TROUBLE SHOOTING
SEE INSTRUCTION SHEET BELOW

For Live Steam locos with more than two servos, we recommend any of the Tx handpieces listed below.
Bind as many locos as you wish to one TX hand piece.

LIVE STEAM. All Tx handpieces feature a large knob for one hand thumb control
of the steam regulator and a knob for setting the direction Reverser. Adjustable cut off.
LOW OFF BATTERY R/C. The same two knobs are used for Low OFF ESC's.
CENTRE OFF BATTERY R/C.  The channel # 1 big knob provides speed and direction control.

ALL TX'S HAVE A 1/2 SERVO OR SOUND TRIGGER FUNCTION ON THE  CH # 5 RED BIND BUTTON.

If your current live steam locos are equipped with Spektrum, Lemon  or Orange DSM2 compatible R/C
and the servo reversing switch is set to normal, you can simply replace the big stick TX's
with our # DU-Tx1, # DU-Tx3, DU-Tx5 & # DU-Tx7 pocket sized alternatives.
If more, or different, user functionality is desired scroll down to the "PLUS" items.
Non DSM2-DSMX compatible locos will also require a new RX.
However, you can still use the old servos and battery harness etc.

No servo reversing.  Use the # AB-Rx-v2 Auto Bind Rx's or # SIG-REV or # MRW-11.
RCS TX's are marked CE and are FCC compliant, but not tested or approved.
All Tx handpieces require a regular PP3 9 volt battery.  Battery life = 20 hours plus.

# DU-TX1 has 2 x Digital Proportional servo controls.
Plus 1 x snap action servo channel.

# DU-TX3 has 2 x Digital Proportional servo controls.
Plus 3 x snap action servo channels or sound triggers.

ALL TX's can also be used with 6 - 24 volt 100 Watt "LOW OFF" ESC's for battery R/C.
