Re: Transmitter/receiver problems ??

Hi Peter, The new 4QD's were for the Tiger, so nothing changed on the Sherman.Am charging the batts as we speak, so will test it tonight when I get in, and see if they all record 12v +.Although they are old(ish) batts, I have been keeping them topped up over the last year, although not draining them...

Re: 4QD VTX 40 24 Series Controllers
