The PowerSystem Competition 12 combines three Smart-Fly products into one compact, light system. The unit has twelve channels and is a perfect match for the JR R1221 or the Futaba R6014 receivers. The JR R1222 is not recommended for this or any of our other units.
The unit will also work with receivers with less than 12 channels. The unit will boost the servo control voltage to 5.0V for better compatibility with a variety of servos. The unit uses Deans Ultra Plug connectors for power and accepts power from two 2-cell Li-ion or Li-poly batteries. The unit has a built in BatShare to protect against one bad battery affecting the other battery. Power for the receiver is brought straight from the battery connector to a filter and regulator that supplies clean 5.0V power to the receiver. The servo regulator is adjustable from 5.5V to 6.5V and is connected by a large power bus to the servo output connectors resulting in no voltage drop due to wiring or connector resistance. The PowerSystem Competition 12 comes in two flavors, standard and Turbo. The standard version is designed for 85cc to 140cc size planes and the regulator can supply 7.5 amps of continuous current with 15 amp peaks. The Turbo version is meant for 150cc and larger size planes and the regulator can supply 17.5 amps of continuous current with 35 amp peaks. The unit also includes our Ignition Cutoff as a built-in feature. This provides an optically isolated ignition kill function for gas engines with electronic ignition modules. We also sell the units without the Cutoff receiver module and fiber-optic cable for jet applications.
