Power is supplied using the standard 7.4vdc receiver pack with a Dean’s plug for quality on and off connection. Connect the Mag brake controller to your throttle servo, front and rear magnets and to the receiver. Setup is simple, download the free Android or IOS application, power up your car, pair and adjust using their powerful class 1 Bluetooth, capable of up to 300feet depending on your model of phone. The first release in from July with versions for the RC8B4, TLR 8ightX and MBX8R expected with others to follow and for 1/5 scale in December of this year.
