Default Cordless Renovations, LLC Acquires RCS

For Immediate Release
Cordless Renovations, LLC Acquires RCS

Cedar Rapids, Iowa, September 17th, 2010—In a two part deal, four train enthusiasts known as (“The Group”) acquired exclusive rights (The Sale & Distribution of RCS) from Tony Walsham, owner of Remote Control Systems (RCS-Beltrol) of Victoria, Australia to sell, distribute and manufacture the Australian made Elite Series of the RCS product line along with the Elsema radio based hardware. Today, an agreement was signed to sell those rights from (“The Group”) to (in no specific terms) Remote Control Solutions, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

The well-known (RCS) name Remote Control Systems and product lines sold by Dave Goodson (NWRCS) and Don Sweet (RCS of NE) will be licensed and sold under the RCS name by Remote Control Solutions of North American.

The new RCS “Elite Series” will expand its product line and offer a new design from the existing Elsema radio based hand controllers that will give you a broader frequency range with more control options, along with a new line of DC / DCC decoders, sandwich boards (that will dissipate heat) and an (optional) basic sound file (diesel or steam) that can be downloaded into the new decoders.

During this transition train enthusiasts can continue to order the RCS product line and have it installed directly from Dave Goodson at NWRCS via: http://dnkgoods.home.mindspring.com or Don Sweet at RCS of NE via: http://www.remotecontrolthrottles.com. Soon all of our combined efforts and new product line will be available to purchase and have installed through our new website at: www.remotecontrolsolutions.net.

“This is a win...win acquisition for all of thus,” say’s Rick Isard, owner of Cordless Renovations, LLC. “With two of the best train enthusiasts/promoters (Dave Goodson & Don Sweet) leading our design team, we are sure to make a hole-in-one."

The RCS product line is now owned, operated and manufactured here in the United States by Remote Control Solutions, a subsidiary company of Cordless Renovations, LLC.

The question is, was it misleading on purpose? and if so, why?

Rick.
Cordless Renovations have not acquired the name Remote Control Systems (RCS).
A group, with Dave Goodson as the spokesman, have acquired the rights to the old RCS ELITE series of ESC's that used the Elsema sourced R/C equipment. They also acquired the associated software to run the system plus the Protel files for the hardware.In fact, the business name Remote Control Systems (RCS) was offered for sale by me as a separate deal. The "Group" declined to buy the name.
Therefore, the name Remote Control Systems (RCS) is still owned by me (Tony Walsham) Worldwide.
Furthermore the "group" have agreed not to use the name Remote Control Systems, and the abbreviation RCS, in any of their future business names or instructions etc. This is a water tight written agreement.
The "Group" has agreed to come up with another business name that does not use the initials RCS.

The name Remote Control Systems (RCS) will continue to be used by me to promote and sell the Digital Proportional ESC's that use regular 2.4 GHz stick type radios.

You might want to do a little research before choosing a name. These guys might also have something to say about it ... Remote Control Solutions

Finding a name will probably take a little doing! I'm just happy that my chosen form of r/c is still being supported! I was getting worried that RCS seemed to be putting everthing into Beltrol. From previous experience, when a company starts promoting a whole new system and you have their older one, watch out! It usually isn't very long until "your" system is gone with no manufacturer support! From my standpoint, this is a win/win situation! The only thing I would like to see is a TX remote that has an antenna (preferably one of those rubber ones) that could be screwed on to extend the range of the RCS Elite unit! Would it make it comparable in range to a 2.4 Ghz unit? No, but it would perhaps double the range of the old TX unit! That would keep it competitive!

In any case, it seems the motivation is to keep the original equipment available, which is great.

Glad it all worked out.

Greg
