NOTICE

  • Internal silicon rubber damper might not suit for all RC model etc. You might need an external damper base on the actual conditions.
  • The flat cables in the device were fixed by glue. This is for providing more reliability. Please do not take apart of them with simply pulling.
  • While inserting cables into the ports, please notice that the power cable must not insert to the wrong port. This will burn the IO port.
