Default Top RC Retract Controller

Is anyone familiar with the new retract controller from TopRC, it's the one that goes from 7.4 - 11.1v, has a place to also connect gear doors, trying to figure out how it operates.

Default same problem here

I have received the same controller with my F-16 with any kind of operating manual. I started with measuring the polarity of the outputs by attaching a simple volt meter; once I got that figured out I hooked it up to a servo tester and the gear was working... haven't played around with the geardoor sequencer. Please share here if you manage to figure out more of how it works

I have posted 2 videos on my youtube channel, as I am not allowed to post url's you'll have to look for the channel of "jorisnys"

I would seriously consider replacing this with a Xicoy controller...

It is eminently adjustable.

Watched you video's, hooked up controller, worked fine for 3 cycles, then fried itself and started smoking, same as the old controllers, these guys need to get things figured out, and I know other people who fried multiple controllers also, old and new.

Every time I see someone with a "knock off" controller, it doesn't function very well, if at all. The Xicoy controllers are the standard and can work with just about any gear...
