So, when is this radio gonna be in stock? Considering that usually it takes forever for a HobbyKing packages to get to me(I'm in US), I have a dilemma now thinking whether I should by here at all, because I don't want to spend whole summer waiting for my stuff. I wand to spend summer using them.
The 3 channel one is out of stock too. The only one in stock is Turnigy 3SX. 26 bucks difference from HK GT-2. Looks like I'm gonna have to by it from HK Global warehouse. They have it in stock there. I wander how much longer will the delivery take because of that?
I bought one on hobby king when I was first starting rec stuff. I thought something was wrong with is (it was really cause I use a plane ESC) so I returned it. Got mine from the us and then they were out of stock by the time my money was refunded? I went on eBay and found the exact same one rebranded under thew fly sky name for 2 bucks more and shipped from america. I love hobbyking but sometimes buisness goes elsewhere. I would go on eBay and try to find one in america like I did. Hope this helps
Just bought 2 of these HobbyKing GT-2 radios and 2 Turnigy GTX3. I will use 8 AA NiMH 1.2v 2200mah batteries in each radio, I need the optional wall charger that will charge them in the transmitter. Is it for sale on HobbyKing?
you can use any 12-volt adapter rated at 300ma or less, just connect over night. Any more power can overcharge batteries, less than 100ma would take forever. Just don't leave connected for more than 12 hours. This is how most transmitter chargers I have seen work anyway. Also the plug is tip-positive. (pin is positive, outside is negative)
This will be the first time I have changed my tx and rx in a car. My nitro car is a jato 3.3. Does this transmitter have a 50% to 50% ratio for throttle/brake? That is what the owners manual calls for.
If you're talking about the connections/wires at the receiver itself * The center wire is positive (red wire or hot as you describe it). The outer most wire, on the end, or edge of the receiver is - negative. Then third and last is the inner wire which is the position signal for the servo or ESC. Hope this helps and is understandable - fellow RCer !!
The steering on my son's Monster Beetle has stopped working. I thought it was the steering servo but when I hooked a new servo up it was still not responding to the left/right controls. When the cars power is turned on the steering just goes to the center position. The throttle controls still work fine. What is the best fix for this issue?
It changes the amount of throw/ the turn radius to make it more controllable at high or low speeds.(Ex. If you have a 65mph car, you might turn the dual rates down to prevent running off the road.)Hope this helps.
No,but I do run 8aa rechargable duracell in mine and it lasts a very long time,this controller does not drain the batts quick.It also has a charger plug,so you can install the batteries and charge them in the transmitter.Hope this helps.JK.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^I must disagree^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
There might be different production runs with slight variations,but mine has paint and decals.
I am almost certain it's identical to the pictures.
The front plate right under antenna is a decal,anything with righting is a decal,and all the rest is paint.You can even see the minute overspray if you look real good.
Antenna lengths should never be altered.
If you are making an antenna that's another story.
Antenna length is based on frequency.
Make it longer and it will most likely get less range/reception.
Unless its real long!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL
I think what RICK is talking about us the antenna tube and not the actual wire from the receiver. Since the wire from the reciever is only about 6 inches and most antenna tubes are about a foot...it's ok to cut the actual tube. Do not cut the actual antenna wire from the receiver. But it is ok to cut the antenna tube down and it won't affect the range
The points mean nothing to me, anymore, so, don't pat yourself on the back thinking that you've accomplished something by giving zanek, the credit, personally, I'm happy for him. I stopped answering questions for credits, months ago..
A. Install the battery to 2.4G transmitter and shut it down.
B. Insert the matching lines to the channel BIND /CH3 port of the receiver. (Figure.
C.Connect the receiver battery to VCC port of the receiver, on the same time the two LED are flashing
D.Press and hold the button on the transmitter, and then switch on the power supply.
F.Release the match button on the transmitter, take out the match line.
E.Observe the LED on the receiver, if find that the LED is not flash anymore and that mea
It does have a charge port(charger sold separately) located on it, as well as, a DSC 3.5mm port for computer connection, but the cable is sold separately and is a mono to usb style cable, that you can use to practice on the built-in simulator. No servos come with this Tx, but a 2.4ghz HobbyKing Rx does.
They dont have left hand pistol radios but how ever what you can do is hold controller upside down in your right hand i know its strange but it works.. just reverse steering servo. My son does this he is left handed.
the reason why there are no left hand transmitters is because making a transmitter than can go right and left is about 25pcnt more expensive. no one wants to pay more than they have to for the unfortunate ~10 percent of the world that is left handed.
Man it would not even be hard to make the actual wheel posts go straight through like on a fishing pole.Undo the nut flip wheel to the other side and bam.
1 thumbs up!
Top notch digital control. Can't beat the price and it works great. I no longer have to worry about other peoples signals.

You can't find anything else comparable online at this price - even the AM radios are more. This was exactly what I was looking for (a radio without servos since I already have a bunch). Comparable to my HiTec Aggressor.

i jusr receved my gt-2 2.4 gig raidos thay were way more than i thout thay would be... now that i got them would not trade for any thing thay work very well easy to install no bonding need done for you before you get them.. no gliches no dead zones . outstanding for the money... if you need a 2.4 raido for a car/ boat then buy well wourth the money... keep upi the good work.

Great 2.4 TX/RX system for the price. I used them in my Electric Boats without a single problem. And the receiver are inexpensive. That is just what I need if I sink my boat. Simple and easy to configure and use..
