Operation Precautions
Warning
Do not operate two or more models
on the same frequency at the same
time.
Operating two or more models at same time on the
same frequency will cause interference and loss of
control of both models.
AM, FM (PPM) and PCM are different methods
of modulation. Nonetheless the same frequency
can not be used at the same point in time, regardless of the signal format.
Do not operate outdoors on rainy
days , run through puddles of water or
when visibility is limited.
Should any type of moisture (water or snow) enter any
compoent of the system, erratic opreation and loss of
control may occur.
Do not operate in the following
places.
-Near other sites where other radio control
activity may occur.
-Near people or roads.
-On any pond when rowboats are present.
-Near high tension power lines or communication broadcasting antennas.
Interference could cause loss of control . Improper installation of your Radio Control System in your model
could result in serious injury.
Do not operate this R/C system when
you are tired, not feeling well or under
the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Your judgment is impaired and could result in a dangerous situation that may cause serious injury to
yourself as well as others.
Mandatory Procedures
Extend the transmitter antenna to its full
length.
If the transmitter antenna is not
fully extended the operating
range of the radio will be reduced.
For Your Safety As Well As That Of Others
Prohibited Procedures
Full
Length
Always perform a operating range
check prior to use.
Problems with the radio control system as well as improper installation in a model could cause loss of control.
(Simple range test method)
Have a friend hold the model, or clamp it down or
place it where the wheels or prop can not come in
contact with any object. Walk away and check to
see if the servos follow the movement of the controls on the transmitter. Should you notice any abnormal operation, Do not operate the model. Also
check to be sure the model memory matches the
model in use.
Check the transmitter antenna to be
sure it is not loose.
If the transmitter antenna works loose, or is disconnected while the model is running signal transmission
will be lost. This will cause you to lose control of the
model..

Caution
Prohibited Procedures
Do not touch the engine, motor, speed control or any part of
the model that will generate heat while the model is operating
or immediately after its use.
These parts may be very hot and can cause serious burns.
For Your Safety As Well As That Of Others
Mandatory Procedures
Turning on the power switches.
Always check the throttle trigger on the
transmitter to be sure it is at the neutral
position.
When making adjustments to
the model do so with the engine not running or the motor
disconnected.
1. Turn on the transmitter power switch.
2. Turn on the receiver or speed control
power switch.
Turning off the power switches
Always be sure the engine is not

B/C
OFF
1. Turn off the receiver or speed control power switch.
2. Then turn off the transmitter power switch.
When operating your model
always display a frequency
flag on your transmitter antenna.
If the power switches are turned off in the opposite
order the model may unexpectedly run out of control
and cause a very dangerous situation.
When adjusting the transmitter on land while preparing to run (cruise), take measures
so that the wind will not knock over the transmitter.
If the transmitter is knocked over, the throttle stick may be accidentally set to the operating position and you may
lose control.
(Fail safe function) ---H.R.S or PCM mode only
Before running (cruising), check the fail safe function.
Check Method;
Before starting the engine, check the fail safe function as follows:
1) Turn on the transmitter and receiver power switches.
2) Wait at least one minute, then turn off the transmitter power switch. (The transmitter automatically transfers the fail
safe data to the receiver every minute.)
3) Check if the fail safe function moves the servos to the preset position when reception fails.
The fail safe function is a safety feature that minimizes set damage by moving the servos to a preset position when
reception fails. However, if set to a dangerous position, it has the opposite effect. When the reverse function was used
to change the operating direction of a servo, the fail safe function must be reset.
Setting example: Throttle idle or brake position

Installation Safety Precautions
Warning
Connector Connections
Be sure the receiver, servo, crystal
and connectors are fully and firmly
connected.
If vibration from the model cause a connector to
work loose while the model is in operation, you may
lose control .
Receiver Vibration Damping and
Waterproofing
Installation
(Car)
Dampen the vibration to the receiver
by mounting to the chassis or mounting plate with thick double sided tape
in electric powered models. In gas
powered models wrap the receiver in
foam and mount it where the vibration
is the least prevalent.
(Boat)
Dampen the vibration to the receiver
by wrapping it in foam. Waterproof by
placing it in plastic bag or watertight
radio box in model.
Install the heat sinks where they will
not come in contact with aluminum,
carbon fiber or other parts that conduct electricity.
If the FET Amp (Electronic speed control) heat sinks
touch other materials that conduct electricity a short
circuit could occur. This could result in loss of control
and damage to the system.
Servo Throw
Operate each servo over its full stroke
and be sure the linkage does not bind
or is loose.
The continuous application of unreasonable force to a
servo may cause damage and excessive battery
drain.
Servo Installation
When you install the servos always
use the rubber grommets provided in
servo hardware bags. Mount the servos so they do not directly come in
contact with the mount.
If the receiver is subjected to strong vibration or shock
erratic or loss of control may occur. If any moisture
comes in contact the receiver and servos you may
expertise the same result as well as damage to the
system.
If the servo case comes in direct contact with the
mount vibration will be directly transmitted to the
servo.
Receiver Antenna
Motor Noise Suppression
Do not cut or bundle the receiver antenna
Do not bundle the receiver antenna
together with the servo lead wires
Keep the receiver antenna at least 1
inch away from the motor and battery
and wires that handle heavy current
loads..
Cutting, bundling or routing the receiver antenna near
any devise that produce noise will reduce the operating range of the system and result in loss of control.
*Also route the receiver antenna away from metal,
carbon fiber and other parts that conduct electricity. These parts can transmit high frequency noise.
28
Electronic speed control
If this condition continues for a long time the servo
may be damaged and control will be lost.
Always install capacitors to suppress
noise when electric motors are used.
If capacitors are not properly installed you could experience erratic operation and reduced range as well as
loss of control.
Other Noise Suppression Methods
Be sure there are no metal parts in
your model which under vibration can
come in contact with other metal
parts.
Metal to metal contacts under vibration will omit a high
frequency noise that will effect the receivers performance. You could experience erratic operation and
reduced range as well as loss of control.

2. Modulation Mode Check
The T3VCS transmitter output signal format can be
changed to match the type of receiver. Check if the modulation mode is set to match the receiver used.
When using an FM receiver (e.g., R133F), the modulation
mode must be set to "PPM". When using a PCM receiver
(e.g., R113iP), the modulation mode must be set to
"PCM". When using a H.R.S receiver (e.g., R203HF), the
modulation mode must be set to "HRS". If this setting is
incorrect, change it with the HRS/PCM/PPM Select (See
page 88) function.
"H.R.S"
3. Throttle Mode check

Throttle speed/TH-SPEED (Throttle system)
Sudden trottle stick operation on a slippery road
only causes the wheels to spin and the vehicle cannot accelerate smoothly. Setting the throttle speed TH-SPEED/Smooth, quick starts possible
function reduces wasteful battery consumption
while at the same time permitting smooth, enjoyable operation.
No TH-SPEED/Tires slip and vehicle does not move
Operation
Throttle servo (amp) operation is delayed so that the drive wheels will not spin even
if the trottle stick is operated more than necessary. This delay function is not performed when the trottle stick is returned and at brake operation.
- Low side throttle speed (See [Operation range setup].)
Use when adjusting the speed from the neutral position to the set point.
- High side throttle speed (See [Operation range setup].)
Use when adjusting the high side speed from the set point.
Remark: Regarding the throttle speed set value; the actual delay value varies
depending on the system (HRS, PCM, PPM). The delay when the HRS system is used is approximately 1/
3 that of the PCM and PPM systems.

Start Function, Engine Cut/AT-START(Throttle system)
When the throttle stick is set to full throttle simultaneously with starting when the
track is slippery, the car wheels will spin and the car will not accelerate smoothly.
When the Start function is activated, merely operating the throttle stick slowly causes
the throttle servo to automatically switch from the set throttle position to a preset
point so that the tires do no loose their grip and the car accelerates smoothly.
Without Start function
Wheels spin
- Car does not accelerate
With Start function
Tires grip the track firmly
- Car accelerates
Start Function Operation
- When the throttle stick is moved to the preset position (throttle position: TH.P), the
throttle servo moves to the preset position.
- When the throttle stick is operated slowly so that the wheels will not spin, the car
automatically accelerates to the set speed.
- This function is effective only for the first throttle stick operation at starting. This
function has to be activated before every start.
- When the throttle stick is returned slightly, the Start function is automatically deactivated and the set returns to normal throttle stick operation.

3rd channel to control the front brakes.
It is possible to adjust the Brake Return Amount (ABP), Delay Amount (DLY) and
Cycle period (CYC) exclusively for the front brake (the 3rd CH). In doing so, you can
use the A.B.S. Function at the front side even if the A.B.S Function is off for the rear
brake (2nd CH). You can use the same procedure as the 2nd CH " A.B.S Function for
setting the Cycle Period (CYC), Duty Ratio (DTY) and Steering Mixing (STM).

- MST (master channel) -> ST Mixing is applied from steering
- SLV (slave channel) ->ST Mixing is applied to steering and the travel is increased.
- RGH -> 10% [When subtrim is centered (0%)]
- LFT -> 10% [When subtrim is centered (0%)]
- TRM -> OFF
- OFS -> 0%
- MXMD -> MIX

Fail safe function/FAIL SAFE
(This function can only be used with HRS or PCM1024 system receivers.)
Fail safe function
This function moves the steering, throttle and channel 3 servos to a preset position
when the receiver cannot receive the signal from the transmitter for some reason.
When the servo operation position is not set, this function operates so that the servos
remains in the position they were in immediately before reception was lost. When the
signal from the transmitter can be received again, this function automatically resets..
- For gasoline engine cars, it is recommended that the throttle channel be set to the
direction that applies the brakes.
- When the transmitter power is turned on, the transmitter transfers the fail safe data to the receiver
and continues to transfer the data every minute thereafter. Note that data for about 1 minute after
the receiver power is turned on is not transferred because usually, the transmitter power is turned
on first and the receiver power is turned on next.
Battery fail safe function
When the receiver battery voltage drops to a certain voltage or less, this function
moves the throttle servo to the position set by fail safe function. When the voltage
recovers, this function automatically resets.
