Indiana, USA. I have already contacted PowerBox Americas. They will do the update. Thank you for your help.
Where do I send the pump for the update? How much will it cost?
I have had the V2 smoke pump for some time. I'm using a Futaba 14SG transmitter. As the manual explains:
This version of the software was supplied between 2010 and 10/2014. The pump
controller behaves like a conventional speed controller:
Transmitter -100% » pump off
Transmitter +100% » full pump power
a) You wish to set 30% pump power; this is the usual requirement for petrol engines.
For this the transmitter travel has to be set up as follows:
- 100% pump off
- 60% pump on
With most transmitters this is only possible by setting up a mixer, since the upper
limit of travel cannot be set to a value below 0%. Our Expert Forum includes suggested
solutions for various radio control systems.
Can someone help me with the mix required to be able to adjust the full range of the pump?
Thank you. You have been very helpful. I have decided that using the regulators is too complicated. I will use 2S Li-Ion batteries instead.

Not sure what you mean "don't have voltage display" Although the unit has a display screen it will be hidden on this project and not routinely accessible. I will rely on the external telemetry function and preflight check for battery voltage.
Would there be a conflict if I regulated the input to 9.0 volts? I don't want to use LiPos.
My original plan was to use 3S LiFe batteries, 9.9 volts for my Competition SRS. Now I'm not sure this is a good idea. Is there a way to make this work?
I'm have a pump with no version number. It powers up correctly, green light is lit. However, I cannot adjust the "on" endpoint. Pump turns off ok but the runs the same in the on position from 0 to 100.
