Default New turnigy/hobbyking powerbox systems

Anyone seen these look great value, there are three in the range, love the idea of the receiver mounts in the middle to save space and keeps it all neat.
Twin outputs on each channel (saves Y leads) and the two in the range also have a built in ign cut for petrol engines which could be used to switch on lights etc in other models.
From what I read the top model (yellow one) has adjustable voltages on each channel which would be great for mixing different voltage servos.

Yep... they put out a vid of it. BUT.... I dont' know if I trust it. They were making a knock-off of the smart switch... and they were failing because of poor quality regulator transistors.

Yes Tony that is one fear with HK but the Turnigy branded stuff seems to be fairly good, their budget 9ch 9X radio has been very successful.

To me, it appears that the servo voltage is adjustable on 'all' channels (i.e. not individual channels). I may well be wrong though!

Is there much more in there than a couple of voltage regulators and a case?

Looks like a cheap copy of the Smart-fly.I don't think I will fly with it untill it's proven.The money saved is not worth the cost of loosing a plane/jet. I do like compitition, helps to keep cost down and in check
