aids in setting the hover point, and end points of the throttle in the collective mix.
A radio function which locks the throttle at a fixed point while a switch is activated. This function is used to hold the throttle in an idle. Useful when starting, as well as for auto rotations.
