Today I want to announce a major modelrailroad project !
Last Christmas, I got an Esu Ecos II as a present.
Because I do own a lot of MFX locomotives, I needed a central command station that could handle MFX,MM-I,MM-II,MM-FX, DCC and DCC+. This Ecos II handles it all !
While in my search for a wireless handheld controller, I stumbled upon different devices. Most of my interest went to Roco LocMaus and Esu Mobile Control II.
Both do have advantages and dis-advantages. I got hold back by the majority of dis-advantages !
That is why I decided to build my own controller (software AND hardware), and this is where the journey begins …
