Default CLC Independence - Radio Equipment

My son and I are building a Chesapeake Light Craft "Indepence" model and I'm a bit confused on what type of electronics we should put into the boat - can anyone suggest a good radio set up. We are making some modifictions to add another servo so we need at least three channels.

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I forgot to post a link for the Independence. It's a 48" long ship with over 1,000 sq inches of sail. The model is produced by Chesapeake Light Craft in Annapolis. I've built a few of the sail boats (1:1 scale) but this is my first time with R/C and electronics

The inexpensive way is to buy a good used Ace Nautical Commander radio. You can post a wanted ad here and other rc forums.
These are great radios and can be converted from the 75MHz to 2.4GHz transmitter. Or you can use both frequencies .
The more expensive but ideal is to buy a good used Graupner MC-19 40MHz radio. These were sold in Europe.
The 40MHz transmitter can be converted to a HiTec 2.4GHz transmitter that will allow full telemetry.

Single transmitter COMPUTER-SYSTEM mc-19
4-language menu. Micro-computer radio control system for 10 control functions (SPCM) (PPM 24: 12 control functions) 4 multi-function menus: Fixed-wing, Helicopter, Boat and Car/Truck.
35 MHz Ref. N°.4821.77
35 MHz-B Ref. N°.4821.77.B
40 MHz Ref. N°.4827.77
41 MHz Ref. N°.4827.41.77

Product information
Information sur les produits
GRAUPNER again sets new standards in High-End radio control technology. World´s first: four-language dialogue menu (German, English, French, Italian). 12 control functions. Simplified assignment of sticks, external switches, proportional controls and trim levers as control functions, multi-function boat / car transmitter without additional external switches or switch modules. Update-capable operating system for a future-proof transmitter. Ultra-Speed Low-Power Single-Chip Micro-Computer, 256 kByte (2Mbit) flash memory, 16 kByte (128 kbit) RAM, 73 ns operating cycle! With integral high-speed precision A/D converter. 3D Rotary Encoder in conjunction with four programming buttons for accurate settings and superb programming convenience. 20 model memories. High-resolution MULTI-DATA GRAPHIC LCD screen ensures accurate monitoring and precise graphic display of curves and characteristic lines. CONVENIENT MODE SELECTOR for easy switching between stick modes 1 - 4 (e.g. throttle right / throttle left). 4 selectable modulation types. SPCM 20 Super-PCM modulation with high system resolution of 1024 steps per control function. For the following receivers: smc-14, smc-19, smc-20, smc-19 DS, smc-20 DS, smc-20 DSYN PCM 20 PCM with system resolution of 512 steps per control function. For the following receivers: mc-12, mc-20, DS 20 mc PPM 18 The most widespread standard transmission method (FM and FMSSS). For the following receivers: C 8 FM, C 12, C 16, C 17, C 19, DS 18, DS 19, DS 20, and the following miniature receivers: XP 10, XP 12 FM, XN 12, XM 16, R 600, R 700, C 6 FM PPM 24 12 control functions are possible with the DS 24 FM S receiver, one of them (freely selectable) as an integral ]Nautic switch module. In this case a module, Order Ref. N°. 4159, is required at the receiver end. At the transmitter all the controls which can be connected can be used to control up to 8 switched functions, i.e. switches, trim switches, sticks and auxiliary analogue controls connected to inputs 5 - 10. Two additional Nautic transmitter modules (Order Ref. N°. 4108 or 4141) can also be installed and operated with the corresponding receiver modules (Order Ref. N°. 4159 or 4142). Even in this configuration there are still 9 functions freely available: normally 1 for steering, 1 for forward / reverse speed, and a further 7 functions for any auxiliary functions you wish. They can be operated using either stick functions including trim, or stick functions and trims as separate (analogue) functions, or analogue inputs (inputs 5 - 10 / switches). This maximum set-up provides 24 reversible switched functions + 2 standard control functions + 7 free function channels. 3 freely programmable mixers for fixed-wing model aircraft, helicopters, boats, cars and trucks. 3-point mixers for throttle, collective pitch and tail rotor plus gyro offset adjustment. These settings can be made separately for each flight phase. Fixed-wing / Heli: Dual Rate / Expo for Ch2 - Ch4 (in each case switchable in common for each channel).


Phase trim for camber-changing flaps, ailerons, elevator, according to model type. Helicopter swashplate mixer for 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-point linkages. Servo travel adjustment for 12 servos, servo reverse, servo centre, servo travel, variable separately for each side of centre. Programmable Fail-Safe for PCM/SPCM. 2 switch-controlled timers, stopwatch, flight time / run time. HELP BUTTON provides valuable information on programming and the currently selected programming menu. Model copy function for all model memories. Comprehensive fixed-wing mixer menu with 12 set-up programs for 2 ailerons and 2 camber-changing flaps (number of servos). Trainer system with total control transfer. Basic fixed-wing model aircraft settings. Motor at Ch1 (idle trim). Tail (type). AIL/FLAP (Ref. N°. of servos). 2nd and 3rd flight phase. Trainer (total control transfer). All adjustments are made at the Teacher transmitter. Basic model helicopter settings. Swashplate type 1 - 4. Rotor direction. Collective pitch min. forward / back. 2nd flight phase + auto-rotation. Trainer (total control transfer). Basic model boat / car settings. An integral Nautic-Expert module can be activated. All physical controls present can be assigned to any function and used to operate up to 8 switched functions, e.g. primary controls, trim switches and stick functions.
