Rc 2-3 Channel Radio

An RC 2-3 Channel Radio is kind of basic!

RC 2-3 channel radios refer to the number of control radio frequencies that are being sent to the RC model and received by it. The hand-held radio controlled has a set number of frequencies that it can transfer to the receiver on the model, which accordingly, has the required equipment to translate and pick the signal. Normally, the more the number of channels that the Radio equipment has, the more things the model can do.

In the 1950s, single channel receivers were the latest thing in radio technology and that meant right, left and neutral were the only ways that the models could go. However, in the case of RC Aircraft, there was a need to get higher channel ranges mainly due to the need to take a plane up or down. Hence with the need in time and an improvement in technology, 2 and more channel radio transmitters and receivers became the norm.

As mentioned, RC 2-3 channel models are mostly those that require basic movements such as up and down, right or left and maybe just one more feature of some sort, depending on the type of model. The best part about RC 2-3 channel radio sets is that they are meant for beginners, especially to the world of RC Flying.

RC 2-3 channel transmitters/receivers are developed for different kinds of models for e.g. a 2-channel radio set is normally meant for road-based and some water-based models. These models do not, normally, require more than two control features i.e. accelerate or brake and turn right or left. While these are adequate in such RC models, when it comes to planes, you will need an additional channel.

Planes, along with moving forward or back as well as right or left, need to be capable of moving up or down as well. This is extremely important to all models of planes, even the most basic ones. Similarly, helicopters also need to be able to adjust their upwards and downwards movement although in some cases, only 2-channels are adequate for RC Helicopter.

When you are beginning your RC Hobby and go to the store to get your first RC model, then chances are that you will probably come home with something that runs on an RC 2-3 channel radio set. Along with ease of use and configuration, these radios do not require much fuss and are extremely easy to use even for absolute beginners.
