Remember reed radios?

Raise your palm if we remember a days of single-channel, escapement RC! According to a poster, “This indication uses a 45-year-old radio control complement (Futaba F-66) that usually controls a rudder regulating a rubber rope powered clockwork mechanism.  The radio has one symbol that we press in a scold method to get right, left , or neutral rudder. If we listen closely we can hear a escapement unwinding each time we press a control button. The indication has a 36″ camber and is powered by a Cox .020 engine.  These were a initial exam flights so a engine run is short.  we will supplement some-more downthrust before we fly it again.”  Thanks to smorrislmbco for posting this video on YouTube!
