Motion Control Module

Post by Armortek » Wed Oct 12, 2016 4:30 pm

There is an error in the Motion Control Module Instructions.
Transmission frame rate compatibility is selected using switch 1, not switch 3.

I've been doing the bench test this morning and I have a question. I use Futaba T4YF-2.4G four channel radios on all my tanks and I've always used the right radio lever up and down for both motors F/R and left radio lever moved side to side for steering left/right.

The way the Motion Pack operates now is each drive motor uses each separate L/R lever for forward/reverse independently. The way it works now the right lever is F/R on the RIGHT motor and the left lever is F/R on LEFT motor.

I use Sabertooth 2X25 ESCs on some of my tanks and when they're installed I use the DIP switches to change to the way I like to drive.

I haven't touched your Motion Pack DIP 4 switch board yet but which switch do I change to make it work like I like? Do I need to flip switch 2,3, or 4 on your panel?

THANKS! Mike

The Sabertooth has a "Mixed Mode" where you can configure it to drive as you want. The Motion Control Module doesn't have that functionality.

If you want to drive as you have before, you'll probably need to enable Elevon mixing on the T4YF.
