This is Volumes 1 - 3 of Ray's Authoritative DVD Series: TX Theory, Bench Setup, and Flight Trimming.

We’ve made helicopter setup and flight trimming as simple as it can be, because we answer all the “why” questions, then show you the “how.” No matter what your level of experience, this DVD series explains the steps necessary to set up and flight trim your helicopter like an expert!

While we use JR’s 9303 radio and Thunder Tiger’s Raptor 50 Pro helicopter for the examples, the information is totally applicable to any helicopter and any radio. Like Ray’s Authoritative Helicopter Manual, we show you the theory, then implement it through the examples. When you truly understand the “why” of helicopter setup, you can set up ANY radio and ANY machine! Ray's Authoritative DVD Series includes:

VOLUME 1: Transmitter Theory and Setup (1 hr. 43 min.; 47 scenes)
This disk goes through every item in the transmitter menu. After an overview of theory for each menu item, the “armchair” settings are punched into the transmitter. These are the points, curves, and program mixes that can be programmed before you ever work with the helicopter.
