Re: Spektrum DX8G2

Adrian, Stephen, thanks! I’ll see what I can find/do.
Aside, is it possible to remove the self centre springs on the RH stick control? Ultimately I’d like to control the tracks from the RH stick, in which case removing springs wouldn’t be necessary!
Thanks again.

Re: Spektrum DX8G2

Hi Adrian, Thanks for the reply. I was holding the stick back because the transmitter was warning me “Throttle High!” But of course you’re right, they should be centred for a tank. I don’t know why I’d be drawing too much current, it’s a bench test, with no load on anything. I’ll have to experiment ...

Re: Spektrum DX8G2

Would anyone know; why these two fuses blow? It seems triggered by the main drive motors. They don’t blow if I hold the spring loaded right hand stick back, but immediately I start to advance, they blow.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Mike Stannard Tiger I Tow Rope Set

Hi Adrian, I checked FoA website and the quality of Sixth Scale Icon products didn’t look as good, or as accurate (white metal vs Mike Stannard lost wax castings), so I was hoping to find something from the master himself....

Re: Spektrum DX8G2

Thank you Adrian! That fixed it. Now the rx’s are bound to the tx’s, but nothing happens in response to stick movement. I’ve plugged right track to elevator, and left track to throttle but there’s no response at all. Your help is much appreciated!

Re: Spektrum DX8G2

Hi Adrian,

Yes, frame rate and mode are set to 22ms, DSMX. I bought two, and both do the same thing, on two separate Armortek modules. I’m plugged into: Battery, Throttle and Elevator. With two identical units, it must be something I’m doing/not doing, but I don’t see it.

Any ideas?

Re: Spektrum DX8G2

Adrian, Stephen. Thanks for the replies. I’ve tried all angles, I wonder if I’ve somehow plugged it wrong? Stephen, when you had this issue, was there anything you did, you thought may have helped the two to bind?
