Designed in conjunction with Timpdon Electronics, the unit is designed to work with R/C systems, such as the Planet 5, and on Steam locomotives using a separate reverser channel, such as Roundhouse. The unit allows the user to toggle the direction of the gear using the transmitter stick; the gear will not be altered until the stick is toggled in the opposite direction.
The unit Is Simple to install and fits in-line between the receiver and the reverser servo and is powered through the receiver. The unit also acts as a Fail Safe; if the radio is tuned off, or signal lost, the gear will remain in the direction of travel. The unit allows Locomotives to be set at the required speed and direction of travel, then the handset to be put down.
The video below shows the setup and the Cruise Control in use.
