Reedy Announces Blackbox 410R Competition Speed Control

Reedy Announces Blackbox 410R Competition Speed Control

Reedy motors have been longtime race winners, but always in combination with someone else’s speed control–until now, that is. With the debut of the new Blackbox 410R speed control, Reedy officially has a complete pro power system. Unsurprisingly, the Blackbox has all the features you would expect of a competition controller, including a machined aluminum case, fully adjustable performance parameters, and a ROAR-approved “blinky” mode for fixed-timing competition. The Blackbox also supports RPM datalogging and allows firmware updates when you combine it with the optional PROgrammer, which you can buy separately or as a combo with the Blackbox (see item nos. below). Associated’s team guys helped develop the Blackbox and will be racing it, so expect it to be legit. Full details from Reedy after the pics.
