TRACK POWER ONLY. Simply connect track pick ups to TT on the ESC and switch track power ON.
TRACK POWER WITH BATTERY BACK UP. Simply connect track pick ups to TT on the ESC and switch track power ON. Battery pack is connected to the + & - battery terminals on the ESC.
BATTERY POWER ONLY. Connect battery pack to either the Loco input or the + & - battery terminals on the ESC.
The decoder part of the system is designed to accept the SPEKTRUM & PLANET RX's plugged in upside down without the use of servo cables. Using the Hobby King & E-SKY brands requires the separate purchase of the # DEC-ADAPT.
Some RX's such as the Spektrum 6210 now have servo pin spacing too wide for the socket on the decoder.
You can still use these RX's by separately purchasing the # SIG-ADAPT kit.

*All battery packs state a NOMINAL voltage on the pack.
When freshly charged the actual voltage can exceed the NOMINALvoltage.
eg. An 18 volt Ni-Cd pack can read 24 volts when fully charged.
RCS takes into account the excess voltage when batteries are freshly charged when listing what is the maximum voltage you can use.
Likewise the NOMINAL voltage also takes into account the likely voltage drop when discharging.
It is the NOMINALvoltage on the battery pack that is the maximum & minimum voltage you can use.
# PRO-3 BASIC WIRING.
BINDING THE RX TO THE TX.
Ideally "BINDING" the TX & RX together is done before installing the RX into the # DEC-U decoder part.
This can be done with any regular R/C RX battery pack and following the R/C maker instructions.
If this is inconvenient the # DEC-U has a plug in terminal for binding SPEKTRUM & HOBBY KING RX's in situ.
Please note. The RX's shown plugged in below are for illustration purposes only.
They are sold separately & not supplied with the RCS # PRO-3.
SPEKTRUM & PLANET R/C's simply plug in upside down on the # DEC-U.
The following pics showing how to plug in the RX are for the older version # DEC-U & ESC.
The only difference is how the power in - motor out, lights and sound triggers are connected.
The Planet 7 channel RX cased version is a bit bulky. It fits better removed from the case.
Vertically mounting an RX can be inconvenient.
They can be set up for remote connection with the separate purchase of the # SIG-ADPT kit.
E-SKY & HOBBY KING R/C's can be used with the separate purchase of the # DEC-ADAPT kit.
