CONTROLLERS

Controllers : For the serious hobbyist or racer we recommend Parma Economy controllers.  They are available in a range of resistances suited to T-jets and AFX cars through highly modified magnet (Super G+, G3, Storm, etc) cars, are serviceable, and are adult sized for better feel and control.  The job of the controller is to feed power to the car in direct proportion to how much the trigger is squeezed.   A good match produces response throughout the range of the controller.  A bad match produces a soft response, i.e., you squeeze the controller and the car does not respond until the trigger is 1/3 to ˝ way down the resistor. Here the resistor has too high a rating for the car it is trying to control.    Equally undesirable is a ‘fast’ controller response, here the car takes off like a shot when the trigger is pulled back lightly.  This is due to a resistor with too low an ohm rating for the car you are trying to control.

 

Controller handles are translucent and come in blue, purple, red and yellow.  Give 1st, 2nd and 3rd choices for handle color.

 

Parma Economy 35 ohm controller – For the hobbyist or racer who races stock or lightly modified Super G+, Tyco 440X2s or Life Like Fast Trackers.  Not recommended for t-jets. Comes with three wires, open leads, (no plug or alligator clips).  The third wire is for electric brakes, the schematic for wiring your track for electric brakes is on the back of the box, or ignore the third red and just use the black and white wires for normal operation.  $25.79 each.

 

Parma Economy 45 ohm – A good all around controller for stock 440’s, Super G+,   AFX’s  and lightly modified T-jets.  Comes with three wires, open leads (no plug or alligator clips).  The third wire is for electric brakes.  The schematic for wiring for electric brakes is on the back of the box, or ignore the third red  and just use the black and white for normal operation.  $25.79 each color of handles vary.

 

Parma Economy 60 ohm – The t-jetter’s favorite.  This controller is a good match for the stock thunderjets power requirements. Comes with three wires, open leads (no plug or alligator clips).  The third wire is for electric brakes.  The schematic for wiring for electric brakes is on the back of the box, or ignore the third red  and just use the black and white for normal operation.  $25.79 each color of handles vary.

 

Parma Economy 90 ohm controller – For the t-jet racer who wants to smooth out his t-jet’s response.  This controller is best for those who race t-jets only. Comes with three wires, open leads (no plug or alligator clips).  The third wire is for electric brakes.  The schematic for wiring for electric brakes is on the back of the box, or ignore the third red  and just use the black and white for normal operation.   $27.49 choice of colors. 

 

 

NJHobby/Parma 35/45/60 ohm controller – We make these ourselves especially for the racers with a few different cars.  These controllers are 60 ohms for stock t-jets, a flip of the microswitch and they are  45 ohms for modified t-jets (or stock Tycos or Super G+) and one more flick of the switch and they are 35 ohm controllers for well modified t-jets (super two magnets, mean green arms etc) or lightly modified Tycos and Super Gs.  Comes with three wires, open leads (no plug or alligator clips).  The third wire is for electric brakes.  The schematic for wiring for electric brakes is on the back of the box, or ignore the third red  and just use the black and white for normal operation.  $47.00 each color of handles vary.

 

 

NJHobby/Parma 25/35/45 ohm controller – Generally not for the t-jet racer as there is no stock t-jet setting.  Good for Modified t-jets up to Modified Tycos, G+s and P3s.  Comes with three wires, open leads (no plug or alligator clips).  The third wire is for electric brakes.  The schematic for wiring for electric brakes is on the back of the box, or ignore the third red  and just use the black and white for normal operation.  $47.00 each color of handles vary.

 

NJ Hobby/Parma 70-80-90 ohm controller – With the addition of a 90 ohm controller to the economy line, we have been able to make a great t-jet controller for the hobbyist and the racer.   This high resistance controller is very good for controlling most stock and modified (high ohm motor) thunderjets and Johnny Lightning/Auto World cars as the high resistance allows the cars to travel smoothly through twisty road courses without the jerkiness associated with lower resistance controllers.  $47.00 choice of colors

 

NJ Hobby/Parma 125100/80 ohm controller – These modified Parma Controllers are equipped with aftermarket 125 ohm epoxied resistors which provide the ultimate in control for the serious t-jet racer.  This controller is a choice of racers at the Shootout, Jersey Rumble and several have made their way across country to the Fray.  $59.99 choice of colors.

 

NJ Hobby 125 ohm resistor.  Make your own t-jet racer controller with these custom wound/epoxied resistors made to fit into the Parma Econo or Sebring (single resistor) controllers.  This is a simple replacement using your controller with little or no soldering required.  $21.00 each. 

 

Alligator clips – Set of three come with color coded boots (red, white and black).  $4.00 the set of 3.

 

Parma Turbo Controller kit less Resistor This do it your self kit comes with a heat sink equipped clear (only)  controller handle, longer nylon trigger mechanism heavier gauge wires with color coded boots and alligator clips already attached.  Complete instructions make this an easy put together with your favorite resistor.  Kit $40.99

 

Parma Economy Resistors are available in 15, 25, 35, 45, 60 and 90 ohm values.  $9.99 each.

 

Parma HO Plus Resistors (fully coated) are available in 15, 25, 35 and 45 ohm values only.  $12.99 each.
