DCRC Platinum Pro-Driver
Mark III

Pro Driver MKIII

The DCRC Mark II is all new. It is still a higher output unit, but it also incorporates a new feature. The timed switch is has a 3 minute timer instead to the 60 seconds of a standard unit. It also has an on/off slide switch. The racing adaptor is sold separately.

What this switching system does for you as a racer is:

Lets you turn on your DCRC Pro-driver when you get to the line to make sure that your plug is good and that you have a good connection. Then you shut off the slide switch to save on your battery and glow plug. When the clock starts, turn on the slide switch. You are ready to start.

After the 3 minutes is up, the timed switch shuts down the unit so that you do not run the batteries down.

The DCRD Mark II is powered by an LiFe 2100 Mah battery supplying hours of worry free driver usage

The DCRC Platinum Pro-Driver, pictured at the right. Is 1/3 the size and weight of the original "Orange Box" and has a 1100 NiMh power pack. It comes packed with the charger to properly charge the DCRC Platinum Pro-Driver. It can also be charged with your NiMh peak chargers.

The DCRC Platinum Pro-Driver is activated by a push button that turns it on for a one minute interval. Removing the possibility of leaving the unit

It is fitted with the Sonitronics standard glow plug clip. You can get them in longer lengths and just plug them in. We also have a "clip on" racing clip that will simply plug in the DCRC Platinum Pro-Driver for you."

These DCRC Pro-Drivers are not the same that you see advertised for the sport fliers or the pattern fliers. These units have the output turned up, so that they will properly light a Nelson Plug or a Glo-Bee for maximum performance. It will also work well for the premium glow plugs that are used in our racers for the 424 class. The DCRC Pro-Driver is becoming the glow-driver of choice for all racers. The unit is compact and reliable. It is easily charged with chargers that you already have.

The specially designed LED display replaces the traditional analog meter. It is much more tolerant to rough treatment. The high impact molded nylon case is designed to be nearly indestructible. The optional special plug attachment on these units is designed for our racers. It clamps to the cooling fins and attaches to the top of the plug. The standard glo-plug clip is also available.

You will no longer have to wonder about the condition of your glow plug before you take it out. You will soon learn how many of the LED lights will light on the good or a new glow plug that you are using. To check your glow plug before a heat, just attach the DCRC Pro-Driver and count the lights. If your normal amount of lights is on, your glow plug is still good. If the unit is showing no lights or too many, then there is also a problem. Pull the plug and check or replace it.

With 2400 Mah Nickel Metal Hydride Battery

This is a very special DCRC Pro-Driver. It was developed especially for the F3D International FAI Pylon event. The unit has a 3 minute timer for the on/off switch, a toggle switch and a potentiometer.
It has fully adjustable heat range. A must for the heavy duty Glo-Bee plugs from Andreas Kaiser. These heavy duty plugs take additional current to light them properly.

With this FAI Pro-Driver you can go to the line, connect your plug, push the timer button, verify the proper current draw by counting the LED lights, then turn the unit off with the toggle switch until it is time to start. You can leave DCRC Pro-Driver attached until the flag drops. The automatic timer will shut it off after the 3 minutes.

Small Fuel Filter

All classes of racers should be filtering their fuel at the source of fuel and in the airplane. The problems that occur from not filtering affect all classes of racers. Sport 40, 424, 428, to FAI all will benefit from using the micro filters.

Spray bar clogging can be real pain in the butt. The smallest amount of dirt can create problems. You can get the crud from not keeping you SuperTanker clean, or from others contaminating the fuel at contests. Even if you filter your fuel and keep your equipment clean, others may or do not.

Small Filter

Be more consistent. Install a micro fuel filter in all of your racers.

The filter is 1/4" in diameter and 7/8" long.

I have been using the micro filters for many years. They are important for consistency in your racing program. Tiny little things in your fuel system can mess up your whole weekend... Remember how small the space around your spray bar is. It does not take much of a spec to give you a lean run and ruin a good engine. Or you go to the line and you have to open your needle from the last run because you can tell it is too lean. You open the needle and run back. As soon as you get in the air, the clog works its’ way through and you are blubbering rich for the other 8 laps.

The filter must be on the needle side of your fuel system. You must also fill the tank before the filter. My installation is easy. I fuel from the outside of my airplanes and need a fuel line joiner anyway. I use the filter as the joiner. See the photos.

I prepare my filters by a liberal coating of Lock-Tite on the threads and then tighten them. I used to put a piece of large fuel line over the outside, but have found that a good coating of the thread locker does the job just fine. Once in awhile, I remove the filter and back flush it just to get the crud out of it

Racing Engine Prop Rings

These prop inserts are a must for all APC Quickie and Q40 Carbon racing props. When you use these inserts, your racing propellers will be in balance. No need to even check them. The crank holes in composite props are drilled rather than being molded. The drilled holes are drilled from a guide hole, but as hard as they try, the drilled holes are not perfect. The molded recess in the back of the props are perfectly. This is even more important when you have to ream or drill your props to fit your crankshaft size. These inserts fit the mold recess on the back side of the props, so the drilled or reamed holes do not matter. There are two different sizes, so do not get them mixed up. These are for the 5/16" cranks only.

The inserts for the Quickie will stay with the crankshaft when the prop is removed and the Q40 insert will stay in the prop. Both are reusable

You will be pleased with the smooth running of the engines with the Alignment Ring, and not taking the time to balance the APC propellers.

Blenderm Tape

Are you tired of the tape coming loose on your electric flying surfaces? This is the only tape that really works on all of the foam airplanes for hinging. It is thin, flexible and has a very aggressive adhesive. It stays where you put it. Use it on all electric airplanes that use the tape to hinge the flying surfaces with tape. Have a roll in your tool box and you can use it as intended to patch up cut fingers!

Bob Smith cyanoacrylates

IC-2000™ CA
Medium 1/2 Oz
Rubber-toughened cyanoacrylate that forms superior shock resistant bonds on non-porous surfaces. The black colored CA has added flexibility for the bonding of metals, fiberglass, rubber, carbon-fiber and other advanced materials. For model use, IC-2000™ is ideal for the bonding of bulkheads, formers and servo rails to the inside of fiberglass hulls and fuselages. Setup time is 20-40 seconds, which can be accelerated with INSTA-SET™. When cured, IC-2000™ is pliable enough to be carved with a hobby knife.

Water-thin viscosity that wicks deep into joints by capillary action and cures in a matter of a few seconds. Surfaces to be bonded must be tight fitting and should be held together while you apply the CA around the edges of the seam. At the moment CAs cure, they give off a vapor that can irritate the nose and eyes, so be prepared. Thin CAs work very well on balsa since they penetrate into the wood and form more than just a surface bond.

You will change your glueing habits. Anywhere you are using Ca now, that the black color does not show, you will probably start using IC-2000™ for its' extra strength. It is great for plywood, hardwood, metal, rubber, or almost anything you want to fasten permanently.
