RBT Pot Support

The pots used in the RBT have a rated life of 20 000 operations. Although we’d like this to be greater we haven’t found a manufacturer that can supply long life pots with the 50′ Read More

Pro-160 / 360 to JSK-100 wiring

This diagram shows how to hook up one of our JSK-100 joysticks to the Pro-160 / 360. The Pro-160 / 360 should be set to volt mode and joystick mode, and then use pot learn Read More

RBT Plug Alignment

Our RBT hand throttle is fitted with an 8 pin DIN plug which is inserted into a corresponding 8 pin socket. The plug should be correctly aligned with the socket before it is pushed in. Read More

RBT Pot Rotation

After extended use we have seen a few cases where the potentiometer fitted to our RBT series of hand control boxs have rotated slightly in their mounting brackets. The symptom is that the motor will Read More

Customised Arc Potentiometers

We occasionally get asked about potentiometers with operational arcs that are different to the standard 270′ or our own custom 50′ version. Rob Smallwood gave us this idea which involves using a log pot such Read More

Radio Receiver Fault

This problem deserves a place in the knowledgebase if only because we posted a lot of equipment backwards and forwards before we found the solution. The system; 2 x DNO-10, DMR-203, Ex 2.4 GHz radio Read More

DMR-203 Drop-Out Fault

This dmr-203 drop-out fault was one of the strangest ones I’ve seen for a while, as it took so long to solve it deserves a place in the knowledgebase. The system; VTX-75-24, DMR-203, Spektrum DX Read More

Tacho Set-Up

Tacho generator systems can seem quite complicated: they are closed loop feedback systems where the Tacho generator (perhaps a small permanent magnet motor) is connected to the main motor shaft so that the two turn Read More

DMR-203: Use with PRO-150 Controllers

The DMR-203 may be used with Pro-150 controllers. There are two ways of doing this. One involves a slight modification if the DMR but has simpler wiring. The second does not involve modifying the DMR, Read More

Joystick Suppliers

There are a number of joystick suppliers that we know of and we’ve listed them below. In the UK: RS components Their part number 506-3602 is a good place to start, versions can be ordered Read More
