Default Nomadio Radio System

Have you guys seen or tried this? Does anyone here have this? You can actually make all your settings and adjustment on your PC and load all the data on your transmitter. Screen can also be customized. Looks ugly but features are great. No need for crystals anymore.

Here are the pics:




NO MORE CRYSTAL RADIOS OR FREQUENCY CLIPS
Sensor uses digital 2.4Ghz spread spectrum radio technology. Just like your cell phone, Sensor finds a clear channel automatically without you ever having to deal with frequency crystals or glitches again. Unlike clumsy ďbolt onĒ DSS radios, Sensorís is built to take advantage of DSS speed and accuracy.

REAL TIME TELEMETRY
Sensorís digital radio is two way, not one way, like crystal radios. That means that for the first time Sensor gives you real time reports of the condition of your car while you are driving it. Initially we provide sensors for speed, temperature and battery voltage, but the system is expandable and we will be releasing several exciting new sensors over the coming year. Unlike clumsy ďbolt onĒ telemetry systems, You'll never have extra boxes and wires to contend with... Sensorís is fully integrated into the controller.

HEADS UP COMPETITION DRIVING SYSTEM
Sensor gives you important alerts about your car without requiring you to take your eyes off the track. It does this with an integrated sound and vibration system that allows you to program what you want to know and how you want to be told. You can use headphones to keep your alerts private, too.

BRAINS AND BANDWIDTH IN YOUR RC CAR
For the first time, there is a microcontroller brain in your RC car. This breakthrough will enable all sorts of new and interesting capabilities for RC. For example, there is no need to spend money for a dedicated failsafe unit - Sensor's is built in. The onboard microprocessor knows what to do in the event of a loss of communication. This sort of thing is impossible with "dumb" analog crystal radios.

ITíS RIDICULOUSLY FAST
Sensorís design team optimized its digital brain for incredible speed and accuracy. The system sends control and telemetry updates to and from the car 100 times per second, with a resolution of 4096 steps per channel.

ITíS A PC-CONNECTED PERIPHERAL
Sensor was designed to use your PC to make it incredibly easy to program, back up, analyze, and update. Once you register your Sensor at Nomadioís web site, weíll automatically tell you when new software is available to add or improve functions on your Sensor. No other RC product offers Sensorís future upgrade capability. There will even be a developerís kit to allow third parties to develop software and expansion hardware for the Sensor system.

Customize your Sensor!
When you connect your Sensor to a PC you open up a world of possibilities for customizing the way that Sensor relates all of the information it gets from your car back to you.

Using any PC graphic program, you can make your own custom screens, with your picture or whatever you want. Sensor's backlit screen has 128x64 pixels, which allows you to make huge letters that can be read from across the room.

Audio Alerts
Make your own audio alerts (or select from scores of audio files that we include with your Sensor). You can set up sounds to be triggered on a certain speed, a certain temperature, a certain voltage. We include hundreds of pre-recorded sound effects and professionally spoken words and commands on the Sensor software CD. You can also use any Windows WAV file that you find online with Sensor. If you are creative and want to make your own sounds, Sensor also comes with an audio recording/editing program that you can use to make your own alerts.

Tactile Alerts
Program the vibrator to signal you on any event or condition.

Unlike any other RC radio, Sensor is a software-based PC peripheral .

Yep, a number of us use the Nomadio. Use the SEARCH function. There are a number of threads on the Nomadio. Also check the Nomadio support board (on the Nomadio site). Lots of good information there.

I too have been running it, even before production, way before, lol. We're talking when the reciever was about 8"x4" and could only fit on a e-maxx, . The radio is top quality and the engineers/programmers are more than willing to help if you have any problems at all. Compared some of the top radios out there, the Nomadio is extremely light. Also, the screen is one of the easiest to read.

Hey Jason hows is going? I think I will be racing with you some this year at the outdoor ORL2 races. Looks like I will be running a few of those this year. Waiting to see how they change the rules for the summer season, especially the tire part. I would really like to run rubber tires in one of the classes like last year but if not I might run a few with foams anyways. Would like to see rubber tires because most places on asphalt now days run this and almost every big race around are area in MD, NJ and PA run rubber tires as do 90% of the country so it will help with setups at future races.

Hope to race with you soon.

Brian

Default Sensor talk to spektrum

I hear Nomadio is going to have a program that lets the Sensor talk to spektrum receivers

LOW / SLOW mode LOW as in they have to go to low power by a FACTOR OF 6, slow because we have to go from 100Hz to 50Hz

DAMN!!!

So exactly how big is the reciver then? because i have a FK05, and i have a Novak TC2 speed control and a NOvak XXtra synthesized that has to go on its size, not enough room for it to lay down, but i will be getting a Quantum 2, and want to know if the Nomadio Receiver can lay down next to it nicely, is there any other receivers compatiable with it?
