safety and usage precautions
In addition to the FCC Compliance section on the previous page, please observe the following safety and usage precautions when installing and using your new Airtronics SD-10G 2.4GHz FHSS-3 radio control system.
Turn the transmitter ON first and then turn the receiver ON. After using your model, turn the receiver OFF first, then turn the transmitter OFF. It can be dangerous if you activate the components in reverse order as the servos may start up inadvertently. Before use, double-check that the transmitter and receiver batteries are sufficiently charged. Never touch the transmitter antenna during use. Doing so may cause loss of transmitter output, making it impossible to control your model.
Before use, the transmitter antenna should be pulled up completely and angled so that the antenna is as close to perpendicular to the ground as possible during use. After use, to prevent any chance of damaging the antenna, the antenna should be lowered and moved into the horizontal stowed position. Do not expose the transmitter to water or excessive moisture.
Do Not Expose to Moisture or Direct Sunlight
Keep Antenna Perpendicular to Ground
Do not expose the transmitter to excessive heat or direct sunlight. Leaving the transmitter out in direct sunlight can damage the LCD Display.
The receiver antenna wires consist of two coaxial cables and two reception wires (the thin tip at the end of the coaxial cables). When you mount the receiver antenna wires, do not bend the reception wires. Reception performance decreases if the reception wires are bent. The receiver antenna wires are delicate, therefore, handle with care. Do not pull on the receiver antenna wires with force. Do not cut or extend the receiver antenna wires. The coaxial cables can be bent into gentle curves, however, do not bend the coaxial cables acutely, or repeatedly bend them, or the antenna cores can be damaged. When installed in an electric-powered model, keep the receiver antenna wires as far away as possible from the motor, battery, and electronic speed control (ESC). There is a danger of runaway operation if connectors shake loose during use. Make sure that the receiver, servo(s), and switch harness connectors are securely fitted. The receiver is susceptible to vibration and moisture. Take appropriate measures to protect against vibration and moisture. The receiver should be wrapped in foam and the foam should be secured around the receiver to hold it in place. The foam should not be secured too tightly or the vibration dampening quality will be reduced. Failure to take appropriate measures could result in damage to the receiver.

Due to the extremely high frame rate that the 92104 10-Channel receiver included with your SD-10G 2.4GHz FHSS-3 radio control system operates at, we strongly recommend the use of digital servos. If you use analog servos and experience problems, you will need to either upgrade to digital servos or use the Airtronics 92824 8-Channel, 92674 7-Channel, or 92664 6-Channel Micro 2.4GHz FHSS-1 receivers. These receivers operate at a lower frame rate, therefore, analog servos can be used with them without issue.

basic model setup order
The information on this page describes the Basic Model Setup Order that you can use to setup a new model. Regardless of the model you are flying, using the basic functions of the SD-10G transmitter for most applications is easy and will get your model setup quickly. It's a simple 5-step process.
TRANSMIT BIND CODE
AERO, GLID, OR HELI
REV, CENT, EPA, LIMT
1) Bind the Receiver to the Transmitter and Position the Receiver Antennas:
Turn the transmitter ON and navigate to the SYSTEM>MODULATION menu. Hold down the Bind Button on the receiver. While holding down the Bind Button on the receiver, turn the receiver ON. Release the Bind Button on the receiver. The Bind LED will slowly blink. Scroll down to TRANSMIT BIND CODE and press the YES/+ key. The Bind LED will blink rapidly. After the Bind LED stops blinking rapidly, press the END key. The Bind LED will turn solid. Install the receiver in your model, making sure that the two receiver antenna wires are mounted 90 to each other. Rotate the transmitter antenna so that it is positioned at a 45 angle toward you.
2) Choose a Model Type:
Navigate to the SYSTEM>TYPE menu. Press the YES/+ or NO/- keys to select the Model Type that matches your model, either AERO (Powered Aircraft), GLID (Sailplane), or HELI (Helicopter).
3) Make Model Type Selections:
Scroll down to choose the various options related to the Model Type you've chosen. AERO - Select what type of wing (Normal or Delta), the number of aileron servos (1 or 2), the number of flap servos (1 or 2), the type of tail (Normal, V-Tail, or Dual Elevator Servos), and how many engines (1 or 2) your model features. GLID - Select what type of wing (Normal or Delta), the number of aileron servos (2 or 4), the number of flap servos (1, 2, or 4), and the type of tail (Normal or V-Tail) your model features. HELI - Select the type of swashplate your model features. Each Swashplate Type features a diagram showing where the servos are positioned on the swashplate. Choose the Swashplate Type that matches your model.
After making your selections, press the ENTER key, then the YES/+ key. The pre-programmed model template will be loaded into the transmitter.
4) Name Your Model:
Navigate to the SYSTEM>MODEL NAME menu and input a name for your model. This will allow you to easily choose this model again for later use. The Model Name will be displayed on the Top menu so that you know which model is currently in use.
5) Plug In Servos and Setup Control Surfaces:
Navigate to the Surface menu (it's directly below SYSTEM on the Top menu). The upper portion of the Surface menu displays which servos plug into which channel slots in the receiver. Use this information to plug your servos into the receiver in the correct order. Use the Surface menu to adjust direction of travel (NOR/REV), centering (CENT) and maximum travel (EPA) in both directions for each of your servos. Adjust the settings for each servo separately to ensure that the movements are correct and that the swashplate, dual ailerons, dual elevators, etc, are moving the same amount.
tips and suggestions
Many of the Tips and Suggestions on the following pages can be found throughout this Operating Manual, however, we have listed the most important ones here for your convenience.
When you see next page.
in the lower right corner of a page, this indicates that the current section is continued at the top of the
For outdoor use, the antenna should be extended for maximum range. For indoor use, the antenna can be left in the retracted position.
A voltage regulator is required if your receiver battery voltage output is higher than 6.0 volts. An after-market peak-detection charger and/or cycler can be used to charge the Ni-MH transmitter battery, however, the battery must first be removed from the transmitter to be charged. The circuitry within the transmitter will interfere with the peak-detection charger's normal operation, resulting in over-charging and damaging the battery and possibly the transmitter itself. Up to 10 servos can be plugged into the receiver separately. To utilize the Channel 9/BATT or the Channel 10/BATT slots along with a battery, you must plug a Y-Harness into the channel slot, then plug the servo into one side of the Y-Harness and the battery switch harness into the other side of the Y-Harness. It is extremely important that the receiver antenna wires be mounted as described. This will ensure that your model receives control signals no matter what its posture, altitude, or heading. All receiver channel assignments can be programmed to suit the user. For example, in the default configuration, receiver channel slot 1 controls Elevator, however, this channel slot can be programmed to control Aileron or control Rudder, etc. This allows the utmost control for nearly any custom configuration you may require. All switches (right- and left-hand switch arrays), auxiliary levers, auxiliary push-buttons, and the Auxiliary Dial Knob can be programmed to perform different functions depending on the user's preference. Some of these switches and buttons are pre-programmed with specific functions based on the Model Type. For default function assignments, please see those specific sections of this Operating Manual. The radio control system is range checked using the Low Power Mode function. Do not attempt to fly with the transmitter in Low Power Mode. You will be unable to control your model once it is a certain distance away from you. The SD-10G transmitter features a Type function which allows you to quickly set up the transmitter's low-level mixing based on the type of model you're flying. Common templates for AERO, GLIDER, and HELI model types are provided. For example, if your model features two aileron servos, two flap servos, and dual elevator servos, choosing these options will automatically change the transmitter's programming to accommodate this setup. This takes the guess-work out of setting up more complex models. Model Type selection is used when setting up a new model and should be done prior to making any programming changes to your model. When the Model Type selection is changed for the currently selected model, all programming (including custom programming) for that model will be reset. The SD-10G transmitter features several different safety features that will sound an audible alarm when triggered. If you turn your SD-10G transmitter ON and it beeps, this is more than likely a safety alarm. The Display Key activates the transmitter's LCD Display without actually turning the transmitter ON. This allows you to check and/or change programming settings without actually turning the transmitter ON. To turn only the LCD Display ON, press and hold the Display Key for ~2 seconds. To turn the LCD Display OFF, press the Display Key once. The SD-10G transmitter is compatible with FHSS-3 and FHSS-1 Airtronics 2.4GHz receivers. To bind the transmitter to an FHSS-1 receiver, such as the Airtronics 92824 2.4GHz receiver included with the RDS8000 2.4GHz radio control system, the transmitter modulation must first be changed to FH1. Pressing the YES/+ key when a System menu or an F-Mode menu selection is highlighted will add that selection to the Custom menu. Selections added to the Custom menu are denoted by a. Models stored on the Memory Expansion Card (if installed), are denoted with an 'M' (i.e. M21:SANWA-04). In the default configuration, the Model Select List contains 10 AERO model types and 10 HELI model types. The Model Type for any of the 20 models in the Model Select List can be changed using the Type menu. The Direct Model Select function allows you to select one of three of your most-used models from memory without going through the Model Select menu. This makes it much quicker and easier to load the programming for your three favorite models.
Use the diagrams below to familiarize yourself with the different control features of your new SD-10G transmitter. Descriptions of these features can be found on pages 12 through 13. The features referenced below are general in nature. Features specific to the Model Type (aircraft, helicopter, or sailplane) can be found in those specific sections of this Operating Manual. For outdoor use, the antenna should be extended for maximum range. For indoor use, the antenna can be left in the retracted position.

Flight Mode warning alarm
The SD-10G transmitter is equipped with a safety feature that will not allow you to use the transmitter if the Flight Mode is not set to 'N' (Normal) when you turn the transmitter ON. If the Flight Mode is not set to 'N' when you turn the transmitter ON, the Flight Mode Warning alarm will sound continuously, the red RF Output Indicator will blink, and the LCD Display will read F-MODE NOT 'N' !! To clear the Flight Mode Warning, set the Flight Mode to 'N' using the Flight Mode Switch (this is different from the F-MODE Key). The LCD Display will read normally, the Flight Mode Warning alarm will cease, and both the red and green RF Output Indicators will be illuminated. In the default AERO configuration, Flight Mode N (Normal) is switch position 10. In the default HELI configuration, Flight Mode N (Normal) is switch position 22. In the default GLID configuration, the Flight Mode Warning alarm is Inhibited.
trainer mode warning alarm
The SD-10G transmitter is equipped with a safety feature that will warn you when the transmitter is set to Trainer - Master or Trainer - Slave when the transmitter is turned ON. If the transmitter is set to Trainer - Master when you turn the transmitter ON, the Trainer Mode Warning alarm will sound continuously, the red RF Output Indicator will blink, and the LCD Display will read TRAINER MODE MASTER !! If the transmitter is set to Trainer - Slave when you turn the transmitter ON, the Trainer Mode Warning alarm will sound continuously, the red RF Output Indicator will blink, and the LCD Display will read TRAINER MODE SLAVE !! To clear either of the Trainer Mode Warnings, press any of the three Programming Keys, the F-MODE Key, or the ENTER Key. The LCD Display will read normally, the Trainer Mode Warning alarm will cease, and both the red and green RF Output Indicators will be illuminated (if set to Slave, only the green RF Output Indicator will blink). Clearing the Trainer Mode Warning does not change the Trainer setting of the transmitter. When the Trainer Mode Warning is cleared, the transmitter will still be in Trainer Mode - either set to Master or set to Slave.
power switch warning alarm
The SD-10G transmitter is equipped with a Power Switch Warning alarm that will warn you when the transmitter is turned ON and there has been no movement of the control sticks or switches for 15 minutes. If the transmitter is left on for 15 minutes or longer without any input the Power Switch Warning alarm will sound continuously and the LCD Display will read POWER SW ON !! To clear the Power Switch Warning, either turn the transmitter OFF or press any of the three Programming Keys, the F-MODE Key, or the ENTER Key.
custom transmitter ADJUSTMENTS
Every effort has been made to engineer the optimum transmitter weight, balance, and feel in the design of your SD-10G 2.4GHz FHSS-3 radio control system. For example, the transmitter control sticks are ball bearing-supported for smooth control and use springs that result in superior feel for most pilots. Some aspects of the transmitter are customizable though, to suit the user's particular taste.
control stick length adjustment
The length of the control sticks can be adjusted to best suit the way you hold them. In general, pilots who place their thumbs on top of the control sticks prefer the control sticks to be shorter, and pilots who grasp the control sticks prefer the control sticks to be longer. In the default configuration, the control sticks are adjusted to the shortest length. 1) While holding the base of the control stick, turn the top half of the control stick counter-clockwise to loosen it.
2) To lengthen the control stick, turn the top half of the control stick counter-clockwise. When lengthening the control sticks, we strongly suggest that you leave at least four threads inside the top half of each control stick. This will ensure that the control sticks maintain optimum mechanical security. If you thread the control sticks out too far, the control sticks might come loose during use.
3) Once your are satisfied with the length of the control stick, thread the bottom half of the control stick up and tighten it gently against the top half of the control stick.
control stick tension adjustment
The spring tension of the control sticks can be adjusted to suit your preference. Increasing the spring tension makes the control stick's movement firmer. Decreasing the spring tension makes the control stick's movement softer. The throttle control stick ratchet can also be adjusted. Loosening the throttle control stick ratchet will make the throttle detents less noticeable. Tightening the throttle control stick ratchet will make the throttle detents firmer. The throttle detents can even be eliminated for those helicopter pilots who prefer to have no throttle ratchet.
1) Open the battery cover by first pushing the two latches (A) inward, then by pulling up on the bottom of the battery cover. 2) Unplug the battery from the transmitter and remove it. Set the battery aside for now. 3) Remove the four Phillips head screws (B) from the back of the transmitter, then very carefully pull the back half of the transmitter off.
There are no wires attached between the back half of the transmitter and the circuit boards inside the transmitter. When the back half of the transmitter is removed, it can be safely set aside. Pull the back half of the transmitter straight off to avoid bending or damaging the battery pins.
4) To increase the spring tension of the control sticks, tighten (turn clockwise) the three socket-cap screws (C), using a 1.5mm hex wrench. To decrease the spring tension of the control sticks, loosen (turn counter-clockwise) the three socket-cap screws (C), using a 1.5mm hex wrench. 5) To make the throttle control stick detents less noticeable, loosen the socket-cap screw on the outer ratchet plate (D), using a 1.5mm hex wrench. To make the throttle control stick detents firmer, tighten the socket-cap screw on the outer ratchet plate (D), using a 1.5mm socket-cap wrench. 6) Some helicopter pilots prefer to eliminate the throttle ratchet completely. To do this, loosen the socket-cap screw on the outer ratchet plate (D), using a 1.5mm hex wrench until the throttle detents can't be felt anymore. Next, tighten the socket-cap screw on the inner throttle plate (E), until you're satisfied with the throttle control stick resistance.
7) When satisfied with the results carefully reinstall the back half of the transmitter, then reinstall the transmitter battery and plug it back in. The battery connector is polarized and can therefore be plugged in only one way. When reinstalling the back half of the transmitter, be very careful that you don't bend or otherwise damage the battery pins (F). These long battery pins should be carefully slid through the matching holes in the back half of the transmitter before pushing it down into place. Any modifications made to the transmitter other than adjusting the control stick tension and changing Operating Modes (see below) will void any and all warranties covered by Airtronics, Inc.
transmitter Operating mode adjustments
The SD-10G transmitter has the ability to operate in four different Modes as shown in the table below. Changing Operating Modes can be done by the user and requires changing the Mode Setting in the System menu, then swapping the throttle ratchets and spring on the control sticks.

memory expansion card
The Memory Expansion Card allows you to store up to 40 models (20 in the SD-10G transmitter and 20 on the Memory Expansion Card). The Memory Expansion Card can be removed and installed into a different SD-10G transmitter, so that model-specific programming data can be shared with fellow SD-10G transmitter owners in the field. When the Memory Expansion Card is installed and Initialized, it is treated as an extension of the SD-10G transmitter's internal model memory, therefore, model-specific programming data can be created, copied, deleted, etc., directly through the various System menu selections. There is no need to access the Memory Expansion Card separately. For more information on installing and initializing the Memory Expansion Card, see page 57. The Memory Expansion Card is proprietary and can be used only with SD-10G transmitters. See your local Airtronics dealer for more information and availability.

The receiver antenna wires consists of two coaxial cables and two reception wires (the thin tip at the end of the coaxial cables). When you mount the receiver antenna wires, do not bend the reception wires. Reception performance decreases if the reception wires are bent. The receiver antenna wires are delicate, therefore, handle with care. Do not pull on the receiver antenna wires with force. Do not cut or extend the receiver antenna wires. The coaxial cables can be bent into gentle curves, however, do not bend the coaxial cables acutely, or repeatedly bend them, or the antenna cores can be damaged. When installed in an electric-powered model, keep the receiver antenna wires as far away from the motor, battery, and electronic speed control (ESC) as possible. When installing the receiver, the antenna reception wires (the thin tip at the end of the coaxial cables) should not come into contact with any carbon or metal components (conductive components). Aircraft fuselages and helicopter frames may contain conductive components. If mounting the receiver surrounded by conductive materials (for example, a carbon fiber fuselage), mount the receiver so that the antenna reception wires can be extended outside of the model. Reception can be blocked if the antenna reception wires are shielded inside a carbon fiber fuselage.
range checking (low power mode)
IMPORTANT The radio control system should be Range Checked prior to the day's first flight and prior to the first flight after a hard landing or after a repair. This will ensure that the transmitter and receiver are communicating properly prior to flight. This ensures the safety of your model, yourself, and the people around you. POWER MODE Low Power Mode Normal Mode TRANSMITTER STATUS Green RF Output Indicator Blinks, Power Selection >LOW, Audible Alarm Red and Green Output Indicators Solid, Power Selection >NORMAL, No Audible Alarm
The Low Power Mode function lowers the transmitter's RF output level to check radio signal reception (Range Check). Use this function to check radio signal reception on the ground, prior to flight.
Low Power Mode can only be Activated with the transmitter turned ON. Low Power Mode cannot be Activated with only the LCD Display turned ON. Activating Low Power Mode 1) Turn the transmitter ON. Verify that SYSTEM is highlighted, then press the ENTER key to display the System menu. If SYSTEM is not highlighted, press the END key until SYSTEM is highlighted.
