12. April 2018 - UPDATE: KONTRONIK protocol for telemetry

Version 1.13 / 4.13 fixes a bug:

Graupner HoTT Telemetry - Capacity limit warning with Bluetooth module plugged in.

These updates are now available under "Download" on our homepage.

5. April 2018 - KONTRONIK protocol for telemetry

From now on the software release 4.12 for the KOSMIK and 1.12 for the JIVE Pro is ready for download.

 

With this release, the KONTRONIK protocol for telemetry is now available. It can be used in combination with the telemetry cable JR. The specification of the protocol can be found under “Downloads” as well.

 

The two software versions add two additional parameters to the TelMe module JETI: timing and throttle. In addition, bugs of the previous version are eliminated. At the TelMe-module for Graupner, the capacity alarm is from now on only active as long as the motor is rotating. In addition, instead of the set maximum values, the actually reached maximum values for current and ESC-temperature are now displayed.

 

These updates are now available under “Download” on our homepage.

10 March 2018 - The new KOLIBRI LV

Our new KOLIBRI series is available from April 2018 on!

We offer three versions: KOLIBRI 60 LV, KOLIBRI 90 LV and KOLIBRI 140 LV.

All versions have a high and stable performance. The KOLIBRI also provides the well-known safety functions of KONTRONIK products. As the software is based on our premium ESC KOSMIK, the KOLIBRI provides an optimal governor for your flight. It also features the well-known soft start-up and the flexible modus programming of the premium segment.

In addition, all versions have a very strong BEC with up to 9 V and 10 A continuous current.

As a further highlight, we integrated the telemetry functions. So the KOLIBRI provides telemetric data for Futaba,
 Multiplex, Graupner, Mikado and Jeti without an additional TelMe module.

Of course, all versions are prepared for Bluetooth communication and online updates.

26 January 2018 - New PYRO motors

With several new motors we enlarge our PYRO-series:

The PYRO 650-53 and 650-53 L: 530 kv for the 650 class. With two different shaft lengths (23.5 mm and 40 mm free shaft length). Order no. 27317 (650-53) and 27318 (650-53 L).

 

The PYRO 750-41 P BM: the well known 750-41 as backmount version. Order no. 277076.


The PYRO 750-45 S and 750-45 S Competition: with very short shaft (20 mm free shaft length), e.g. for the Henseleit TDF. Order no. 277086 (750-45 S) and 277086C (750-45 S Competition).

The PYRO 850-24 L Competition: 240 kv for the 850 class in a competition version with handwinding and outstandingly low inner resistance. Order no. 276161C.

All motors are available from now on.

26. January 2018 - Our new team manager Europe: Heiko Fischer

We proudly introduce our new team manager for Europe: Heiko Fischer. Heiko is deeply rooted in the RC scene for many years and well known from various events as a pilot or exhibitor.

 

Since 2017 he is also responsible for technical support at KONTRONIK. As our team manager, he is the contact person for our pilots and those, who want to become our pilots.

26 January 2018 - Dry Fluid

 

DryFluid Extreme Gear Lube has been specifically designed for heavy-duty model-building gearboxes. It is not a fat, not oiling and free of silicones and therefore it is more a lubricant.

 

Through the use of dry particles, sliding polymers and extremely adherent high-end lubricants it has extraordinary lubricating properties. Further characteristics are its extreme pressure resistance, excellent adhesion and its low tendency to dust and dirt binding.

The long-term effect will inspire every model maker.

 

 

26 January 2018 - New sales concept in the USA

We have optimized our sales concept for the USA. Most important pillar is Tim DiPeri. He is our team manager in the USA already and now our Business Development Manager North America as well. This means he is the contact person for our retailer, end customer and pilots. Furthermore, he is in charge of acquiring new retailers and extend our sales network.

 

As a second pillar we launched a consignation stock in the USA. So many orders can be shipped directly from the USA which leads to a much faster reaction time. Finally, we decrease our dollar prices by 9% in average. This is possible due to an optimized logistic and cost structure as well as to the development of the dollar-euro-relation. The change will be effective from February 2018. From February onwards you can find the new price list here.

26 January 2018 - And what about the new ESCs…?

In 2017 we announced the KOLIBRI series for summer / autumn 2017. But during our tests and validations we found some details, that we wanted to optimize before going to market. Despite the announcement, it is most important for us to provide a carefully tested product that meets our own expectations – even if it takes longer than planned. We are now again testing and validating the ESCs and therefore we do not yet want to make any new announcement. But please be sure, that we are working on it with high pressure!

 

In addition, in December 2017 there was shown a COOL KOSMIK 220 UHV for a short time on our homepage. It is true that we are working on a 16S controller. At the moment we are still in the development and testing phase. Our marketing has inadvertently put a prepared "dummy page" online. It's too early to name details about final performance, features, launch and price. Please be patient and stay curious.

5 December 2017 - Info about the COOL KOSMIK

The last week a "COOL KOSMIK 220 UHV" was shown on our website. It is true that we are working on a 16S controller. At the moment we are still in the development and testing phase. Our marketing has inadvertently put a prepared "dummy page" online. It's too early to name details about final performance, features, launch and price. Please be patient and stay curious.

22 August 2017 - The new PYRO 900

 

 


As from October 2017 the new PYRO 900 will close the gap between the 850- and 1000-series. The PYRO 900 also provides an outstanding weight to power ratio: up to 7,5 kW with only 685 grams, 63 mm diameter and 68 mm length. With this motor, every heli of the 700 class or higher can be driven with terrific power.

The PYRO 900 is available in three versions:

As from October 2017 the MINIPYRO motor series will be enlarged by a version with 4,2:1 gear. As known from the existing versions, the shaft and the pinion are produced as one piece, and not glued together. So that loosing pinions are a thing of the past.

22 August 2017 - The JIVE Pro 120+HV black

 

 

From now on the JIVE Pro 120+HV is also available in black color. There are no differences to the red JIVE Pro concerning power, size and price. But the black version perfectly fits into black helicopters and to the KONTRONIK competition motors.

22 August 2017 - The KONTROL-X with internal 5V power supply

As from September 2017 the KONTROL-X series is available with improved hardware and software. The most important change is that the ESCs now come along with internal 5V power supply. The price remains the same as before.

22 August 2017 - New velcro lock straps with KONTRONIK logo

 

 

We offer velcro lock straps with KONTRONIK logo as from September 2017. The skip-proof gumming ensures perfect grip of the batterie even in extreme situations. One package includes 4 velcro lock straps with 330 mm length and costs 9,9 0€ (incl. VAT) resp. 11,90 $ (order no 9716).

 

 

 

22 August 2017 - New 8 mm gold connectors

As an addition to our product range of connectors, we now offer also 8 mm gold connectors. We recommend them for applications with high current, e.g. in combination with the PYRO 900 or 1000. These connectors reduce losses of electric power due to contact resistance and improve the efficiency of the drive.

 

The 8 mm gold connectors are available in two package sizes: with 5 pairs (incl. shrinking hoses, order no. 9052) for 14,90 € (incl. VAT) resp. 18,90 $ or with 10 pairs (incl. shrinking hoses, order no 9053) for 28,90 € (incl. VAT) or 36,90 $.

7 December 2016 - Change of company’s name to SOBEK Drives GmbH and relaunch of the brand KONTRONIK

Many of you may already know that KONTRONIK + SOBEK Drives GmbH is not only active in the RC model sector, but also for a lot of industrial companies. To clarify our structure and position we are going to realise two changes as from 2017-01-01:

 

1. As from 2017-01-01 we are going to change our company’s name. KONTRONIK + SOBEK Drives GmbH will turn into SOBEK Drives GmbH. Please consider this in our written conversation from then on SOBEK Drives GmbH,Etzwiesenstraße 35/1, 72108 Rottenburg.

 

 

2. Although there are still some tough rumors: Despite our activity in industrial sectors, we will not only be loyal towards the RC hobby sector, but even strengthen the brand KONTRONIK. In addition to new products (which you can find below), there will be a relaunch of the brand KONTRONIK:

 

 

 

 

 

The design of the brand is modernized by clearer colors and shapes. Merchandising items, packages, our homepage, booth etc. will be “refreshed” stepwise as from 2017-01-01.

13 November 2015 - The innovation: The KONTRONIK Spur Gear

Together with a PYRO 850-50 the KONTRONIK Spur Gear (KSG) is a real innovation especially for airplanes. It fits perfectly for towplanes and 100 / 120 scale models.

 

The KSG can be used, where gas engines are forbidden: silent, clean, odorless.

 

And its performance? Outstanding:

·         static thrust up to 32 kg

·         10 kW peak power

·         5 kW continuous power

 

The KSG offers multiple possibilities of mounting. Depending on the version, it can be mounted on the front, on the back or the sides. Despite its power, it has a very compact construction (BHT 132 x 108,3 x 135,5 mm when mounted on the back) and light weight (ca. 1.300 resp. 1.500 g motor included).

 

Further features are a combination of gear wheels materials that are more resistant to wear and special ball bearings. The gear ratio is 4:1.

 

The KSG is constructed to run in combination with the PYRO 850-50. The sales price for the set of KSG and PYRO 850-50 is 1,299 €; in addition with a COOL KOSMIK 200 HV 1,999 €. The price for the KSG itself is 899 € (all prices incl. V.A.T.). Customers, who already have a PYRO 850-50, can send it to KONTRONIK so that we mount it to the KSG without any further costs. The KSG is not sold without a motor, as mounting is difficult and the KSG is only approved for the PYRO 850-50 so far.

 

The KSG is available as from December 2015, preorders are possible from now on.

13 November 2015 - The Highlight: COOL KOSMIK 200 HV Limited Gold Edition

New look for our well known COOL KOSMIK 200 HV:

 

  • refined with 18-karat gold
  • strictly limited to 100 pieces – serial number is engraved on the back side

 

The COOL KOSMIK 200 HV Limited Gold Edition is available from December 2015. Pre-orders will be  taken from now on. The edition is limited, so it pays to be quick. Thus the race for the ECUs is fair, we have set up an e-mail address:

 

                             golden-kosmik@remove-this.kontronik.com

 

The decisive factor is the sequence of orders to this address. The selling price for the COOL KOSMIK 200 HV Limited Gold Edition is 1,000 EUR (incl. VAT.).

01 October 2015 - Elimination of BEC-initialization problems of JIVE Pro and KOSMIK; live-cell therapy for KOBY

Requirements to ESCs are constantly increasing – by more powerful servos and motors, harder flying styles etc. For this reason, we gave a live-cell therapy to our ESCs.

 

Our KOBY is now equipped with more powerful MOSFETs, ELKOs, capacitors and gate resistors.

 

By optimizing our hardware in our JIVE Pro- and KOMSIK-ESCs we fixed problems of BEC initialization that could have occurred in newer configurations.

11 September 2015 - TelMe Futaba

TelMe Futaba is ready! We say too - at last!. Development time and effort has been much more than expected.. 

The TelMe module is the interface between a KOTRONIK ESC with module port and a Futaba receiver prepared for telemetry. TelMe is recognized automatically by the ESC and the correct data stream is started.

The retail price will be 89,90€ / 109,90$ - but starting 01.01.2016. For all which have already ordered and for all who decide without hesitation the special price of 69,90€ / 86,60$ is available. So be quick.

Generally it's necessary that the transmitter uses FASSTest communication. Futaba has included this already in T18MZ. T14SG and FX-22 will follow in October (announced by Futaba). T18SZ, FX-32 and others are not communicated yet.

Be sure that you update your Futaba  transmitter, ProgUNIT / ProgDISC and ESC to the newest software.

Enjoy your TelMe-Futaba.

12 August 2015 - Outstanding succes at IRCHA Speedcup

With the new Henseleit TDS Oliver Jellen won this year's speedcup with 284,87 km/h (177,01 mi/h) in average. Robert Sixt could reach 3rd with very good 268,11 km/h (166,60 mil/h). Both pilots would be faster if they had more preparation time, as the machines has been ready the week before. Last calibration flight has done the evening before.

This competion has shown, which power potential this helicopter together with PYRO 850-50 and CoolKOSMIK 200 HV has. We are courious to see how fast it will go when everything is well balanced. Sadly the TDS was not ready when this year's World Record Event took place - so this time is faster, but unofficial.

03 August 2015 - Updates available

The new software version  4.6 for KOSMIK ESCs and the new software version 1.6 for JIVE Pro ESCs as well as the corsponding new K-Konfig PC program are available for download.
