Default New Smart Fly Power Expander

Hey Guys,

Thought I would post this new product from Smart Fly for the Futaba users. It is similar to the Orbit unit but also icorporates a batshare and has a port to plug in a failsafe switch leaving you only to plug in your batteries direct to the unit. It does cost a little more but you get a little more over the Orbit unit. Also great for KISS in a jet!!!

Looks like this place near me has them in stock or you can try another Smart Fly vendor.

I dont' think orbit has the batt share or the 5.1 volt regulated to the rx.

Nice But at that price I rather get the power expander pro,


NOW if the comeout with an SBUS decoder system with 12 + channel support, we'll be talking.

No batshare but the orbit does have regulated power to the rx. I like the smart fly one because you can eliminate a battery sharing unit and switches.
