Ahh now we're making sense. So you can only put it on a push button correct? Any chance of you pulling the radio apart and seeing if has 3 wires

Thanks for answering all my questions, futaba must pay you well!

If we are not worried about having cutting brakes. Is there a way to run the dual esc's and have control over the dig like normal?

No, there is only one program mix rather than 2 like the 4PK.

Wow, that seems very easy to program for dual esc's. I don't think it would be that hard to get used to the dig button.

The programming is basically set from the factory, the only thing I didn't show was programming the buttons. I will do that in a detailed video, I just wanted to try and answer questions for you guys.

With the 3pos rockers on the grip I have I hopes they can make this radio very sweet!

Thanks again

Thanks for the overview Josh! I sure hope Futaba takes your suggestions for the DT switches. I would like to use DT4 for dig, like the spektrum DX3 I am currently using. Hold one way for front dig, center 4wd, hold other way for rear dig, with the option to change bias using another DT.

Thanks for the videos and your honest opinions, Harley. I hope the reprogramming gets worked out sometime soon. I'm really looking forward to getting this.
