Default Introduction

Hi I’m Ian and I'm the sales manager at Firgelli Technologies. As an avid RC'er I thought I’d start with a little introduction to our products. We at Firgelli produce 18 models of actuators that are RC plug n play, plus another 3 (PQ12-6v) that can be used via RC with our controller board.

The L12-R
2155_0.jpg

This is our standard 6V receiver–ready linear servo. Plug it into your receiver and it works just like an analog servo. It comes in 3 stroke lengths: 30mm, 50mm and 100mm
and 3 gearing options:
50:1 Max speed: 23mm/sec Max load: 2lbs
100:1 Max speed: 12mm/sec Max load: 5lbs
210:1 Max speed: 5mm/sec Max load 10lbs

The L16-R:
IMGP2195c_400.jpg
Our new, more powerful 6V receiver–ready linear servo. Plug it into your receiver and it works just like an analog servo. The L16-S series comes in 3 stroke lengths: 50mm, 100mm and 140mm
and 3 gearing options:
35:1 Max speed: 32mm/sec Max load: 10lbs
63:1 Max speed 20mm/sec Max load: 20lbs
150:1 Max speed: 8mm/sec Max load: 40lbs


The PQ12-P with LAC:

The PQ12-P is our smallest actuator, it has one stroke length, 20mm and 3 gearing options:
30:1 Max speed: 25mm/sec Max load: 1.5 lbs
63:1 Max speed: 12mm/sec Max load: 4lbs
100:1 Max speed: 9mm/sec Max load: 6lbs
1825.jpg

The PQ12-P does not have its own internal controller, so an external controller board (like our Linear Actuator Control Board or LAC) must be used for it to understand an RC signal. The LAC board is always ½ price when purchased with a “P” series actuator.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions on using our actuators, I try to answer every email before I go home each day.
Yup, I hate waiting for replies too!

Welcome aboard Ian. Does it mean members of the forum will get special discount on your actuators?

Thanks for the welcome guys.

"Does it mean members of the forum will get special discount on your actuators?"
First question is always the same on every forum.

I have been known to launch coupons for no reason at all.

But before you tag us as expensive, understand our "R" series actuators came down in price from $90US/unit to $70US/unit in Jan 1013. Then in Dec 2013 we lowered our shipping rates (like who does that?) after we got FedEx and UPS into a dogfight over our business. UPS won.

Our esteemed leader actually wants them to be affordable. And now combined with our L16-R line, we have 18 models of linear servos to help power your projects.

Ian

Welcome aboard Ian, you helped me a while back with 12 actuators that I got for a project and ended up not using any of them.... And can't find where most of them went

I love to see pictures and videos of your creations so don't be shy about showing me whatcha got!
One of the best things about my job is seeing what everyone uses our actuators for.
The only thing I've done with them so far is putting retracts on my Quad.

Sorry for the video quality I was sort of bouncing around that day.
I'm mainly an air guy but I do have a couple of SC 4x4's I race locally, so there's still hope for me.
And I love everything RC....

Sure, sure.... You just don't want to have to see me in person... I understand. Haha. That sounds great. I'm not too far away in Sooke.

Sooke! That's very close. Our office is on Elk Lake.
I'll be out in Sooke a bit this summer checking out PacWest RC's new field.
I live on the Malahat myself.

Smile Re: Introduction

I would like to say that I ordered one of these actuators just over a week ago from Ian.
The service was great, fast shipping with UPS and the actuator has been put into the project I had in mind. It works very well and I am very happy with the result.
Thanks Ian
