Hitec Planet T5 2.4GHz Tx & Rx Set (Mode II)
Excl. VAT: £49.99
The Planet T5 transmitter and R6M micro receiver have been designed for crystal-free operation with Park Flyer, indoor aircraft and small electric-type models.
It's uncomplicated yet sophisticated design makes it an ideal first system or a general purpose sport system for R/C modelling. It uses state-of-the-art computer technology to bind it's transmitter and receiver in such a fashion that, under most model flying conditions, interference that would normally cause loss of control in 35mHz or 27mHz equipment is nearly always rejected-and in most cases radio functionality is entirely unaffected.
This makes for a safer, more reassuring flying experience. It also enables a pilot to turn up, switch on and fly under most conditions-subject to local flying guidelines and rules. Planet T5 features Advanced 2.4GHz control with a highly sensitive 6 gram micro receiver that make it ideal for even the smaller R/C indoor models. The new design single aerial micro receiver is ultra-compact and allows for rapid and convenient installation especially when compared with some 2.4GHz twin-unit multi-aerial receiver designs available.
2.4Ghz technology creates a ‘bound' relationship between the Transmitter and Receiver. The 'setup' of this relationship is known as ‘binding' and can be achieved simply with one click of the R6M's Binding Microswitch.
In a ‘bound' transmitter/receiver state the receiver is exclusively bound to the transmitter and can only respond to signals received from that transmitter. Binding is done at the factory. Once a transmitter is bound to it's receiver, re-binding of transmitter and receiver is not normally required.
Planet T5 features:
- Simple one-button transmitter/receiver binding
- Side & rear ergonomic grips for maximum transmitter security
- Steel carry handle and neck strap mount
- Precision, adjustable height dual-axis stick units
- Front-mounted reversing switch panel
- Unique slow-rate retract/flap switch (channel 5)
- Low power consumption 4-cell transmitter
- Lightweight (6 gram) micro 6-channel receiver
- Simple programmable fail-safe function
- Convenient crystal-free operation
The Planet T5 should only be used at ranges of up to around 100 metres. Always perform a range check before use! Planet 5 has been tested with many types of models and operated at ranges significantly greater than that recommended.
However, 2.4GHz equipment can be affected by terrain, weather and obstacles to a greater degree than conventional 35mHz R/C equipment. Therefore, do not be tempted to exceed the specifications described in detail in the instruction manual!
