DRS for RC
1 May 2013
DRS for your RC F1. You know you want one! :)
This ebay store is selling rear wings with a micro servo to activate DRS.
6 May Update - unfortunately since we published the story on our Facebook page on 1 May the price has doubled :(
Plug the DRS servo into the 3rd channel on your receiver (if you have one) and either configure a button on your radio to open it when you press it (a button under your thumb or 2nd finger might be ideal), or configure your radio to close it whenever you turn the steering wheel. You need a radio which can be configured. Most high end radios have these features, as do a number of mid-range radios. 2 channel radios can't be used. Most RTR radios and lower cost radios won't have the ability to configure them unfortunately.
Facebook Highlight - This is now the most popular post on our Facebook page! It's been viewed and shared virally by 50% more people so far than the previous most popular (the Vintage F1 post) :)
Nathan Tampe, who won the Northern Territory F1 Championship recently, emailed us a video of his DRS working. Looks awesome!
