The future of speed control is here

2015 brings new releases from Mtroniks!

The start of 2015 has brought with it the release of the new 24V Loco10 controller.
This new version of the already popular 12V Loco10 controller has been a long time coming, we had been receiving requests for a 24V version for the last two to three years but only recently felt that the technology needed to do it ‘nicely’ had become available.
The 24V version has all the same features as the original 12V Loco10 controller, such as built in cruise control, motor current limiters and of course, the legendary, 100% waterproof design. The main difference and the one that our customers have been asking for is the ability to run the controller at higher voltages. The new 24V Loco10 controller is happy running anywhere between 12.0V and 24.0V making it perfect for those models that run on voltages higher than the usual 12.0V.
A LOT of testing was done prior to the release of this new controller, in fact, in an attempt to test the unit to destruction we installed it in a ride-on Locomotive and attached a 3000kg load……………. we failed to kill the controller, it instead pulled the load and us away from the station!
The result is the new ‘Viper Loco10 HV’ available now from our website or authorised dealers.

New 75A marine controller!

The long awaited replacement for the Viper Super Marine speed controller is now available!

When the 75A version of the Viper marine controller range was withdrawn earlier this year it did not go down well! The reasons for this were down to advances in technology that meant we were in a position to ‘do it better’, we decided to re-design the 75A marine controller to take advantage of these advances in technology and give the modeler a much better speed controller!

The results, although having taken longer to complete than we anticipated, are impressive. The new Viper Marine75 controller is an extremely solid, reliable and powerful controller that we are very happy with. We are sure it will prove to be a success with all those modelers who have been waiting ………….. a long time for its re-release!

New 24V Marine controllers released!

The long awaited release of the new 24V marine controllers has now arrived!

The new 24V Viper marine HV speed controllers will be available to buy from the 1st of December 2014.

A lot of work has gone into making sure this new range of controllers are as easy to use as the very popular standard 12V Viper marine controllers, in fact, the set up and operation of these new 24V versions is exactly the same as the already very popular 12V Vipers! Ease of use and reliability are the two main criteria we work on when designing new marine controllers, the fact that they are packed with features, 100% waterproof, lightweight and still very small in size is very nice too!!

Our most sincere thanks to Mtroniks!

Mtroniks has been sponsoring our annual regatta in Portland, Oregon, USA for the past five years. Their reliability and service has been impeccable. The props that we use, any year, during an event have all used Mtronik ESC, and have been very dependable, and even the Springer tug built for public use by children has been able to take the abuse of constantly switching from forward to reverse and still be able to make rescues of other boats on the pond.

With matching plugs the ESC are easily switched from one apparatus to the next as events evolve or change, each year to create new and exciting events for the participants.

Our Portland, Regatta started off as a small event, and as the event grew so did our expenses.

Mtroniks sponsorship has help us raise money to pay for permit fees and awards.

Each year we try to change what the modeler tug skippers must do as a boat handling challenge.

Whether it is just the maneuvering course, barge handling, or crane barge spotting many of the tugboat skippers have come to rely on Mtroniks to for low speed precision handling. People recognize how well the equipment works, and Mtroniks has become the “go to” speed control when someone in the Pacific Northwest, the West coast, and much of the United States needs an ESC. And every year, model skippers from Long Beach to Vancouver BC. Look forward to this August event at the Tualatin Commons.

New 24V Viper

Due to the success and popularity of our 12V Viper Marine speed controllers, we took the decision to set to work on a 24v version.

The 24V versions will have all the same popular features of the existing 12V controllers and be available in the same model types, 15A, 20A, 25A and 40A. The new 24V Viper controllers are due for launch in Autumn of 2014.
