Forge Electronics Dual Function Profiler - Bomb Drop Version
Electric free flight is clean and quiet, ideal for the 21st century environment.
The huge electric RC market ensures that components such as motors and ESCs for free flight are readily available and totally reliable.
Battery technology has progressed such that the weight of an electric power train can be similar or better than conventional glow or diesel power.
Accurate and repeatable control of motor power and run timing make for enjoyable frustration-free flying. This dual function profiler has been designed and developed so that sports flyers can enjoy all these advantages at a realistic price.
The primary function of this timer is to set the profile of the motor run via an ESC (power, run and decay times).
The secondary function is to drive a servo to operate a user supplied bomb drop mechanism.
The motor power is set by a single turn potentiometer and the motor run, decay periods and bomb drop times are set by a simple push button/LED interface.
- Start delay: 5 seconds
- Motor soft start: 3 seconds
- Motor run duration: adjustable 2 to 30 seconds, set in 2 second increments
- Motor power: adjustable from 0 to full throttle by potentiometer
- Power decay: adjustable 2 to 30 seconds, set in 2 second increments
- Bomb drop:- adjustable 4 to 30 seconds, set in 2 second increments
- Push button immediately stops the motor at any point during the flight profile
- Duration settings are saved in memory, so a single button push serves to repeat a flight
- Unique CONFIG mode for setting up ESCs without additional equipment (programming card or Rx/Tx otherwise required)
Most orders are shipped via Royal Mail’s Tracked 48 service.
For larger or heavier orders, we use UKMail/DHL to deliver your package on a Next Working Day service.
Shipping is free to UK Mainland addresses for orders over £30.00, otherwise we charge £6.00 for Royal Mail Tracked 48 parcels and £12.00 for UKMail/DHL Nest Working Day.
Items that fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters (59cm x 17cm x 15cm weighing less than 2kg) can be sent to most countries outside the UK.
For example up to 3 of our smaller 18” wingspan kits can fit into one of these parcels.
A parcel like this currently costs around £14 to Europe and around £18 to send to the USA and will take up to 3 weeks to arrive. This is because Royal Mail hands over the parcel to the local Post Office service for your country who have to clear it through customs and then deliver it to you.
The Royal Mail tracking code also transfers over to the tracking for your country’s postal service.
For items that do not fit within Royal Mail International Tracked Medium Parcel parameters, we use standard international couriers such as DHL, FedEx and UPS.
These companies use something called volumetric weights to calculate the cost of shipping.
For example, a Balsa Basics RC bundle kit that measures 102cm x 34cm x 16cm and weighs 2.5 kg is actually calculated at 14kg!
This makes these very expensive to send outside the UK - a large kit can cost nearly £40 to send to France.
