7 World Record

Spencer Lisenby is a pyronary in the world of Dynamic Soaring. We are proud to announce that the last 7 world record DS speeds he has made, have been made using Zepsus Magnetic Switch – the 15A switch now up to 564mph! Also the 7A switch has been used in Spencer’s smaller 2m model up to 524mph…

Spencer Lisenby own statement
For 10+ years now, I have used Zepsus magnetic switches exclusively in all of my models including the 2m Kinetic DP, the world record holding Transonic DP, and also now in the latest Swept Wing Transonic DP. The ability to cycle power without having an exposed switch or having to remove the wing from the model is a huge benefit in the windy, dusty environment where Dynamic Soaring usually takes place. In this type of use, traditional mechanical switches have a track record of failure from dust intrusion. Our high G environment (120+G) is also a cause for concern with mechanical switches that might inadvertently be turned off from inertial forces. I even use Zepsus switches now in simple foam combat gliders to prevent switches from being turned off mid-flight from contact with other models. I have never had a failure or any issue with a Zepsus switch at all. Hard to beat that track record! Thanks for creating such a great product! Keep up the good work!

The smallest and strongest magnetic switch to date

We am thrilled to share some exciting news with you – we have developed our smallest yet most robust switch ever! It’s so compact, yet incredibly powerful.

This device not only bears our reliable brand name but takes it up a notch as it can handle an impressive 25A and is suitable for up to 4S lipo. This speaks about its efficiency and reliability.

To make things even better, the magnetic switch will be ready for sale come November! You’ll be able to purchase this small but mighty switch in just a few short weeks. Mark your calendar because this is one innovation you surely wouldn’t want to miss out on!

We’re beyond proud of our team that has worked on creating what we believe is a game-changer in the industry. We hope that when you get your hands on one of these magnetic switches, you’ll feel the same way too.

Stay tuned for more updates regarding pricing and availability details closer to launch date.

Thank you for being part of our journey thus far. As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out if there are any questions or if there’s anything else we can assist with.

2022 F3F world championship Denmark

I’ve just come across an absolutely breathtaking video that I believe you’ll definitely love to watch!

It’s a thrilling video from the recent 2022 F3F World Championship held in Denmark. The action is intense, the skill on display is top-notch and the landscape they raced against- simply amazing. You can feel every bit of tension, excitement and adrenaline rush as if you were right there on the scene.

The pilots showcased exceptional manoeuvrability with their gliders. Taking the challenging turns in stride like it was nothing! You can truly see why these pilots are considered some of the bests in world. It will give you goosebumps no doubt.

Magnetic Keychain

There is news from our product development. This time it is a Magnetic Keychain for all those who want the strong magnet, but do not want to have it sitting by the belt. Designed with a large keychain so you have a greater chance of finding it again if you drop it. Made from good materials. It can withstand wind and weather, and will last many years.

Tom Chalfant’s Skipjack

I just received an email from Tom with an update from one of his project with the Magnetic Switch 7A Waterproof. One of the attached photos was so beautiful that I just have to share it. Here you may see why I am so fascinated by the picture with Tom’s Skipjack in the water.

Coming up soon – Magnetic Switch 45A HV

Capable of working with 7S Lipo and 45A and 90A peak. It’s designed with XT60 connectors at both ends and new on/off funktion, which provides a more intuitive on/off function. Place the magnet over the switch and wait a few seconds and it will turn on. Repeat to turn off again. It can be used as a power switch for the entire model including the driveline. The technology is the same safe and reliable technology with built-in failsafe function, ultra low stand-by consumption, like all our other product.

General purpose main power switch

Coming up soon – Double Magnetic Switch

Designed for RC jet planes and other double battery models. It’s designed with 2 parallel switches which are activated from one single point. Instead of turning on the ECU in one place and receiver in another. All is located in one place with the Double Magnetic Switch.

The batteries are separate so it is possible to use 3s on one switch and 2s on the other switch. It can be used as mentioned before for receiver and ECU. But also as a switch for a dual battery power unit, receiver and scale light or receiver and smoke unit etc.

The technology is of course the same safe and reliable technology with built-in failsafe function, ultra low stand-by consumption, and clean and easy on-off function, like all our other products.

Test of Magnetic Switch 7A Waterproof in RC submarine

We have been contacted by Tom Chalfant. He has been building RC models submarines in many years. He offered to test our new product, which is the Magnetic Switch 7A Waterproof. Below you see Tom Chalfant with his Seaview and a Jeff Porteus’ slightly larger version.

As Tom says: These subs run very much like the real subs. There are many different ways we submerge. We have systems that use a piston or pump that will bring in or push out water/air to change the buoyancy enough to submerge (Static diving) and others that use just forward motion to dive (dynamic diving). The electronics are kept in a WTC (Water Tight Container). This area usually stays very dry. The Seaview had an electronic switch, but it is not waterproof or resistant and condensation cause a short. I have been looking for a magenetic switch that would serve our hobby and offer protection like yours.

Designed for RC Sailboads

We are working on a new version of our popular magnetic switch. It is designed specifically for RC Sailboads. We have had several requests for a water repellent switch. Below is our first prototype. I am very satisfied with the result so far. Testing is already starting, more will come in order to ensure a good and reliable product.
