SkyRC’s new Q200 AC/DC multi-chemistry charger offers a total of four independent outputs to charge and discharge a multitude of RC batteries. The devise is housed in a compact case, measuring 197x182x71mm and it features a 480×320 dot colour LC display, 5-button menu operation and a temperature-controlled internal fan unit. Channel A and B offer up to 10A of charge current while C and D allow for up to 5A of charge current as the internal power supply makes for a charge circuit power of up to 100W combined. The charger is usable with up to 6S LiXX and LiHV packs, up to 15-cell NiXX batteries as well as up to 20V Pb batteries and with SkyRC’s Charge Master software the device can be coupled to a Windows-based PC in order to control and monitor a variety of charge and discharge parameters. On top of this the charger is also controllable using the company’s own iOS or Android mobile devices.
Coming from SkyRC is the iMax B6AC balancer charger and discharger. The updated V2 version offers additional features while being more accurate at the same time. One of the new features is a user-adjustable terminal voltage and the device can now also have its firmware upgraded using a Windows-based PC. On top of that the V2 allows to monitor the battery’s internal resistance and an automatic charging current limit, capacity limit, temperature threshold and charging time limit make for additional safety.
New from SkyRC comes the D200 dual output 200W AC/DC multi-chemistry charger with soldering iron output. Housed in a compact case the charger offers 5-button menu operation, a large back-lit display and it can handle up to 6S LiXX and up to 15 cell NiXX battery packs along 2 to 24V Pb batteries. The dual output design allows for up to 20A charge current on the main output and up to 10A on the secondary channel and as a novelty the device comes with a 60W soldering iron that can be plugged directly into the charger. The charger offers several features such as a built-in balancer, 20 charge/discharge profiles, a battery voltage meter, battery resistance meter, end voltage adjustment, a LiHV mode and the ability to perform software updates and remote controlling using SkyRC’s Charge Master software. Included with the device come the 60W/450°C soldering iron, one pencil and one chisel soldering tip.
SkyRC have introduced the S60 multi-chemistry AC charger. Housed in a compact case the 60W charger offers several charge programs including a dedicated high voltage setting for the latest generation of LiPo cells that allow a charge end voltage of 4.35V per cell. Several safety features including capacity and automatic charging current limit allow for a convenient use of the device that sports a back-lit display and a 4-button operation. Furthermore the charger can be coupled to Windows-based PCs to increase the versatility and for software updates. The package is rounded out by an internal balancer and a build-in fan unit.

SkyRC introduce the D100 AC/DC dual output multi-chemistry charger. Offering two independent 100W outputs the device is housed in a compact case with a large cooling fan, tilt stands and a large, back-lit display. The menu is operated using five buttons and the charger sports two internal balancer and temperature sensor ports, as well as a micro USB and a 2.1A/5V USB port. The charger offers several safety features such as an automatic charge current and capacity limit, it can store up to ten different charge/discharge profiles, it checks the battery’s internal resistance and allows to adjust the charge end voltage including a new LiHV mode for the latest generation of LiPo batteries that are good for a charge end voltage of 4.35V. On top of that the D100 can be controlled using SkyRC’s Charge Master PC software or the Wi-Fi module and your iOS or Android smartphone.
SkyRC introduce the Toro Beast, a dedicated brushless speed controller for large scale electric vehicles. The 200A rated ESC is usable with 4S to 8S LiPo battery packs and it is housed in a sturdy aluminium case for protection and improved heat dissipation. Mounting lugs help to securely fasten the motor to the chassis or radio plate. An internal BEC system allows for a standard 6V or high voltage 7.4V output and a whooping 15A to feed even the most power-hungry large scale servos. Also part of the package is a data logging function that measures and records parameters such as battery voltage, amp draw, motor RPM and the controller’s temperature. On top of that the speed is widely adjustable using the SkyLink PC interface, the WiFi Module or SkyRC’s Progbox.
SkyRC introduce a twin motor cooling fan kit for large scale brushless motors with a diameter of 55mm. The part made from heat-resistant material offers a heatsink design, it incorporates two pre-wired 40mm highspeed 7.4v fans and it easily mounts to the motor using two zip ties. The compact design allows to efficiently reduce the running temperature of a wide range of motors used in 1/5th scale models.
New from SkyRC comes the Motor Analyser, a device to test and fine-tune electric brushless motors. The motor tester offers KV measurement, voltage, RPM and Amp draw tests as well as timing and hall sensor checks together with a noise level test that allows to draw conclusions on the conditions of the ball bearings. Coming in a sturdy aluminium case the device sports a back-lit display, jog dial menu operation and it includes an array of wires such as a sensor cable, motor connection wires and power input adapters.
