I owned an
Ace Pulse Commander
single-channel unit for a while, and documented the electronics prior to selling it. Photos and the complete operator's
manual can be found at the link above.
Ace R/C manufactured radio control systems and a few airplane models up through about the 1990s, when it was bought
by Thunder Tiger, of Taiwan.

Carpe Diem! (Seize the Day!)

of model building activity. This site has been created to help me chronicle my journey
through a lifelong involvement in model aviation, which
