Nine Reasons to choose Flex Radio Control from Reel UK

TWO Transmitters

  • Each system comes complete with a spare transmitter in either 4, 8 or 12 button configurations, in case you accidentally damage or lose one.


  • Unlike many other radio remote control systems, Flex systems use top-quality microprocessors (encoding, decoding and RF) from well-known chip manufacturers such as MICROCHIP and CHIPCON. Every system is bench tested for 72 hours before delivery.


  • Competitively priced, this system is amazing value.

Ex-Stock Availability

  • All standard and some special systems are available for immediate despatch or collection.

User Programmable

  • The Flex system is equipped with more than 200 user-programmable functions to suit all types of applications – no specialist programming is required.

Unique I-CHIP Design

  • The I-CHIP functions similar to SIM cards used on mobile phones, with the ability for the user to transfer information and settings from one transmitter to another. The Flex system can also be set to full continuous transmission via the I-Chip setting (range: 1~60 minutes or continuous).

Durable & Rugged Enclosures

  • The transmitter and receiver enclosures are manufactured from industrial-strength nylon and fibreglass composite materials that are highly resistant to breakage and deformation even in the most aggressive environments. The enclosures are protected electrically to IP66.


  • Established for over 50 years, Reel UK has the knowledge and expertise to offer a comprehensive back-up and repair service within 24 hours.
