Maker Hangar is a 15-part video series by Lucas Weakley.
In Episode 12 of Maker Hangar, Lucas Weakley shows us how to set up the radio for the plane. We learn how to zero out the control surfaces, how to check for the correct directions of all the controls, and how to program in the travel and dual rates for all the movements. So grab your radio, and lets get programming!
New installments will air every Tuesday and Thursday through August. Also, be sure to join us on the Maker Hangar Google+ Community page to share your ideas, comments, photos and video and details for your own RC plane project builds.
