Fahrtregler für Schiffsmodelle
Every electric motor for a model ship requires a suitable speed controller. Speed controllers continuously regulate the speed of the model ship's motor. Only when the model controller is connected to the motor and the receiver of the remote control, the model ship becomes a real RC model. In our store are also available speed controllers that can regulate the speed of the drive of up to two engines of a RC model. A small fan should be included to cool the electronics.
For each RC ship the right controller
To select the right controller for an RC ship, the motor ratings must be accurately determined. One third of the rated power of the motor should be added to the power values of the controller as a safety buffer. With this value, the appropriate speed controller can be selected and connected to the motor of the model ship. When selecting the controller, it is important to distinguish between brushless motors and brushed motors. Both types of controllers are available in our store. In our Quicrun series, hobbyists will find high-quality speed controllers that are guaranteed to make any model ship a highlight and are ideally suited for RC ships.
The equipment of the speed controllers
For a clean start and control of the speed, the electronics of the speed controller must function properly and a comprehensive equipment is available. This includes a microprocessor in the controller, which controls the model ship. A special boat mode allows the model ship to move in special directions, such as forward only or forward-reverse. To ensure that nothing goes wrong when using the speed controller, a waterproof housing, low-voltage protection and overheating protection provide greater safety when driving with the models. The power supply of the model controller is via LiPo or NiMH batteries. Many speed controllers do not require complex programming, because they automatically adjust to the remote control when switched on. The controllers are therefore optimal for many hours of fun on the water.
