As many of you know I have been flying Weatronic 2.4Ghz with my Graupner MC24 tranmsitters since the beginning of August 2009. The performance of this system in nothing sort of outstanding. In range checks on low power setting I get at least 3 times the manufacturers range of 90 to 100 paces. (I get 270m with 10ch Micro and 330m in the 12-22 in model on the ground) Ground range at full power is stated as greater than 3,000metres or 5,000 meters with the patch aerials on the Gizmo 12/22R Receivers. Purchasing from the factory is OK but now we have a main agent in the UK, Ace Jets at Grantham run by Martyn Little who also has flown Weatronic 2.4 since 2009 when it came out and the 35Meg versions for a number of years before that. They have a website Ace Jets .com.
Ace Jets have a wide range of the Weatronic system in stock plus extensive knowledge of the programming of the same. They now have the BAT60 transmitter in stock and are taking orders for the tray type BAT64 that will be on sale after Christmas subject to a lot of pre orders in the pipeline. These new Transmitters work with all the existing Weatronic receivers with unlimited channels only limit is servo outlets so a Gizmo 30 would be a 30 channel receiver in the old system. I have just 24 receivers and two MC24 transmitters with the DV4 Bluetooth module. My new BAT64 is on order with Ace Jets. The Gizmo receivers work great on 3 cell A123 packs of either 2500 or 5000 capacity. I generally only use 5,000 when the additional weight is required up front in a big jet. 2,500 is plenty even for 8911 and 8711 servos as the C value is so high 60 I believe on genuine A123 batteries.
This new Weatronic system is in my view the best on the market with the next best way behind it. The old modules on a MC24 were un-matched but these new BAT transmitters are from another planet.
