Thumbnail Filmstrip of RT+ Transmitter - 216 MHz - Leg & Tail Mount, Uses the Reliable 1/3N Battery Images
DescriptionThe RT+ is designed around the reliable 1/3N battery which gives it the unique shape and size. With its longer battery life and powerful signal, it was developed to be primary a leg mount for larger shortwings and longwings (18 oz birds and up). The RT+ was the first of a new generation of transmitters with a short, safe, half-length antenna, yet no loss in power. It is also ideal as a secondary (backup) transmitter to the PowerMax tail mount for larger hawks.
