New SIDUS 3-servo timer control board and F1B electronic pylon
A new timer control board capable to drive 3-servos is now joining the Sidus family electronic timers.
I would also like to introduce a new F1B 3-servo pylon designed to host the above control board. Two servos allow to change left and right wing incidence separately. The third servo handles the delayed prop start, the tail plane incidence and the rudder angles through a tiny aluminum disc that is stepped to release arms. The total weight of the ready-to-fly electronic pylon is under 35 grams with 3 Dymond-D47 precision micro servos. It is available separately or as complete front end.
