Im looking to start a UAV project based on the Dynam Hawk Sky
which I had posted a day or so back. I got a lot of comments on the radio system saying its junk, and cannot be used because it does not have a 5th or AUX channel for the AutoPilot. As an 18 year old working at RadioShack, I cant really afford a new radio system let alone the components for AutoPilot, but I figure if I put a little money away every check or so I could have myself a UAV built up before Christmas. (An early Christmas present for myself if you will. c=) So I will be using the stock radio gear. Though its advertised as 35mhz, I got a confirmation from a recent buyer of the plane that it is 72mhz as presumed by others in my last post.
My question is:
Could i Sacrifice my Rudder's channel on the RX for use in the AutoPiolot beings that the plane im using has ailerons?
and maybe even mod my TX to disconnect the rudder's control input, drill a small hole and wire it to a simple toggle switch?
Any help would be appreciated.
