MTK37/24 Series  RC Military Truck Controller

To upgrading Heng Long 1/16 Military Truck into

proportional radio control with IR battle, Light and realistic sound Effect

 

Overview

- MTK series controller uses 4 channels or 10-CH S.BUS RC system to control 1/16 R/C truck forward/backward movement, turning

- Miniature  design allowed your to keep interior of diver cabin

- 7A Propulsion Motor ESC *2

- Max.3W sound output power

-Safety shutoff prevents unwanted movement while signal lost

- Maximum of 5 channel of sound effect can be generated at the same time, such as

  • Repairing tank

  • Machine gun

  • 2nd machine gun

  • Hydraulic sound( for ESC1 and ESC2 ) 

  • Turret rotation

  • Engine start

  • Engine revving

  • Engine stop

  • Turn indicator

  • Horn

  • Air discharge

  • Reverse

  • Incoming( for IR battle)

  • Hit( for IR battle)

  • Destroyed( for IR battle)

  • MG incoming

  • MG Hit
