CLONEPAC memory module for Futaba 8UAF/8UAP: The Futaba 8UAF or 8UAP radio control transmitter has an optional memory module, the DP-16K CAMPac module, that doubles the model storage capacity (to 16 models from 8) and allows you to save programs or transfer programs to another transmitter. The module can be purchased for about $90-$100 from hobby suppliers.

Low-cost IR data link Controls model train: 03/22/99 Electronic Design - Ideas for Design / For low-speed local data transfer, it’s tough to beat the simplicity of an IR link, which is so common in TV remote controls. This circuit idea combines a transmitter/receiver pair with low-cost.

One IC 2 Tones Siren Double Tone Police Sound Single Tone Old Ambulance Sound: This circuit is intended for children fun, and is suitable to be installed on bicycles, battery powered cars and motorcycles, but also in models and other games. With SW1 positioned as shown in the circuit diagram it reproduces the typical dual tone sound of Police or Fire-brigade cars, by the oscillation of IC1A and IC1B gates.

Plane Locator Beeper:
Plane Locator Beeper #2: Here is another device to help you locate your downed R/C sailplane in the bushes and weeds. Similar to the other design, this circuit plugs into a spare servo socket on your receiver, and it is a pulse omission detector. The alarm sounds when pulses originating from your transmitter are no longer being received--turn off your transmitter to turn on the alarm and help you find your plane. This circuit is simpler than the other design, is much easier to build, but is not quite as specific. While the other design tests for a specific frequency of pulses, this design is less picky, and may not work quite as well in areas with more radio frequency background noise.
Precision Digital Altimeter: The current concept incorporates a wireless transmitter and receiver and is thought to be used for remote controlled airplanes or appliances with two separate parts. In other words, we have one dedicated transmitter (acquisition, filtering) and one dedicated receiver part (user-interface, look-up table, calibration, storage), capable of being connected together with any physical layer, e.g. wired, wireless, infrared. If you want to build a standalone altimeter/variometer just for hiking or mountaineering, this setup can obviously be simplified by omitting the wireless components.
