New Serial Bus Technology!

Our ShockWave 3 sound module Release 5.1.3 now supports multiple Serial Bus protocols from many different manufacturers. This enables direct compatibility with Spektrum SMART ESCs (SRXL2 protocol), Graupner SUMD, Futaba S.Bus, FliSky iBus, JRPropo XBus, Jeti Ex Bus and Multiplex SRXL protocols.

This can greatly simplify wiring of the sound module. Now all radio channels are available on a single servo lead instead of using five separate PWM servo leads. Requires a compatible Serial Bus capable radio receiver.

Selection of the Serial Bus Protocol to be used is done by editing a simple text field in the enhanced format BasicHardwareSettings.txt text file on the microSD card.

ShockWave 3 Sound System Exclusive Features

New Serial Bus feature, as above.

Unique "Remote Scroll Through Mode" allowing scrolling up and down available sound sets remotely from your radio to select the sound set you want for your model.

E-Z-SyncTM method of achieving easy push-button synchronization between propeller rotation start/stop and the engine sound startup/shutdown.

The ShockWave 3 sound module also supports 3-position transmitter switches on one radio channel. This is ideal for weapons fire control, e.g. switch up for Machine Gun, switch down for Cannon fire, switch centre is off.
