'New' Ace Nautical Commander??
« on: February 24, 2009, 18:41:09 »
I was just sent this link today.
I used to have one of the old 'metal case' 5ch AM 'Commanders' years ago, and really liked it.

It could be an alternative to the Robbe F-14...especially if a guy could convert this to 2.4ghz :) :)

Anyone have more info about this unit??

I tried sourcing one two years ago and had no luck. I went and purchased an F14 instead.

I cant remember what happened to ACE - I think they stopped manufacturing the unit.

I have some of the older units that they did produce and they went down hill from there. I had a fellow model builder that got a unit after mine and they replaced the metal control sticks with plastic ones, and he had to fight with them to get the crystal for the radio it's self had one in the receiver.  By the looks of the links above they have been trying to come out with this radio for a while and it don't look like it will be any time soon or at all. This is one of the reasons why I had switched over to the Robbe F-14 Navy system plus a lot easier to expand the Robbe vise the ACE system just plug in on the RObbe great thinking there.

I had a few teething problems with the F14 - my error.

What I did create was a test jig to assist with testing configurations.

Its easy to plug in a servo to test rotary switches but for simple on off. When I have time I will take some pics and upload them.
