Here is what Jim had to say:

"Hi, I flew my Dynam Waco bipe in a two day event this past weekend. I had installed the smaller unit you sent me. It was a HUGE hit of the show. In fact, it won pilot's choice award. The sound was awesome! EASILY heard in spite of 35mph wind gusts."

Congrats to Jim!!!!!
Congrats from Sweden aswell Jim!!!

Last Sat a couple of my club members asked if I had turned the volume down, I said no and went on flying. Today I started to wonder if the volume was lower so I checked the volume control and over the past few weeks the control had backed off about 1/2 a turn. It was backing off so slow that to my ears I could not tell so now the control is blocked with a chunk of foam so that can't happen again. Now that its back I can hear the difference, amazing the difference a 1/2 turn makes.

Yes, half a turn will make quite a difference. Was this purely from vibration from the plane, or just bumping it from moving things in the plane?

Thanks guys, I am very interested in your system. Any distribs in Australia or do you ship direct? I understand it just runs off a Y lead to throttle and uses the LiPo for power. What is the current draw? Thanks

Hi Doug,
Currently I don't have a distributor in Australia, so I have been selling directly. I am very low right now on stock, having some parts delivery problems. I do have a reseller in NZ though, and I believe he has stock. His name is Grant from CThru Digital. Give him a shout at graant@xtra.co.nz, he would be more than happy to help you out I am sure.

Current draw is low, and depends on the model. The Budget and Pro both draw a max of about 15W, and .85A or so. The Ultra draws more around 30W and close to 2A.

Sure thing. I have I think 3 or 4 A units in. All out of stock on the B. I am sure Grant has both in stock. Whenever you are ready.

Steel Speaker Grills

Hi guys,

I just ordered a couple of "SAMPLE Steel Speaker Grill Primed Gray: CG2PSAMPLE" from SpeakerWorks.com Here is the link: http://www.speakerworks.com/SAMPLE_C...cg2psample.htm

This is described as: "3" x 4" Sample of our perforated 22 gauge steel with 1/16" holes . The samples are primed with gray primer and ready for you to paint. "

Seems like this would be the perfect size to cover up Mr. RC Sound module speaker installations on foam planes. There is enough material in 3 x 4 inches to provide a flange that would match the curve of the fuselage with a couple of tabs that would be bent in to secure the grill in place. My thought is these could be held in place with magnets or tape or both. The nice thing about the steel grills is that they have both sound transparency and structural strength.

I have ordered four samples and plan to retrofit the P-47 (Ultra - 2 grills) and P-51 (Pro - 1 grill) mounts. I am happy with the mount I have for the Bucker Jungman. However, I have a fourth sound module that I plan to install in a Durafly A-1 Skyraider.

I will be travelling for the next several days but will keep you posted when I get back to the workshop and make some of these mods.

Regards,

Jackson

Another thought for mounting would be to add some wood inserts and screw the grills into place with self-tapping sheet metal screws.

Multi Engine Sounds!

Hey guys! A question that I have been asked many times is " Do you have a multi engine sounds?". The answer was no, unitl now. A milti engine sound just does not sound right from one speaker. The sounds over ride each other, and it is not pretty. I have long maintained that more than one module would produce decent multi engine sounds, but just have not had the chance to sit down and do some testing. Although the video does not show a finished product, it is a proof of concept. Creating a finished product, similar to the Ultra will be easy.

Have a look at the video and let me know what you think!!!!

I wish I could. I don't have any Spectrum equipment, so I am not familiar with the setup menus and stuff. I think you may be able to mix it with a switch, and set the travel for about 3% or so. That should run the startup, and put it in an idle until the throttle is moved. I can't say for sure though.

Hi
Cannot use chan 7 on RX because TX only has 6 ch

Mix Thr with free channel ( gear 5 or flaps 6)
Always ON (inhibits switch on TX) Sound unit to slavech, no Y
Set subtrim on slave ch ( 5 or 6) until enginsound is about to start.
Throttleup should no give startdound snd then prop starts
Needs some finetuning but works like a charm
