The PowerBox Pioneer is the latest development of a 14-channel power supply unit without voltage regulation, designed for HV servos. Since the unit has no voltage regulators, nor the large heat-sink surfaces required for them, it offers ultra-compact dimensions. Even so, the Pioneer still provides redundancy, as is the standard for all power supply units made by PowerBox-Systems. The output section and the switch controller are duplicated in order to guarantee maximum security.

A feature which makes the Pioneer unique in its class is its integral iGyro technology, which requires only the optional iGyro SAT as sensor unit. When plugged in, the sensor transforms the power supply unit into a high-performance 9-axis gyro of the latest generation. The integrated iGyro is ultra-simple to use, and can be set up in just a few minutes, ready for the initial trimming flight. The Pioneer offers any number of facilities for fine-tuning, making it suitable for complex models and perfectionists. Stick priority, lock-in feel and gyro characteristics can be adjusted separately for each axis and for two ranges, to name just the most important of them.

The whole package is rounded off by convenience and ease of operation, as PowerBox and Jeti pilots can set up and control all aspects of the Pioneer from the transmitter! Optionally - and for Futaba pilots - the Pioneer can be set up using the BlueCom adapter and the smartphone app, or using a PC in conjunction with the USB interface.

In performance terms the compact Pioneer concedes nothing to the larger backers. Many series of tests have been carried out with a 40 A load for several minutes, and we guarantee a continuous current capacity of 20 A. The elegant aluminium heat-sink ensures the necessary heat dissipation, and even the external switch is supplied in a top-quality anodised aluminium case, machined from solid.

As a further option, the new Pioneer is also available with the MicroMag magnetic switch. This switch can be installed visible or hidden and switched on with the included magnet.
