Evaluation team was composed of three, two were with the transmitter
and one stood with the plane at all times to observe
deterioration or failure of system to smoothly and consistently
control elevator and rudder.
DX7, and an Xtreme©
module system were evaluated. It was our intention to observe
performance difference between systems mounted within Tu-4 and the
system standing alone outside an airframe.
away comparisons were conducted to a distance of up to 800+ feet
without "any" change in spread spectrum system performance. That is
to say no change in system performance whether a system
configuration was (1), (2), or (3)
with the systems set to normal flight power mode.
fuselage sat upside down on its transport cradle elevated
approximately three feet above the ground. Flite-Metal was
placed over the wing saddle and all holes in fuselage so a signal
would not have entry to the receiver except passing through
Flite-Metal covered fiber glass fuselage.
