    Default Air Launch King Remote release

    Does anyone have any feedback on the Air Launch King Max Power Remote Control System. It seems very affordable and I understand that it was used at the UKC 2003 Fall Grand.

    This is what I received from Air Launch King in an e-mail.


    MAX POWER REMOTE control system (MPR)

    Air Launch King Inc. is proud to present the MAX POWER REMOTE control system. After many complaints of normal remote controls not being reliable and a lack of power, The MAX POWER REMOTE was designed. The MAX POWER REMOTE was selected and used by the UKC Fall 2003 Grand Hunt Test Committee over Tritronics and Dogtra. The MAX POWER REMOTE receiver uses a 12 VDC rechargeable battery that is 3 times stronger. With increased power recharging is decreased and reliability is increased. The receiver is housed in a water proof PVC housing which protects the battery and electronic components and has an attached 6 feet output cord which requires not additional cords. The receiver uses a wire for its antenna with a 500 yard operating range. The transmitter will control 4 receivers by pushing 1 of 4 buttons instead of rotary switches. Works with all wingers, either Solenoid or Servo releases, like the Shur-Flyte, Zinger Winger, Max 5000 launchers, release boxes, and more. The cost of the receiver is $110.00 and the transmitter, and charger is $70.00.

    In one edition of the HRC magazine it had a correction to this ad which stated that Airlaunch King remotes were not chosen over tri-tronics or dogtra.
    As far as I can tell Airlaunch king uses components from this site out of Australia. www.multicode.com.au/index.html
    There has been discussion about this on the Fuge.

    I have seen the Elsema stuff before and have actually thought about using them/selling them, still might if I can get the reciever down to a "workable" size, but it's nice to have the "grunt" of 12 volts to the solenoids. I was curious to see what Air king was charging.

    Default Price V cost

    I have four of them and the price I believe was 160.00 for the first...and 60.00 for the other three.The cost for me was less than free,when you take into consideration the absence of down time and charging.With the zinger wingers and the uplander zingers in tandem with the airlaunch king remotes,we have 0 no birds.

    Jay... I got you e-mail last week. Thanks... It really seems that these are great releases. Do you know how they performed at the 2003 Fall Grand?

    (2) Receivers $220, Transmitter/Charger $70 = $290
    (3) Receivers $330, Transmitter/Charger $70 = $400
    (4) Receivers $440, Transmitter/Charger $70 = $510

    The Air LaunchKing are Elsema Products. I have built several from ELSEMA and are easy to build. You can order directly form ELSEMA and save save.

    I have recently become a Canadian dealer for Elsema and will be able to offer very competitive pricing on these products in the new year once Misty Lake Labradors & training products is online. I will be offering cost effective "plug and play" electronics, no wiring/battery/packaging concerns. And best of all I'm just up here in Canada, not Austriallia. PM me for details (shameless plug! )
