D12 - RADIO - I hear about the Tx switches being On or Off, but which way
is which ?
accepted convention says that all switches on a radio should be
pointing AWAY (which is known as OFF) from the pilot when the
aircraft is ready for take off. This is because it is so much
easier to quickly scan your radio before starting to fly to ensure
everything is set up correctly, and you are not going to get a nasty
The only 2
normal possible exceptions to this are the Throttle hold switch,
which is only turned OFF immediately before you take off to ensure
that the motor cannot start until you really want it to do so, and
the Idle up switch, which again is only switched on immediately
before take off to spool a helicopters main blades up to full speed
before it takes off.
switches AWAY from you are OFF, switches TOWARDS you are ON
