Battle-tested control systems at reasonable prices

Battle Tested

See for battle reports, photos and images of our control systems in action.
All of the control systems and components sold by Cheap Control Systems are literally battle-tested in order to prove their effectiveness, robustness and reliability. Systems are routinely installed in a variety of vehicles and tested for hours in some of the most rugged conditions seen by R/C vehicles.

C6C In Action
Take a look at this video made by Marc Methorst after he installed the C6C in his R/C tank. Easily steering with one hand while filming with the other.

Our Mission
You shouldn't have to pay high prices to get quality control systems for your R/C car, boat, tank, submarine or robot. In fact, part of the fun of participating in such hobbies is the exchange of technical information and solutions that have proven themselves over time. Cheap Control Systems was founded by two over-educated PhDs to provide R/C hobbyists with the the high-quality solutions they need, but that don't cost a lot of money in the process. Moreover, all Cheap Control Systems are designed to be easily fixed whenever necessary. (Of course, when do R/C hobbyists ever break anything?)
