  1. This is kind of a long shot, but I just received an old Futaba FP-T2NBR transmitter from ebay, but the return springs and lever arms have been removed from both gimbals - the parts that cause them to return to center. It was used in a boat model and apparently the owner wanted to be able to set the throttle and forget it. Otherwise, the unit is in fantastic condition and I'd like to see it restored. Has anyone got an old, non-working 2NBR that they could sacrifice the gimbals from? Thanks!
  2. Hi all, So I have 4 unbuilt kits in the loft and an old school Monster beetle with a Acoms ( crystal) transmitter from 1985. What I want to do is to be able to control the new 4 unbuilt kits through 1 transmitter. I assume things are digital these days rather than analog. I need your recommendations as to how to do this and what is the best kit to buy. I’ve heard that this can be done.. just don’t know where to start. I can’t use the wheel style transmitters, so am only after the 2stick type transmitter. Based in the UK and getting back into RC’ing after a 38 yr hiatus!! My unbuilt kits are Wild One ( blockhead), 2011Avante, re re Hotshot and rere Sand Scorcher. I’ve also got the front body pillar that I can swap out and put the racing buggy body onto that chassis too.
  3. Hello everyone. Just wondering if anyone can help me. I have got My son into tamiya and we now have a few buggies really we want to upgrade the electrics so we only have the 1 transmitter for all. I've read up on it as much as I can and was thinking of the Futaba T4PM With R304SB Receiver. I would rather pay once and get a decent system rather than scrimp and keep shelling out for replacements. I'll only be using tamiya kit esc and brushed kit motors for now with nimh packs. What confuses me is the steering servos. Will any servo fit the futaba receiver? Or do I have to buy futaba brand ones. They are ridiculous prices and that's what's stopping me taking the plunge. Any help welcome. Its all changed a lot since my vanquish back in the day!!!!!!!
  4. New, In box...never used Ordered for Grandson, did not need. FS in US! $100.00
  5. So I've been running my old Futaba 70mhz transmitter and receiver with a new Tble-02 ESC. I've been getting tons of interference with the transmitter and receiver so the car will speed off at times. Either there is inference between the ESC and transmitter or there is just too much noise out there in the neighborhood with all the other frequencies bouncing around out there Probably time to upgrade to. 2.4GhZ transmitter and receiver. So for my education would you all give some suggestions for a good set up for a new 2.4ghz radio? I'm sorta partial to Futaba but only because that's what I've always had. I'm open to new manufactures. I plan on build another Hornet and probably a Sand Scorcher or Super Champ so they will be getting new 2.4ghz radios for sure. So whatever suggestions you all have that would be helpful thanks! One other concern, I have several original Futaba servos that are in perfect working condition that I could reuse in my new builds. The issues however is that they are so old they have the original 3 pin male connector at the end. I see that all new receivers, ESCs, and servos now have the 3 pin connection reversed. The receiver is now the male and all that connect to it have the female end. Would someone suggest an adapter? Or just purchase new servos? I did find an adapter that allowed me to us the new Tble-02 ESC with the old Futaba receiver but I don't think that connector will fit into a new receiver? Or will it? Pictures attached.
  6. Hi, I am in the UK and I have an old Futaba 4EX 4 channel Transmitter I am running my Tamiya Ford F350 Hi Lift with. The problem I have is it came with an old 1000mah 8 in a row AA NiCad battery pack with a JR/HiTech connector (I think), which now is only lasting 30 minutes or so. I have seen suitable larger mah packs for sale but wondered if I can I use a lipo pack without any modification to the transmitter. Obviously I would have to consider the size of the pack. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks
  7. Hi, I have these two used transmitters only for sale. One is a Acoms AP-227 Mrk. II and the other is a Techniplus transmitter.

  9. So, I had my Vintage 84 Hornet out for its first trial run today. So much fun! However, I came across a problem which I'm not sure where the issues originates. During the rebuild I replaced the original MSC with a new TBLE-02S ESC. I kept my original Futaba transmitter and receiver. They work at a frequency of 70 MHz. During the run the throttle would surge at times causing the car to run away. Never fun! This is why I got rid of the MSC. It always stuck with low batteries and would take off to its potential death. The ESC is for sure set up correctly with both forward and reverse limits. And the radio seems to be in good shape. Do you think the throttle stick is a malfunction of the ESC or is it because I'm using such an old transmitter and receiver running at such a low frequency and the new ESC demands a 2.4 ghz? any insight my fellow Tamiya enthusiast?
  10. So I'm going to start building my Baja Champ slowly over the next few weeks. Not much time, but I haven't built anything for a few years and this kit seems like a nice start. I've been collecting some radios over the last couple of years to have period correct gear for my cars. But I don't have anything from the 1998+2-4 years period. I'd like to get something that would have been put in a Tamiya buggy in that time frame. I'm guessing perhaps a Futaba,, but it's very hard to find a timeline of Futaba sets. What are your top tips? Preferably something I can get NIB for a decent price ;-)
  11. Hello everybody, I am giving away an old acoms 2 channel FM pistol transmitter. It comes with a 27mhz crystal and a plastic geared servo. The Transmitter has throttle and steering trims, reverse switches, steering dual rate, uses 8 AA batteries and is missing the antenna. It still works fine. You can get a screw-on antenna for a few €. The controller comes with an acoms plastic gear servo. Unfortunately I do not have a receiver anymore. I am willing to give those away as long as the "buyer" takes care of the shipping costs which should be 5-7€ max.
  12. Hi, I received a brand new Tamiya FineSpec FM trasmitter with TRU-05 receiver yesterday. This has been pulled from a TT-01 Type-E XB set. Transmitter and receiver look perfectly fine and new, with no marks. The tape was even still on the battery door of the transmitter. However, I cannot get these to work. I've hooked up the receiver with a battery pack with 4 fresh batteries and put 8 fresh batteries in the transmitter. I use Panasonic Eneloop rechargables, and have verified that they're all fully charged. They're brand new and I just charged them. They work perfectly fine in an AM set I also received yesterday. I've tried connecting one or two servos of various brands to the receiver. I know that everything is connected correctly, because I've used Futaba-type connectors with the little guide tabs still on them to verify orientation. The battery pack has the tab. When I turn the system on (transmitter first) I only get interference type twitching from the servos. I have no control at all when I use the transmitter. However, if I wave the transmitter a bit, I get more interference. Both transmitter and receiver use the red channel 2 (27.045 MHz) crystals that came with the set. I've tried reseating both to ensure a good connection and antennas are fully extended of course. I've never had a FM radio system before. I'm leaning towards calling this a dud and returning it to the seller, but before I do I'd like to know if there are some more things I should try with an FM system before giving up on it.
  13. Hi, I have several old FM and AM radios from various manufacturers. It can be a bit confusing to find the right combo of crystals for these. Does anybody know of a good source for buying several crystal sets at once cheaply? They need to be good quality and work across brands.
  14. I just got a Futaba 4YWD 2.4GHz FHSS transmitter that I'm planning to use for a couple of 3-speeds, a tractor trailer and a CC-01. I've been trying to find more receivers for this, both 2- and 4-channel ones. Does anybody know what receivers will work? Will it bind with more than one receiver? It has no model memory, but I'm hoping each receiver will just bind with the radio.
  15. Hi club members,I have just bought a non running QD Blackfoot which I've now got up and running (by changing the on/off switch.However the controls are reversed ie the throttle operates the steering and the steering works the forward and reverse.Any ideas why this could be?,are QD vehicles made any differently to the kits?I've tried a few controllers and different crystals.Any insight would be much appreciated.I bought this to introduce my young son to Tamiya until he's old enough for a self build.He could use it as is but I'd prefer it if I could get it going as per normal operation.Thanks in advance,gary

  17. So I've decided to finally move to a rechargeable battery pack for my Tx and am dumping the single cells, I have a few questions, any insight? 1. My Tx has an accurate battery voltage display and a low battery warning but these can't be configured or set. I assume the low battery warning will not be calibrated for LiPo and I should not depend on that - good assumption? 2. Assuming I can't rely on the warning, I can leave the Tx display on charge level when I'm running (I don't need to view the other screens whilst running) but what level is "low" for a 11.1v 3s? 3. Even though the packs are cheap I'd prefer an alarm - can I fit an inline LV alarm/cutoff between the Tx and battery pack? The Rx has steering and throttle fail safes so if the Tx cuts the vehicle will roll to a stop in a straight line. 4. What would happen if somebody plugged a charger into the charging port on my Tx if the LiPo pack was plugged in? Should I snip the wires as a precaution? 5. Am I being paranoid... 6. I see 1450mah all the way up to 3600mah... really I'll probably charge the Tx pack each time I charge my race packs, how long could I expect a fully charged 1450mah pack to last (my Tx manual only calls for a 700mah pack)? 7. Should I be asking any other dumb or intelligent questions? Tks.
  18. I have a loose transmitter stick (sounds like a horrible disease I know!) I think it's the spring, it was on the steering side which was really annoying because all my cars were wandering, at first I thought it was the servo. I have swapped the transmitter sticks now so it happens on the throttle side, which is a lot less frustrating, but I would like to replace the springs and put the sticks back to where they should be, as the 50/50 70/30 switch is now on the steering. Anyone know anywhere to buy these springs?
