Modded or modded & programmed?

Modded is on LosiKid's website, click the OverkillRC link in my sig.

Programmed.....refer to the "Hacked GT3B support thread".

I'm sure charlie meant

Modded= I(OverkillRC) preform numerous mods, including flashing them with a new firmware

programming= Actually setting up the models, which i only help the customer with, i won't pre-setup (program) models when i mod the radio.

The programming kit is to flash a new firmware to the radio...thats all.

All the settings to setup a new model is done through the lcd and buttons on the radio

Yes, the $50 radio is all you need, it comes with a 3ch rx which wil handle 1 esc, front steering servo, and a rear steering servo....I do recommend to consider the other mods, like the VR.

Yes, i will help with setting up the models if you can't figure it out

Yes, I should have clarified modded = hacked GT3B/C.
My bad.

Yes, LosiKid/OverkillRC is one in the same.....

There are quite a few people that can help with programming a hacked GT3B/C once you get it.

We can also likely help with a stock GT3B/C, but you're a bit more limited at first.

PS, LosiKid, I got your PM, I will check it out in a bit. Thanks for the request!

hey there, regarding the STM8S card, are all of them the same? I bought a hacked 3b, came with a card but doesnt look the same as the STM8S card that are on your site.

Should I take a pic to help? Thought I'll ask first?

Sometimes the STM8S cards are snapped in half while other times the solder is just broken. I opted to just break the solder on mine but others break the board at the solder joint.

some good reads on it over at RCTech.

a pic would help.

Breaking the board is a 100% useless and makes life harder...this is an old solution that i 100% recommend against

Now press back afew times

Scroll to REV, LONG enter
scroll to 3, enter
scroll to MPO, press enter
scroll to NOL, LONG enter
press back afew times

Now the CH3 trim switch should change your positions, make sure to set CH3 endpoints
Used that setup to put a dig unit on my wraith 6 months back. Now used the same to put the dig on my ridgecrest and having an issue. Only difference is i used a spare 3 channel receiver instead of the 6 channel i have on my wraith. Position 1 is fine, position 2 the steering goes jittery and i loose everything else, position 3 the steering cranks left and sits there?? Went through the setup twice and its the same as my wraith?

I don't know if this will be of any help, but check your end points on the channels. I think I read that if the end points are set really high, one channel can sometimes interfere with another.
Does anyone else have any experience with that?
