2.4 gig and mtronics.
« on: November 25, 2010, 11:22:32 PM »

Hi, can anyone tell me if a 2.4 gig transmitter,will tune in to an Mtronics speed controller,or would the speed controller have to be "tuned in " as normal, as if using a 40meg setup? I am hoping Father Christmas is going to bring me a nice new 2.4 radio, but never having had one before,would like to know if I am going to encounter any problems, as I am NOT very technically minded (a thicko !) Thanks. Mick

I use the GiantCod 2.4 radio set and am now putting these in all my models without any real problems so far.
The transmitter is set up for aircraft and just toggling the throttle lever sorts any problems
This includes Mtronic, ACTion, Electronise and a few other speed controllers.

thanks for that,
I suppose I should have said it was intended for model boats, but I assume they would be both the same to set up. A normal Mtronics speed control, has to be tuned in to the transmitter, and for thickos like me who cant respond quick enough it can take a while! They are brilliant speed controllers though.

Hi Guy's. I have two 15 amp mtronicks in my latest build using a planet 2.4 radio set. If you have to set them just follow the instructions just like using 40 or 27  no problem.

Mick your NOT A THICKO your learning  like all the rest on here .We all start model boating knowing nothing but over the years hopefully learn a lot  am new hav,nt even finished my first boat yet but still like to ask for help and think this is the best place to get it if you was thick your would,nt of came on here and asked the question  I always think of it this way A man who ask,s question is only a fool for a few mins a man  who don't ask question is a fool for life.
