What is IR (infrared?)

I saw single and two channel infrared transmitters mentioned in a Backyard flyer mag and just was wondering what the scoop is!
Just ordered my first indoor flyer, the Skeeter hawk and hope to explore the world of indoor rc!

A company called Z-Tron makes an IR radio system for indoor flight.

Apparently the Ztron equipment is not available at the present. There is a shortage of transmitters. He is reported to be saving his remaining equipment for a few old customers. It would be neat if someone came out with IR equipment again, or Ztron was able to bring them to market again.

There is a cunning plan afoot, to use a converter so we can use a std. R/C Tx.
When I get it I will test it and report back.
This was designed so you can have the functions of a computer R/C Tx
Its not very expensive either .... not compared to a R/C computer Tx anyway!

If this works out Ok, well then you really are in trouble !
No excuss for flying WW2 mono planes weighing more than 14g and twins more than 20g - cheap too so 25 planes each !

Next step is 1.5g six channels R/F Rx

does 6 into 1.5 go?

The IR buddy box is a good idea and very simple and hence should be cheap, IR does have it's disadvantages but it is very cost and weight effective!


p.s. I am now moved, thank god!
