CHECK:
a) Use only fresh, alkaline cells, all of the same brand.
b) Make certain that the contacts in the battery holder stay clean by using a pencil eraser to gently remove any
corrosion or dirt that may accumulate on them. It is recommended to do this each time you install fresh cells
into your transmitter.
c) If using the rechargeable 9.6V battery pack, simply remove the battery holder by pulling out the connector
from the transmitter. Then plug-in the battery pack connector to the transmitter.
d) When the rechargeable battery is installed in the transmitter, it can be charged through the external charging
jack located on the transmitter.
CAUTION:
a) Do not attempt to charge alkaline batteries, they may explode!!
b) When charging the rechargeable battery, set the power switch on “OFF” position before charging. The charger
plug must be correct type (“+” inside and “-“outside, type TAMIYA N-3U or equivalent). The wrong type may
burst causing personal injury and damage.
c) Always be sure the batteries are loaded in the correct polarity order. If the batteries are loaded incorrectly,
the transmitter may be damaged.
d) When the transmitter is not used for any short or long period of time, always remove the batteries from the
transmitter.
Receiver battery
replacement/installation
Insert 4 fresh AA cells into the receiver battery
holder. Make sure the batteries are located in
the correct polarity order. Maintain the battery
contacts in the same way as described in
previous section.
Insert the switch harness plug into the receiver
socket marked “BATT”.

If you are not familiar with all the control system. Do the “bench test” before to install all the devices on the model.
Always follow the “transmitter on first, off last” procedure.
Always install the receiver as far as possible from the motor, ESC, power battery, motor wires.. or other noise source.
Especially, do not route the motor wire next to the receiver, crystal or receiver antenna.

BINDING PROCESS
a
c
b
LED: RED
d
LED: GREEN
A binding feature is included in the ACE RC Cougar 2.4GHz spread spectrum system to ensure the transmitter
and receiver bind properly and prevent interference from other controllers.
To manually bind Tx/Rx, please proceed as per the following steps:
a. Press and hold the "Binding SW" button on the back side of the transmitter while turning on the transmitter.
b. Release the "Binding SW" button after the green LED flashes indicating the transmitter is binding.
c. Press and hold the bind button on the receiver while turning on the receiver. Binding process will then start
automatically.
d. Successful binding is confirmed by LED changing from a quick blinking and then remain solid on the transmitter.
The LED will turn green on the receiver. Once binding is complete, the system will automatically connect.
NOTE: Binding process may take 3~10 seconds to execute. If binding fails, the LED on the receiver will turn
red. Please turn off the power and repeat the steps from a) ~d).
How to Set the Fail Safe (F/S) Position
How to Set the Fail Safe (F/S) Position
1. After binding the transmitter and receiver, you can set up the F/S position.
2. Turn on the receiver power and then press the “Binding SW” button on the receiver.
3. Move and hold the throttle trigger to the F/S servo position where you want to set (Caution: Always set the throttle
trigger to the neutral or full brake position incase of any unexpected control error!).
4. When the LED blinks GREEN*, release the “Binding SW” button.
5. The LED turns to solid RED* and then back to solid GREEN* 2 seconds later. The F/S set up has now been
activated.
6. To check the fail safe is working properly, move the throttle trigger to the full forward (full brake), hold it on this
position and then turn off the transmitter. The F/S function should move the throttle servo to its fail safe position.
7. If the F/S set up fail, try the steps from 1) ~6) again. After the F/S is completed, you can just start your operation.
FUNCTIONS
1. Servo Reversing
It is sometimes necessary or convenient to reverse the output
direction of the servo. The direction of the rotation for each individual
servo can be changed by simply flipping the reversing switch that
corresponds to the channel number on the receiver where the
servo is plugged in. Under normal circumstances, Ch1 is steering,
Ch2 is throttle, and Ch3 is for extra function.
Using the reversing switches as needed.
2. Steering Trim
●
Neutral position trim
By turning the Steering Trim knob clockwise or counter-clockwise,
the steering neutral can be adjusted as needed.

Servo travel
Changing the trim can affect the overall settings. When adjustments are made with this trim, it is recommended
to re-check your installation for maximum servo travel.
HELPFUL HINT
If it takes most of your trim movement to get a servo to the neutral position, re-position the servo horn or
servo saver on the servo and inspect your linkage installation.

FUNCTIONS
3. Throttle Trim
●
Neutral position trim
Once the neutral position of the throttle trigger is set, by turning
the Throttle Trim knob clockwise or counter-clockwise, the
throttle neutral can be adjusted as needed.
HELPFUL HINT
When using an ESC, set the throttle trim to neutral and make adjustments to the speed control.
On a gas powered model, set the trim to neutral and adjust the throttle linkage to the point where the
carburetor is fully closed in accordance with your engine instruction manual.
●
Servo travel
Trim adjustments will affect the overall servo travel; check the brake side (backward) movement when
changes are made.
HELPFUL HINT
If you have used most of the trim movement to get the servo to the neutral position, re-center the servo
horn closer to the neutral position and inspect your throttle linkage.
4. Throttle ATV
Throttle Adjustable Travel Volume/ATV provides the function to
preset independently throttle travel of the servo either side of
neutral. It offers easier adjustments to set the throttle operation
at idle and maximum power.
■
5. Steering D/R
Steering D/R allows you to change the steering travel while running
by turning the dual rate dial as shown to correct over-steering and
under-steering problems by increasing or decreasing steering
sensitivity. You can adjust sensitivity of your model to your own
preferences with this function.
