This controller is designed to replace the stock controller provided with DeAgostini Millennium Falcon and enhance the model with additional features. The controller can also work with any other Studio Scale Millennium Falcon or comparable in size (1/43 scale). It allows you to light up and remotely control the engine, landing lights, warning lights, headlights, cockpit, gun ports, internal devices, and do some additional light effects. The engine light effects are accompanied by the sound effects of a working engine. Once the desired light settings have been set using the potentiometers, the controller can be operated remotely with a Bluetooth-enabled device such as a cell phone or a tablet.

The highlights of the controller:

  • Remotely operate light and sound effects of the individual components of the ship using Bluetooth
  • Up to 58 super-bright LEDs in the engine strip for an unprecedented level of brightness
  • 56 LEDs in the cockpit circuit board for realistic light effects* 
  • 16 LEDs for the landing lights circuit*
  • 8 Red LEDs for the warning lights circuit*
  • Compatible with DeAgostini boarding ramp
  • Compatible with DeAgostini power and battery box connectors
  • Compatible with DeAgostini headlights and landing lights
  • Ability to customize audio effects by uploading your own audio files
  • Protection from a higher than nominal voltage
  • Protection from reversed polarity

* Available separately

The set comes with the following:

  • The controller
  • Low-frequency audio speaker

The controller is built on a custom-designed board to match the mounting holes for the stock board.

The board carries Adafruit Feather M0 - Bluetooth enabled Arduino compatible board built on ARM Cortex processor, Sound FX board, and an amplifier.

The controller uses the existing power connections for DeAgostini Millennium Falcon. Although the stock battery box or power supply can be used, it is recommended to use the supplied power adapter.

The soundboard can be removed from its socket and connected through a micro-USB cable to a computer to upload custom audio files. It is also possible to install a different soundboard with higher memory size.

The engine light strip consists of up to 58 super-bright RGB LEDs - the highest density of the LEDs available. The strip is applied to the existing placeholders for the stock strips. The ridge between the placeholders may need to be sanded down.

The color and the light effect of the engines can be adjusted by rotating the first two potentiometers located at the bottom left side of the board. The other two potentiometers set the color of the light coming out of the LED fiber optic couplers and the speed of the light effects of the cockpit LED board.

The LED fiber optic couplers are used for various light effects on the gun ports, interior devices such as communication panels. Each coupler has 4 LEDs, the color of which can be adjusted by turning the third potentiometer.

The couplers come pre-assembled (The fiber optic strands are not provided):
