New SUPER Dead Rail Starter Set

We happy to announce our new, SUPER Dead Rail Starter Set! The new set includes everything that comes with the very popular Dead Rail Starter Set, PLUS our new Turnigy E3 LiPo Charger.

TurnE3The Turnigy E3 Compact LiPo charger is a very simple to use charger for 2S and 3S battery packs. No need for additional power supplies, as this little unit has its own built in power supply. The E3 charger is capable of charging a single 2S or 3S LiPo pack automatically. Like the Turnigy P403 LiPo Charger, the E3 is designed to work with all Turnigy NanoTech LiPo 2S or 3S battery packs for fully automatic battery charging.

Unlike the advance P403 LiPo Charger, it’s not possible to alter the charging rate, nor can you charge two 7.4V LiPo packs simultaneously. Additionally, the E3 can’t be used “in the field” from a 12V DC source (so, if you also fly R/C airplanes or helicopters, you can’t easily take it to the flying field to recharge your flight pack batteries). However, we feel the E3 offers a great value, especially if all you have is a small layout and only a handful of locos, or if you don’t wish to “fast charge” a battery pack (which we really don’t recommend anyway).

Tx21ManualWe’ve also updated the original Dead Rail Starter Set to include our new Tx21 Assembly and Operations Manual as a download, as well as made it available as an individual download in the shop.

Which reminds me … A bunch more work has been done on the catalog pages. We think they’re now a little better organized, so it should be easier to find things.
