It is ok to advertise here (with some limits: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/wlist.php?do=post )

Maybe you can post your contact information, price, ordering, photos of the unit, etc.?


Is it possible to connect two units in parallel, for common control from one stick?

Thank you Patmat2350 for the information

It is not for sale at the moment later maybe if somebody asks for it.
It is in the point technically. It works perfectly but we have to make tests with users. It is more serious

You can put two modules on the same joy-stick ( Y )
Either if you have a programmable radio, you can couple, or not, pods

It's perfect for the laborer of tugs

Very nice,

What type material are the pods made of?
It appears in the video that the control stick has been modified. Is that an add on piece, or does it require a specific radio?
What's the availability?

Pods is pods GRAUPNER but any pod is possible.

Handles are slightly modified

Any radio 6 ways suits even one bottom of the range, any frequency.

It will be available after the tests by designers, in June, 2014

You will be warned( prevented) in the comment planned for the sellers as advises(recommends) it Patmar

While I can not make it to Gazouland for the sea trials, I would love to see additional
video of the drive holding position in relation to the joystick, and also ESC proportion
compared to position of the joystick. It would also be nice to see the electronic board
size, and connections.

Looking forward to seeing more from Gazouland event at the end of the month.

Interesting, Now I am wondering how that might work with, say a DX6 spektrum radio...

Hello

Here is a photo of the module SEAPOD



The green led indicates the switched on, the red led indicates a low battery.

We had some comments
we bring some wanted régulations

It is the ideal system to command tug boats ASD or SDM

Hi Gazou,

Have you established a price for the SEAPOD yet?
Are the Graupner Z-DRIVES still available, given their financial problems?
Is anyone other than Graupner making Z-DRIVE units?
If I remember correctly, I think Phoneman2005 was working on manufacturing some Z-drives, but I haven't heard or seen anything on that in a while.

Bauer-Modelle.de is marketing schottel drives.

http://www.bauer-modelle.de/modules/..._id=151&page=2

_____________________________________________

I typically use both vertical channels as throttles.
One for each drive.

How does this work for dual throttles and steering.

Hello

Yes naturally if you have two pods are needed two systems

You can use any mark of pod, either pods which you make you even



Z-DRIVE on my EDDA FONN, is FABRICE, a friend, who made the Z-DRIVE







Principle of installation.

You can put the engine of position under platinum

Take away the engine of position and put a belt

Or put the engine horizontally and put cogs of angle. Inconvenience cogs (brass or plastic(plastic art)) make of the noise

I suppose to simplify my question, How does this work with four channels or two joysticks?
There are three to six plugs when using one to two units.
How are they arranged in regards to two joysticks?
