    VoltMagic On-Board System Monitor
    Supports A123/LiFe, Nicad/NiMH & Li-Ion Rx & Ignition Packs!

    We’re thrilled to introduce the ultimate in integrated monitoring systems for your Radio Gear and Battery Packs. VoltMagic monitors pack voltage, radio glitches, peak low voltage and intermittent system interruptions and will even track and report marginal Voltage Regulator and/or Battery Pack performance under actual flight loads! 


    Up till now you’d have to spend hundreds of dollars and drag along a laptop to get this kind of data on flight safety critical system performance. Ideal for high-drain, high load digital servo applications! If you’ve got an aggressive 3D or aerobatic aircraft THIS device is what you need. Easy to install (just plug it into your receiver), simple to program and it weighs less than an ounce. Reports at the end of your flight the peak low voltage sustained under load, the number (if any) of glitches or 'radio hits' and stores the info for display even after you turn your radio system off! Constant real-time reporting of actual voltage of your system!


    For use with 2.4 GHz, PCM or regular FM radios systems, 4 cell and 5 cell Nicad or NiMH packs, 2 cell Lithium, including specialized programing options for A123 packs. Works seamlessly in all types of system installations; including regulated systems!

    Click the picture below to view the instructions, setup guide and specs!


    Full Support for A123 Packs as well as Nicad, NiMH, LiIon and Lipoly packs, for Non-regulated  and Regulated systems.



    Adjustable Voltage Regulator 

    Six volt packs provide faster servo transit and more torque for big control surfaces. In some applications with older JR digital servos a regulator is required; in some others 'jittering' is an issue with freshly charged 6v packs. A123's on some Ignition Modules provide higher voltage than the module can tolerate... A regulator is the cure! 

    Key Features: • Universal Connector • Input Range: 4.8V - 8.4V • Selectable Output: 5.95V or 5.4V • Current: 5A continuous, 10A peak @ 7.4V input and 5.95V output, Weight: 0.7oz. Works with 4,5 or 6 cell NiMH/Nicad and 2 cell A123 Lithium packs. If the supply voltage drops below the output set voltage the regulator is automatically bypassed.

    Fully 'plug and play' ready, comes with HD gold plated 22g Univ system connectors and instructions.


    Comes with Univ Connectors for input and output and it fits all current radio systems.

    System Type



    OEM Type/Size System Switch, 22g 

    The most common source of failure in an R/C system is a worn-out or intermittent switch. Vibration, fuel soaking and contact wear all contribute to the degredation of the switch. If it's time to replace a pack, it's likely time to consider replacing the switch.
