Dynamax Xtreme Pro II Fan Systems Back In Stock!

Yep!  The bad boy of fan systems is back in stock!  This 3rd generation fan system now features an all new single billet rotor hub assembly.  The integrated collet allows the fan system to spin even higher RPMs,  completely eliminating any possible 'play' normally found when using a traditional two piece type of collet assembly.  The end result is a smoother running and more efficient fan system!

Congratulations to James Cameron!

Today, James Cameron was the first man in history to complete a solo dive to the Mariana Trench.  Jim Drew, CEO of XPS, spent time with James Cameron last week going over the electronic 'flight' control system that XPS developed for the expedition's ROV.  XPS has been under contract for the last 10 months, working with Mike Cameron (James' brother) who developed all of the ROVs used by James Cameron for exploration of the Titanic and Bismarck.  During this time, virtually all progress on our future products was halted so that we could be part of this historic event.

Dynamax Xtreme PRO 2 Fan Systems Now Available

XPS showed the brute force power of the new Dynamax Xtreme PRO 2 fan system installed in a Skymaster 2M ViperJet.  A top speed of 195.6MPH was recorded on radar during one of the flights.  This is not the EDF ViperJet, this is the 2 meter version which is designed for turbines only.  The weight of this plane was 33 pounds!  A 15S2P5000mAh battery setup along with a Hacker/JETI 170-200A controller was used.  Video of a couple of passes can be seen here:

XPS AT TOLEDO

XPS will once again attend the Weak Signals model expo in Toledo, OH.  This is the 5th straight attendance for XPS.  Come by our booth and check out the new products, including a protype of our 16 channel transmitter, our new Aurora 9 module and other new items.  XPS will have most of their products on hand for sale at the show.

 


 

 

AMA EXPO 2011

ANOTHER SUCCESS FOR XPS!

 

The XPS brand 16 channel transmitter was shown for the first time.  We expect to release the transmitter on the 4th anniversary of the release of the XtremeLink® radio system at the Weak Signals model expo in Toledo, Ohio in April.  Feedback from the general public as well as the top pilots in the industry was incredible!  There was disbelief in the number of high tech features such as 16 true channels, a large backlit LCD display, speech recognition, speech output, 1000 model memory, full telemetry, etc.  -  especially given the target price of just $249.  Watch our website for more details!

The new XtremeLink® module for the Hitec Aurora 9 transmitter was shown.  This new plug-in module interfaces directly to the Aurora 9's CPU and does not use the PPM pulse conversion method that is common with modules.  As a result, the latency over the stock Aurora 9 is nearly cut in half!  Testing by top pilots prove a dramatic improvement in control response due to the huge reduction in latency and superior resolution (65536 instead vs. 1024).  More information about the latency difference can be found here.  The XtremeLink® telemetry data (including signal strength) is available in the Aurora 9's display.  We are working on adding support for Eagletree sensors and Hitec's sensor station to go along with our own sensors.  The module can be wirelessly upgraded using our XDP device. The XtremeLink® system also does not have the "dead servo" issue like the Aurora 9 system does.  When the Hitec receiver loses data and a failsafe occurs,  there is a period of time where the servos do not have any holding force (like no power).  It is possible that the servos can sit in this dead state if the signal comes and goes.  Expected release date is February 15th.

XPS RELEASES 65C BATTERIES!

After months of waiting, they are finally here!  The 3rd generation of our incredibly popular Lipo batteries are now available!  These new batteries boast a 65C discharge with 90C burst, and an unheard of 8C charge rate!  No more long waits!

*** WARNING *** Because the average voltage of these cells is much higher under load than previous Lipo technology you MUST test your setup with an amp meter to make sure that you do not exceed the powering handling of your motor.  We will not be responsible for blowing up your motor!  You have been warned!

For a complete list of sizes available click here.

 


Dylan Rodriguez Wins Gas Pro Truggy at Gas Championships

Using XPS Park Flyer Receiver!

Once again, Dylan Rodriguez is tearing it up!  This time with a win in Truggy class at the Gas Championships.  After a successful season using our popular 3 channel surface receiver, Dylan switched to our 6 channel park flyer receiver.  This saved weight, and allows the 2.4GHz system to perform flawlessly with a input voltage of just 2.1v!

Congratulations to Dylan on another great win!  Expect many more from Dylan, as he is becoming the kid (...err man) to beat!

 

 


 

XPS SETS FASTEST PASS AT BIG JOLT!

Jim Drew entered his trusty 20 year old Starfire in the speed contest held at the Big Jolt event put on by the PVMAC.  The result was another record setting fastest pass of 223.9MPH, besting last year's pass of 199MPH!

Jim said, "There were some issues with the plane going faster than the control surfaces would allow for turning.  This setup is clearly over 230MPH, as the record setting pass was actually my 4th full throttle run which means that batteries were down a lot.  We will need to change the control surfaces so we can see how fast it will really go!"

The difference between last year and this year is the new Dynamax Xtreme Pro fan system.  Producing over 26 pounds of thrust on 15 cells (compared to just 22 pounds of thrust last year) definitely makes for higher speeds.

XPS RELEASES NEW NANO RECEIVERS!

Xtreme Power Systems expands on their already successful product line by releasing two new ultra small receivers.  Designed for small indoor and outdoor applications, these tiny receivers offer features not offered by any other radio manufacturer such as wireless programming, wireless firmware upgrades, independently programmable channel failsafes, channel mapping, and more!  To top it off, these new receivers perform flawlessly down to an amazingly low 2.0 volts, far below what any other radio manufacturer offers!  The low voltage operation allows single cell Lipo setups to be possible and reliable!  Measuring just 1.0" x .7" and weighing around 3 grams, these receivers make installation easy in everything from foamies to micro helis.  Don't let the size of these receivers fool you!  Our testing has determined the range of these nano receivers to be equal to our full range receivers!  However, because of their size we are stating that they are "park flyer" type receivers.

JETPACKS™ ARE HERE!

Tired of paying big money for high performance, high capacity, EDF packs?  So were we!  So, we had our Lipo factory produce 45C Platinum 6600mAh JetPacks™.  These packs fit into virtually every EDF jet configuration, offering ease of installation into popular planes such as the Yellow Aircraft Starfire II, F4, F-18, as well as BVM Electra, Bandit, Maverick, and many others.  2S, 5S, and 6S packs are available!  XPS is famous for our Lipo battery technology (especially in EDF applications), as well as our fair pricing.  Why pay more for less?

CA JETS 2010

Xtreme Power Systems once again showed their EDF dominance at California Jets 2010.  Besides having the fastest EDF at the event, XPS picked up the "Engineering Excellence EDF" award for our Dynamax Xtreme powered Yellow Aircraft F-15.

Unlike other companies that demo their fan systems using 6500mAh packs (needed because of their higher amp draw), XPS uses 5000mAh packs to prove that you don't need huge packs.  Of course, very long flight times are possible using 6500mAh or larger packs.  Don't be fooled by competitors using large capacity batteries and coasting around the sky to obtain long flight times.  Watts are watts - the lower the amp draw, the longer the possible flight time!

 

Jim Drew, CEO/President of Xtreme Power Systems with his 20 year old Yellow Aircraft Starfire II.

New Anti-Spark System Now Available!

Xtreme Power Systems releases yet another equipment saving device!  High voltage Lipo systems are known for that huge "zap" that occurs when connecting the pack to the ESC.  This spark (caused by too rapid of charging of the capacitors used in ESCs) destroys contacts and also can damage the capacitors themselves!  The XPS anti-spark system prevents this damage completely!  Simply wire in the system (or make a portable version with connectors) and touch the anti-spark wire to your battery for several seconds, and then plug in your battery lead - NO SPARK!  Rated for 1S to 18S operation.  Made using high grade fireproof material.  Works with all speed controllers available!  Get one and save your ESC, connectors, and your nerves!

TattleTale™ Released!

Xtreme Power Systems is pleased to announce the release of our latest product called the TattleTale™.  This is a device that every R/C modeler needs in every one of their radio controlled planes, cars, or boats!  This device monitors a receiver's input voltage and reports the lowest voltage threshold while in use.  No more guessing if your power system is adequate for your setup!  The TattleTale™ also monitors the PWM servo pulse coming from the receiver and can report if a glitch, failsafe, or reboot occurs!  As an added bonus, the TattleTale™ has a built-in programmable timer that can be used as a flight duration timer for night flyers!

The TattleTale™ is so small (.5" x .75") and lightweight (1.75g - .062oz) that even the smallest foamies can easily carry it!  Don't be surprised to find that high dollar expander system can't power your receiver and servos like you thought it does!  Nearly 100% of all radio problems are due to low power!  2.4GHz radios use computers which require constant power.  Now you can finally put your mind at ease by checking your power system's ability to provide true power full time!

Xtreme Power Systems Captures Fastest Pass at E-Jets International!

Xtreme Power Systems debuted our Dynamax Xtreme fan system at the E-Jets International event in Grove City, Ohio.  The fastest pass was just about as close to 200 MPH as you could get with one radar showing 199.7 MPH!  This pass was done with a 20 years old jet that was converted from a turbine setup to EDF!

We brought out all of the old planes, including two Byron F-15 (both 20 years old) that have been converted from the old OS .91 glow ducted fan setups to the Dynamax Xtreme setups.  Imagine the sight of a 41 pound F-15 going down the deck at 134 MPH!  If you were there, you don't need to imagine - you saw it!  To see a video of this amazing feat, click here.

Compare the difference in fan systems yourself.  The Dynamax Xtreme system is not only the most affordable (at $439), it also out performs all 120-127mm fan systems available.

Congratulations to Jim Martin on his successful maiden of his Fly Eagle F-14 Tomcat.  This massive plane weighs 46-54 pounds (depending on the battery setup), has functioning swing wings, and other features.  To see videos of this incredible accomplishment, click here.

The Dynamax Xtreme fan system will be available starting October 1st.

Congratulations to Dylan Rodriguez on his 3rd place finish at the RC Pro West Series!

Using our new 3 channel surface receiver, Dylan was able to drive his 1/8th scale nitro buggy for more than 45 minutes without worry of power issues commonly found in radio systems unable to cope with low voltage and brownouts.  Dylan is one of the top drivers in the nation and he knows just how important a solid radio link is!  This is why Dylan uses the XtremeLink® radio system!

 



 


 

Xtreme Power Systems releases new 3 channel surface receiver!

We are pleased to announce the release of our new 3 channel "surface" receiver.  This new receiver represents the 2nd generation of our already successful hardware.  The new hardware features extremely low voltage operation (down to 2.0 volts!), a new multi-colored status LED, and the ability to have its firmware flashed using our XDP or Telemetry Station.  Comes with v3.x firmware pre-installed.

This receiver is designed for ground based vehicles (not for use on water), and has been extensively tested in everything from 1/10th scale oval to 1/8th scale nitro.

 


 

BETA Firmware Updater Software Released!

We have released a beta version of our firmware updater.  This updater requires that you have already upgraded your XtremeLink® system to v3.0 or later.  It is not possible to upgrade v2.x devices to v3.x devices due to a firmware change necessary to the RF module.  This updater will update receivers to v3.4, transmitter modules to v3.4, and satellite receivers to v1.1.

This updater works with both the XDP and Telemetry Station devices.

Although we have tested this software with numerous systems, there is always a possibility of firmware updaters being interrupted in the middle of the update, making the device unusable.  Please use a full battery when performing the updates and never unplug the USB cable from the computer during the update process!  If you receive a "success" message then your firmware has been successfully upgraded.

Put your XtremeLink® receiver or transmitter module into computer programming mode before running the updater.

The updater can be found here: XtremeLink Updater

New XDP/Telemetry Station Software

We are releasing the changes we have made to support v3.x of the firmware with the XDP and Scanner programs.  RxDiag.exe was already v3.x compatible.  TxDiag.exe is still not compatible with hopping modes other than 1 (the original predictive hopping mode).  We are in the process of updating the TxDiag.exe program.  The Scanner.exe program fully support v3.x now and allows recording/playing back long data streams properly.  Localization has been done with the Scanner.exe and some of the XDP.exe program.  When completed, we will have language support for 15 different languages.

The new software can be downloaded from the XDP webpage, located here.

XPS News!

Xtreme Power Systems has been extremely busy doing upgrades for Telemetry Station owners, and making improvements to the various XDP and Telemetry Station utilities.  We have spent the last 10 days working with the USB hardware manufacturer to resolve some issues with the USB support via Windows XP and Vista.  We believe that we have corrected most (if not all) of the issues that have been reported.  All items returned for the telemetry upgrade have been shipped back to their owners. We appreciate your patience during this unexpected delay.

It is on rare occasion that we come across published information that echoes what we have been trying to tell the public about how crucial proper setup and power is for the success of a model.  We purchase our servos and various other hardware from Don's Hobby Shop (www.donshobbyshop.com).  Don has been around for 44 years, and has seen it all.  In our last order, we received a 3 page white paper titled "Servo Setup Issues".  We were so impressed with the wisdom in this paper that we called and asked Don if we could provide this information to our customers.  To download a scanned copy of the paper, click here.  This is a definite must-read, no matter how long you have been in the hobby.

We had a period of time last week where none of our emails for tech support and sales were getting to us.  This was due to us registering the domain name "www.xtremepowersystems.com".  We attempted to move everything to the new domain and it caused serious issues.  So, we restored everything and just made the new domain link to the existing .net location.  We apologize for not responding to those emails which we lost during this time.

 


New Products!

Xtreme Power Systems is pleased to announce numerous new product additions to our website.  The Graupner G Booster turbines are in stock and now available for ordering via our online store.  We have also added XtremeLink® radio systems for the Graupner "tray" type radios.  Also, our Telemetry Station has been added.  Telemetry sensors are in production and will be available shortly.

 


XPS helps set the world record!

During the AMA meeting at the Joe Nall event in South Carolina, AMA district rep Tony Stillman gave a presentation on the outcome of the world record flying attempt at SEFF.  Tony stated that XPS, Spektrum, and FASST 2.4GHz radio systems made up the 59 of 113 radio systems used to set the world record.  XPS radio systems performed flawlessly.

At Joe Nall, XPS sponsored pilots flew jets, large 3D aircraft (a beautiful 46% Ultimate Biplane was amazing), and high speed wings.  RiteWingRC (www.ritewingrc.com) gave a spectacular demo, which included Jason Schulman doing 165mph aerobatics 1 foot off the deck!  Graupner factory pilots dazzled the crowd with high speed and precision aerobatic glider flying.

Special thanks go out to our XPS pilots, RiteWingRC, and our European distributor Graupner for providing pilots and their support!  We look forward to another spectacular event at Joe Nall next year!

XPS helps capture 2007 World Cup title!

Congratulations to Brent Daily, who won the 2007 World Cup in the Cracker Box division! Brent sent us the note and picture below: 

Hey Jim and Scott,

I won first place with my cracker box at the World Cup in Las Vegas this last weekend.  I used your system. I had a signal in my boat and my old radio was glitching so bad I couldn't run the boat.  Dean Rojas loaned me his back up system.

My boat was like it was on rails, it was so smooth through the turns I was able to get more aggressive with it. All I can say about your system is "WOW".  I'm emailing you a picture for your web site.  I'll stop by to see you guys.

Brent

XPS Wins on Water!

We received a letter and picture today from another XPS customer using our system to help achieve their victory:

Hi there

I just wanted to tell you that here in Denmark the XPS works super fine in my Gasoline boat (180cm long, 50ccm Polini engine with 10 hp, topspeed aprox 90 km/h)

I just got back from a powerboat meeting in Germany, and there it realy payed off having this system. Many other competitors only hade the normal 40 mhz and had many problems (interference and too many using the same frequenzy so they had to wait for a long time) but I was so lucky that I had none of this. The XPS system works fine, and soon the rest of my fleet will also have XPS..

Greetings from Denmark

Martin Carretero
