(Happy Holidays!)
NEW!  -  Mini-Flash USB Programming Cable!
I finally designed a cool USB programming cable, hopefully one day it will replace the old RS232 9-pin programming cable I've shipped with Mini-Flash kits.  I have 5 being tested right now and all appears positive!  More info can be viewed by CLICKING HERE!

(Happy New Year!)
Been busy building and selling Mini-Flash and Mini-Beacon controllers.  Thanks goes out to all customers for your patronage.  As long as you keep wanting my gadgets, I'll keep building and selling! 

One neat feature I'm trying out this year is a live Support/Chat function on my webpage.  You can find it under the Forums/Chat window (see left menu) or simply click on the link below.  Try it out!  Hope to see you on there...

Nov. 17th, 2008 I finally got around to putting together webpages for a few new R/C gadgets... the Maxi-Switch (left) and Maxi-Flash (right) projects.

The Maxi Switch is a high current electronic switch controllable from your R/C gear.  The Maxi-Flash is similar to the Mini-Flash except it can control high loads, up to 30 amps for each of the 4 output channel

Two New R/C Products!
"Mini-Beacon" & "Maxi-Switch"

DIYRC is proud to announce the addition of two newly inspired R/C electronic projects. 

The "Mini-Beacon" is a stand-alone R/C controlled radiating beacon simulator that drives LEDs (up to 600mA max).  The LED light slowly ramps up, Flashes Brightly momentarily, then slowly decays.  It pauses and repeats indefinitely.  One (1) of twelve (12) flashing patterns can be programmed by using a single jumper

 

The "Maxi-Switch" is an R/C-controlled High Amperage switch that is capable of controlling DC loads up to 30 amps.  The switch normally allows you to use a separate power (input) and provides for a switched output.  With the use of a jumper, you can configure the switch to use the servo cable power instead of an external source (for 5v, low current switching applications).

Update to the Mini-Flash!

We are now using a standard .025" square, dual row header for the Miniflash LED connector.  This allows user to plug in other LED from other LED systems such as Curtek and RAM systems.

The older machine-pin header that was being used (costly and easily breakable) has been replaced with a stronger and more standard header as shown in the picture to the left.

   
October 8th, 2007 Just sold my 100th Mini-Flash !!  I hope to be making more soon!  Thanks to all the happy customer!

Periodically, check the Web store (shop.diyrc.com) to see if/when I have some assembled... as they often sell fast!

DIYRC.COM's NEW (look/feel) Webpage !!

Now without frames... (and much easier to navigate... and update!)

NEW!
Check out DIYRC.com's unique
Lithium Polymer Battery Temperature Labels/Gauges!
(Packs of 4 for only $10)

   
October 31st, 2005

Check out the New DIYRC.COM's Online Store !!

I finally decided to host an Online Store where you can now easily purchase assembled and kit projects described on the DIYRC.COM webpage.  Please feel free to email with any comments and/or suggestions.

Check out the New "MINI-FLASH" Programmable LED Flasher/Sequencer !.

This is a newly designed programmable LED flasher/sequencer based around its big brother, the "PRO-FLASH".  The only difference with the Mini-Flash is that it only has 4 LED channels instead of 8.  All other functionality remains, including programmable servo control!

   
August 7th, 2005

Updates have been made to the R/C Servo Glitch Trap/Filter page...

This is a newly designed Servo Glitch trap that uses only 3 components (a CD4068 Hex Buffer, a 1K resistor and a .01uF capacitor).  Simple and sweet!  More coming soon so check back often (or simply watch this "What's New" page for updates!)

   
August 7th, 2005

CHECK OUT THE NEW PROGRAMMABLE LED SEQUENCER/FLASHER !!

This is a newly designed LED Sequencer/Flasher circuit that is compact, weighs very little and most importantly, is user-programmable via a unigue, intuitive PC-based program that is FREE to Download

THE AIPTEK ELECTRONIC SWITCH PROBLEM HAS BEEN RESOLVED !! 

The Aiptek switch design needs to add a resistor from Pin#2 (the programming input pin on the PIC) to ground, as to not let it "float".   I will be making these webpage updates shortly...

May 30th, 2005 Made some updates to the following webpage:

Lithium Poly Charger Project

CURRENTLY UNDER INVESTIGATION !!
I have also been having issues with Aiptek camera mods using the PICAXE controllers.  It appears that issues arise when using certain BEC/brushless controllers.  There's a possibility that these might be causing "noise" that interrupts the operation of the PIC controller.   (darn EMI !)

May 12th, 2005 Added webpage for newly developed PIC-based Aiptek shutter switch.  Click here to see new PIC projects!
March 28th, 2005 Preliminary re-vamp of " Tom's R/C Electronics Gadgets & Projects Webpage (frames).  Now with a new domain name.... "http://www.diyrc.com"
More to come soon so check back often.
