  1. Simple usage. We used the start boards for our local competition. Works as promised.

  2. In the european competitions, we use phillips RC5 protocol, for start modules. Can this module be compatible with it?

    • Hi Simeon, unfortunately we are at other side. Our Microstart uses different protocol (Sony – SIRC). They have different timing routines.

  3. Hi! We are planning to buy 100 pcs for our competition are there any discount?

    • Hi Ronald! Please contact us from here: https://jsumo.com/contact/ Our microstart module’s price is very low, though. We will look at what can we do. Thanks for your interest!
