Project Description



The Nano-minor stands out with its compact and robust design yet low weight.
The fact that, despite the small housing, many operating elements can still be integrated into the Nano-minor makes it the ideal transmitter for crane control.

The Nano-minor is the best-selling model of Nano radio remote controls. It convinces by its compact and robust design as well as its low weight. Despite the compact design, numerous different operating elements can be installed. For example, up to 6 single-axis and 3 two-axis joysticks are possible. However, other operating elements such as toggle switches, rotary switches and buttons can also be integrated without difficulty.
