New Castle Telemetry Link for Spektrum S-Bus 

http://www.modelengines.com.au/libraries/images/eMarketing May 2016/cc-tel-spektrum_695.jpg

A couple of months back, Castle Creations released a Telemetry Link to enable telemetry data from Castle ESC's to be displayed on compatible Futaba radios with support for S.BUS2 protocol.

Model Engines have now received the Spektrum® X-Bus version of the Castle Telemetry Link so that modellers with Spektrum® radios with support for X-BUS protocol can now also experience the advantage of real-time data telemetry between their Castle ESC and transmitter.

Telemetry advancements are rapidly emerging and Castle has collaborated with the radio experts at Spektrum ® to bring to market an incredibly useful and easy to use Telemetry product.

http://www.modelengines.com.au/libraries/images/eMarketing May 2016/cc-tel-spektrum[6]_695.jpg
Air enthusiasts now have a means to receive and view telemetry data on compatible Spektrum® radios when using their favorite Castle ESC’s.
 

http://www.modelengines.com.au/libraries/images/eMarketing May 2016/cc-tel-spektrum[3]_400.jpg

Features

Telemetry data can be displayed on the transmitter screen, or for parameters where users only want to be notified when a defined threshold is exceeded, (battery voltage, ESC temperature, etc.), a configured vibration or sound alert from the radio can be utilized.

There is no requirement for additional Telemetry Sensors to be purchased when using the Castle Telemetry Link.

There are up to 7 specific data points available (varies with ESC) and users can enable/disable data points through Castle Link™.
http://www.modelengines.com.au/libraries/images/eMarketing May 2016/X-Bus-diagram-Internal-Gov_695.jpg

Requirements

Compatible SPEKTRUM® radios will support X-BUS protocol.

It is also necessary to utilize a compatible Spektrum® Telemetry Module. (See compatibility chart)

The Castle ESC must have the ability to accept a bidirectional communication protocol that gives it the ability to transmit real-time telemetry feedback.

This feature is called Link Live™and needs to be enabled on compatible ESC’s using Castle Link™.

In stock now in the Model Engines' warehouse.

 New Ares Alara Glider with Hitec Red - Now in Stock 

http://www.modelengines.com.au/libraries/images/eMarketing May 2016/alara_695.jpg

As an aspiring RC pilot, you need an trainer plane that checks off a number of crucial boxes.

You need It to be easy to fly and forgiving of basic errors.

You'll want It to be tough, able to withstand some punishment, and you'll demand solid everyday reliability.

In addition, a good flight duration, speedy assembly, convenient transport and easy storage will be high on your list.

To coin a phrase, a 'beginner friendly' trainer plane is what you're looking for, and the Ares Alara is the perfect choice.

Supplied 100% factory-assembled, the Alara's advanced EPO airframe is both strong and light, while the rear-mounted motor protects the power system from inevitable heavy landings.

Offering super low-speed handling characteristics and a benign stall, this is a trainer plane that's been designed to look after you, giving you time to react, and learn at a comfortable pace.

Technically advanced, the Alara incorporates a Hitec Red 2.4GHz radio system that's compatible with all current 2.4GHz Hitec aircraft transmitters.

Moreover, to suit your needs, two convenient versions of the model are available, both incorporating Hitec Red protocol: choose either Ready-To-Fly (including a Mode 1 or Mode 2 Hitec Red-enabled transmitter and receiver) or Pair-To-Fly (supplied with a Hitec Red receiver that's compatible with your existing Hitec transmitter).

Every Alara comes with a powerful factory-installed motor and ESC, a quiet and efficient 6-blade propeller, quality servos, a 1500mAh 3S LI-Po battery, plus a DC balancing charger and AC adapter.

So, for first-time flyers looking to get started, the Alara checks off all the essential boxes.

Sport flyers, meanwhile, will appreciate its gentle, glider-like characteristics and basic aerobatic ability.

Make your dreams of R/C flight come true with an Ares Alara.
