2.4GHz Remote without external antenna
Our remotes work on the worldwide authorized 2.4 GHz ISM band. That means no quartzes, no frequency overly and maximal security against same canal disturbances. Since the transmitter and the receiver switch the frequency all the time synchronously, the chance of a double occupancy is pretty much ruled out with more than 130 million encoding options. Thus the danger of your own bait boat being controlled by another angler with the same quarty, which can happen with normal quartz bound remotes, is eliminated. Unlike with the normal remote you also don't need a long boat antenna anymore. Even the remote works well without an external antenna now!
Standard remote control FCX-6 Pro:
The digital FCX-6 Pro Tel has become handier and more ergonomic. Due to the more effective voltage conversion, it reduce the number of AA-batteries needed from 8 to 4. It now uses the advanced AFHDS2A protocol which has many advantages like lower error rates and an increased range.
We offer the Graupner MX12 to all customers that already use a Graupner receiver or accessories. Since the MX12 cannot be used on the water without an extra external antenna, we do not recommend using it when long range reception is important to you.
Futaba is a world-wide leader for long range remote controls. Thanks to the FFHSS protocol, Futaba offers the best high noise immunity out of all 2.4 GHz systems which can be used on the water.
Recommendations from our technicians: For bait boats with or without a sonar (i.e. Lowrance or Toslon TF500) the standard remote control is enough. The manufacturer specifies the possible distance at 500 meters. In case of nearby high frequency noise sources like high-voltage poles or a strong WiFi signal, we recommend the Futaba T6K. We also recommend the T6K if you require multiple radio links or are planning on expanding your system with a camera or Autopilot at a later point in time.
Fail-Free system by default! If the boat gets out of the reach of the remote control, the fail-safe system kicks in. The boat will not just continue driving straight ahead like other boats, but it turns itself off until it can be controlled by the remote control - safety first!"
