The Spektrum Lap Timing System consists of two simple components; the Lap Timing Base unit (SPMLTG5000) and the Lap Timing Receiver (SPMLTT2500) that work together with your Spektrum telemetry DSMX® or DSMR® receiver and telemetry capable transmitter like the DX9 or DX5R..
Lap Timer Base Unit
The Spektrum™ Lap Timer System is an extremely simple to use personal lap timing device that sends lap time information directly on your compatible Spektrum radio. Spektrum Gen II/III transmitter users have the added benefit of using the integrated voice alert system to call out lap times automatically so you never have to take your eyes away from the aircraft or vehicle. The Base Unit is a gate controller that weighs a mere 14.5 grams, is compact in size and easy to setup so that you can create a custom track in a backyard, local track, flying field, etc. Simply assign a gate as a Start and Finish or expand the system to include up to 9 more Base Units. This allows you to know what lap times are possible and what your speed is through a particular section or curve of the track. To take advantage of this valuable race practice tool, a Spektrum Lap Timer Receiver (SPMLTT2500) or IR Sensor (SPMLTT1000, for use with the SPMFCF400) as well as at least one Base Unit with IR LED Strip and a 3S LiPo (10–12.6V) is needed.
Lap Timer Receiver
The Spektrum™ Lap Timer System is an extremely simple to use personal lap timing device that displays lap time information directly on your compatible Spektrum radio. The Spektrum Lap Timer receiver is less than one-inch square, weighs just 4.2 grams and works with the Spektrum Lap Timer Base Unit/s (SPMLTG5000 , sold separately) to send lap time information directly to your compatible Spektrum radio. With the Spektrum Lap Timer System, racers can upgrade their telemetry-equipped model to assist with race practice, use it for local competitions, or just play head-to-head against friends. All it needs is a small space on your model and a 4.0–8.4V power source
