Required R/C System

  • This kit requires the following items (not included in kit): a 4ch transmitter (self-neutral stick type with lever-type 4ch sliding trims), a 4ch receiver, and 2 servos (3 when using with 56505 Motorized Support Legs.) Electronic speed controller and receiver battery (6V) are not required.
  • Recommended R/C transmitter/receiver units: Futaba ATTACK 4YWD-2.4G / R204 GF-T or Futaba ATTACK 4WD T4VWD/FP-R114H. *Transmitters with click-touch type trims may cause difficulty when using with Tamiya Multi-Function Control Units.
  • If using transmitter other than those recommended above, ensure that is it self-neutral type and uses sliding trim levers. Transmitters with no self-neutral system or non-sliding trim levers (e.g. click-touch) may not realize optimum efficiency.
  • Some connectors may not be compatible, or modification may be required.
  • Never use with wheel trigger type transmitters or transmitters without trims.
  • PCM receiver, multi-channel receivers cannot be used with this kit.
  • When installing this unit into conventional truck models, servo extension cables may be required. Use extension cables (sold separately) to ensure cable length exceeds 50cm. 
  • Only use with Tamiya 7.2V or 6.6V battery packs. Batteries with higher voltage may damage unit.
