Communicator App Bluetooth Modul
The KONTRONIK Communicator App will allow you to wirelessly program your KOSMIK via your phone or tablet. In addition to programming, the Communicator App will allow you view live stream data from your KOSMIK as long as you remain in Bluetooth range.
The Bluetooth module is available, and must be used if you wish to create a wireless connection with the KOSMIK.
KONTRONIK now offers a KOSMIK Bluetooth Module. This allows the KOSMIK to communicate with your smart phone or tablet computer.
This app will be available as a free download in the App Stores.
Coming Soon from KONTRONIK- SCG Modul – Single Cell Governor
KONTRONIK is excited to introduce their first ESC-sensor combination in the industry to actively monitor individual battery cell health during flight.
The Single Cell Governor sensor connects to a sensor port on the KOSMIK and provides the user the benefit of intelligent battery monitoring through the balance leads. If the SCG module detects problems within a cell, it will disconnect or slow down the power from the motor, allowing you to land safely.
In addition to the added safety of intelligent battery monitoring, the Single Cell Governor also provides logging data of each cell’s voltage during use.
