CONTROL TYPES OF RC CANOPIES

Selecting the control style of the pilot's hands depends on which style you select when you are in control or which one you are used to. Here are two of the most common control styles in MODE 2, which means the gas is on the left lever. If you will use MODE 1, the gas will be on the right lever.

A. Classic hand control

This control is comparable to the control of a real size paragliding wing. The right lever is the pilot's right hand, the left lever is the gas and the pilot's left hand. This control allows you to control the RC pilot and canopy sensitively, so you can use this style to achieve a finer and more realistic flight, thanks to the fact that each pilot's hand is controlled independently. Characteristics of this control:

- pull the left lever on the transmitter to yourself, the motor is off

- push the left lever on the transmitter from yourself, the motor speed increases (add gas)

- push the left lever to the left, the left pilot's hand will go down

- push the left lever to the right, the left pilot's hand will go up

- push the right lever to the right, the right pilot's hand will go down

- push the right lever to the left, the right pilot's hand will go up

1) this position is shown in the picture: „push the right lever to the right, the right pilot's hand will go down” (left hand is in neutral position)
2) this position is shown in the picture: „push the right lever to the left, the right pilot's hand will go up“ (left hand is in neutral position)

B. Control via the so-called delta-mix

If you choose the delta-mix control, there is a disadvantage that you can't control each pilot's hand separately. However, this applies only to older types of RC transmitters. For newer RC transmitter models, you can set the same control as in "A. Classic hand control". For older types of RC transmitters, where it isn't possible to control each hand individually, the following control features apply:

- pull the left lever on the transmitter to yourself, the motor is off

- push the left lever on the transmitter from yourself, the motor speed increases (add gas)

- push the left lever to the left, the left pilot's hand will go down and the right one will go up

- push the left lever to the right, the right pilot's hand will go down and the left one will go up

- pull the right lever to yourself, both pilot's hands will go down

- pull the right lever from yourself, both pilot's hands will go up

3) this position is shown in the picture: „push the left lever to the left, the left pilot's hand will go down and the right one will go up“
4) this position is shown in the picture: „pull the right lever from yourself, both pilot's hands will go up“
