MIBO Drift King Gyro

MIBO has introduced a new Drift King Gyro that is a new generation among gyros of its category.  Racers may have come across gain curve settings (PCA, QUICK, Gain curve etc.) on a top-end gyros already but until now, it was in higher price range and harder to set up.  This function, however, moves the RWD drift machines driving to a next level.  Setting the gain level is not just about compromise between enough stabilisation and not losing steering response, thanks to it.  It allows the smoothest possible ride, with sensitive control and quick angle changes.  That’s why we wanted to bring the gain curve to a lower price category.  The curve progression was tuned in cooperation with drivers of various categories, from beginners to experienced competition drivers, so it fits well for most users possible and built into the gyro software.  That means it works optimally right after switching the gyro on and doesn’t bring any extra setting to worry about.

MIBO Duo Racing Charger

Continuing the roll out of its new range of racing accessories, MIBO has released this small dual-channel Duo Racing AC/DC 200W Charger/Discharger.  It is an intelligent charger with mains and car battery power supply and very simple and straightforward operation. The MIBO Duo Racing AC/DC 200W Charger/Discharger allows you to charge common battery types, plus it is equipped with built-in six-channel balancers to ensure safe charging of lithium batteries.  The charger is equipped with a colour LCD display and a programming wheel and button, which provide you with the possibility of comfortable and fast parameter setting, control and monitoring of the charging process. In addition to the compact “palm-sized” design and intuitive operation, it is worth a special mention that it has a program for new types of high-voltage LiHV batteries with a terminal voltage for charging up to 4.35 V. It offers the possibility of synchronous operation of both channels for charging two identical batteries. Adjustable charging end voltage for lithium batteries allows the gentle charging that aviators like, or the brutal overcharging that “car guys” like.

MIBO Electric Screwdriver

MIBO has added this Electric Screwdriver to its range of products as a handy tool to make assembling and disassembling RC car components quick and easy.  It is compact and lightweight, which combined with a non-slip rubber grip results in really effortless handling.  Forward and reverse buttons control a powerful electric motor, that provides consistent torque to drive screws into any material, including hard plastic, with precision and speed.  Powerful neutral brake lets you tighten the screws manually to adjust the torque by feel, rather than by digital torque control. This also helps you loosen any stubborn screw, that needs a lot of force to come out.  3.6V 900mAh Li-Ion battery allows for extended use without the need for battery replacement. Its capacity is enough for many hours of common work, then it can be charged via included micro USB cable within 60 minutes.  The screwdriver has a 6.35mm quick-release chuck, compatible with all kinds of bits that are suitable for different types of screws used in RC cars and elsewhere.  The supplied MIBO tips are made of hard steel with a titanium coating with 1.5mm, 2.0mm, 5.5mm and 7.0mm bits available.  The screwdriver body also contains a small LED worklight, that helps the visibility in tight spots.
