DIGITAL PROPORTIONAL ELECTRONIC SPEED CONTROLLERS.
RCS HAS THE BEST WARRANTY & AFTER SALES SERVICE IN THE BUSINESS.
HOBBY KING & E-SKY R/C CAN ALSO BE USED. THEY MUST USE THE # SIG-ADAPT PCB TO CONNECT TO THE ESC.
Please note. The Spektrum & Hobby King RX's can now be "bound" when plugged into the ESC.
This will make transferring helper locos from one TX to another much simpler.
RCS ESC's ARE DESIGNED FOR ADVANCED OPERATION
& ALL FEATURE:
● # OMEGA-3s uses SPEKTRUM DSM2 R/C. RX plugs into decoder pcb. Servo leads not needed.
Four channels of a 4 - 9 Channel R/C are required for operation.
WHAT THE TX LEVERS ACTUALLY DO.
|The ELEVATOR stick controls Direction set with a press & release for forwards or reverse. Variable momentum control allows precise application of Brake Apply & Brake Release.|
|The THROTTLE stick provides full throw Digital Proportional (DP) control of the locomotive speed. This gives twice the precision of speed control when compared to the centre off single stick DP controllers.|
|The AILERON stick & RUDDER stick each control 2 x Momentary or Latch ON-OFF accessory functions such as Whistle/Horn & Bell, Notch 8/Drift and Dynamic brake/Blowdown etc. Total of four functions available.|
Channel #'s 5 & 6 etc are free for added mechanical controls such as uncoupling.
Or, with an extra # RC-TRIG, 2 more sound triggers or Ditch Lighting effects.
COMPARE # RCS-PnP FEATURES WITH 4 POPULAR R/C SYSTEMS.

The RCS ESC’s have an LED on the decoder pcb & directional constant brightness lighting outputs.
When the loco & TX have been switched ON, these lights show that the TX and RX have recognised each other.
The lights are also used for speed calibrating and programming the system options.
All battery packs state a NOMINAL voltage on the pack.
When freshly charged the actual voltage can exceed the NOMINALvoltage.
eg. An 18 volt Ni-Cd pack can read 24 volts when fully charged.
RCS takes into account the excess voltage when batteries are freshly charged when listing what is the maximum voltage you can use.
Likewise the NOMINAL voltage also takes into account the likely voltage drop when discharging.
It is the NOMINALvoltage on the battery pack that is the maximum & minimum voltage you can use.
The pcb’s have appropriate heat sinking. A cooling fan may be required for use at higher voltages & temperatures.
SEE THE ACCESSORIES LIST FOR INFORMATION ON RCS LOCO INSTALLATION KITS & BATTERIES.
RCS DOES NOT PROVIDE PRINTED INSTRUCTIONS FOR ESC'S UNLESS SPECIFICALLY ASKED TO DO SO.
PDF instruction booklets are available for the brand of R/C being used + FIVE different sound systems.

THE NEW METHOD OF CALIBRATING & PROGRAMMING SHOULD ELIMINATE MOST OPERATIONAL PROBLEMS.
