MrRCSound Sound System V4.1 With TT-25 For RC Planes
MrRCSound version 4.1 Sound System for Aircraft - MRS001
Do you wish your electric RC planes made more noise? The only scale detail missing from many electric RC planes is the noise of a real plane engine. The MrRCSound aircraft sound system adds a massive amount of realism to any RC plane and it is easy to install. NO MORE CUTTING HOLES FOR SPEAKERS! This system uses an ultra light 2.7oz - 3.1oz TT-25 transducer which effectively turns your whole plane into a speaker. Simply stick the speaker on the inside of the fuse of your plane using a little CA glue or Epoxy to hold it in place. This Aircraft sound system includes 6 different engine sounds which you can swap between at any time with the push of a button. The unit can sound like a Merlin, Lycoming, Continental, Pratt & Whitney Double Wasp, Daimler Benz 601 (BF-109), or a generic turbine. Also included are "auxiliary sounds" such as machine guns, cannons, a P-51 whistle, a Stuka siren, and various other sounds. There are multiple optional sound cards which may be purchased in order to add more engine and other auxiliary sounds. You select the sound you want to use by simply pressing a button on the unit. This unit also has a volume knob so you can easily change the sound level of the unit. This unit will fit planes 900mm and up depending on the room available in the fuse of your plane.
Also included is the "Airplane Finder" feature which allows you to locate your plane should you have a crash. This feature is only activated once you advance the throttle. When the sound unit detects no throttle input for 3 minutes, the alarm or "plane finder" sound will begin.
WARNING - Connecting the sound system backwards can damage FMS ESCs; read the wiring instructions carefully.

Motion RC First Impressions
We had the whole system hooked up in less than 5 minutes. Wow is this sound system LOUD! We fired it up indoors and found the sound actually hurt our ears. Fantastic! We love how easy it is to swap between different engine sounds and we also really like the sound of the guns, cannons, etc. This system has the most fantastic startup and shutdown sounds we've heard. The realism is amazing. The systems volume control comes in handy when doing setup and testing. More videos and flight tests to come soon.
Connections and required cables
We recommend using your flight pack to power the MrRCSound sound system. The unit includes a JST power connector and we recommend tapping off your main power connector. If your plane has a T connector, we recommend using one of our "pass through T connectors" with a JST connector tap. There are 4 sets of pins on the unit. These accept 4" male to male servo cables or 8" male to male servo cables which will connect to your RX. These are labeled "Servo 1-4”. Servo 1 is the the main engine sound. Servo 2-3-4 are used for auxiliary sounds such as guns, whistles, and pilot chatter. You will very likely also need a servo Y cable for the throttle channel
Options: (click the spare parts tab above to see all optional components)

Poor customer support
I have been trying to buy the Wii sound package and has proven to be very frustrating. Now the card stoped working in mid air and has not worked ever since. If you think my review is harsh, try contacting custome support.
Put this on my P51 55in wingspan plane. Sounds great but the gun sound was barely heard when flyby with the motor sound. But overall still nice. So realistic now flying my electric P51. Very easy to assemble. Good instructions
This isn't the most bizarre thing I've experienced in RC over the last forty one years, but I'd put it in the top ten. I jammed it into a small balsa PT 19. Changed the battery to keep the weight/CG in line. The start up was really cool, but I had serious doubts about being able to hear a significant amount of sound in the air. Well, the sound is great, borderline unreal. When I think about it, it makes me chuckle.
Sound System V4.1
Very good system. Work just fine.
VERY LOUD SOUND SYSTEM
I Have a few of these now and they are very loud. But the only fault I have found is the power wires easily break from the sound card so I started to put a big blob of foam tac were it is soldered. And glue the wires so they cant be pulled away because if they do break free you lose throttle power.....
very good !
Excellent item !
FINISHING TOUCH TO MY FLIGHTLINE SPITFIRE!!!
This is a great product and excellent addition to an electric propeller plane. Fitting and set up was straight forward with six sound options to choose from. The instruction leave a few things unclear but 10 minutes on YouTube soon had everything sorted. My FlightLine Spitfire has now come to life and sounds quite realistic both from near and far. The most important note is to allow your receiver/ESC to fully power up before you connect the sound card. The throttle must be at the lowest setting to ensure a point of 0 for the sound card to work correctly. I have converted a balance lead from the JST connector to the 6S balance plug, the unit is then plugged directly onto the Lipo Balance lead for power. I use the trim leaver to activate the sound card/engine start up procedure and then advance the trim leaver to have the prop at tick over. This helps the card to work throughout the flight because if you drop the power to zero at any time during the flight the card will deactivate. The problem here is when the throttle will be advanced again, re activated the card, the zero point of the sound will be at a mid throttle position giving the wrong throttle position/sound requirement. The gun function is cool also, sounding very realistic on a low strafing run. My next addition will be adding red LEDs to the gun tips which will have a Y lead to the gun sound giving me the sound of the gun and flashing red light for the bullets exiting at the same time.
Mr RC Sound
I bought this product to fit in my FlightLine 1600mm Spitfire. The system is easy to install and it has numerous options to enhance your aircraft. I fitted the speaker under the battery plate before the ESC and the control card on the side wall of the fuselage in the battery bay. The sound is good when the aircraft is in flight and on a low pass the gun fire sound is great. Excellent product and the best service from Motion RC EU.
