remote controllable transponder by Stu Fields
Anyone know of a transponder that can have the codes switched from a remote set of switches and a remote Ident button? I guess I'm asking if there are access points in a connector where this could be done, or has some whiz already done this? My helicopter likes it when I keep my hands on the...
