By connecting an R/C transmitter to a PC via the PCTx interface, you have the ability to “take control” of an R/C vehicle or robot directly from your PC or laptop. The PCTx sits in between your PC and transmitter and allows a PC side application to control a radio control vehicle just as you would with your hands on the controls. The interface plugs into a free USB port in your computer and to the radio transmitter used for controlling the R/C vehicle.

– Buddy Box/Trainer Port enabled radio required
– 50Hz refresh rate
– Independent servo control
– Adjustable pulse width
– C++ and VB.NET software API available
– Upgradeable firmware
– USB 2.0 compatible
– Cable Length: 3ft

The price of the PCTx USB PC to R/C Transmitter Interface is $49.99
