Radio Tuner without an inductor coil

  1. May 14, 2004 #1
    A friend and I are trying to build a radio controlled airplane, but an LCR circuit tuner would be too heavy. Does anybody know of a way to make a tuner without an inductor coil?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    what frequency?

    you may be able to use either a different capacitor-inductor. you may also be able to add an active device with a capacitor to simulate the iductor.
