I need help... I have a Hacked GT3C and I'm lost... I was gonna use this in my crawler but decided to put in in my ERBE.. It has a mamba monster. Anyway Its all hooked up but If I can remember I have the radio set to a dual esc mode and I forget how to set up a single esc mode. I'm so confused, the esc will turn on and beep 4 times(4s lipo) then stay silent, no finish beeps. IDK please help me.

I think its under the "long rev hold" menu. If not you can just use a new model or start over by:

Reset the model. (Directions in firmware manual)

Bind Rx to Tx.

Re-set end points if necessary.

You'll definitely want to keep the different trucks on different programs. That's the whole point of the radio is to allow you to have totally different programs for it. I have 4 cars programmed on my B and each name is set as well.

So, make a new program and rename to ERBE and then reverse channel 2. Once you do that, recalibrate the ESC to radio and then you can start messing around.

Hello I have a problem to hack my GT3C.
I can not make the connection between STVP and radio.
I STM8S red LED that lights up and the message "Error checking device! Check the configuration or the device".
I check my soldering and everything is good.

I'm stoked. Just placed an order for mine. Can't wait to get it.

I have been searching and searching and couldn't find anything in a pistol grip for my price range that came even close to what this thing is capable of. Can't wait to get it.

Are you getting a hacked GT3B or GT3C?

Either way, I think you're going to love it.

Did you try flipping the programming connector over?
Are the TX batteries good?

@madbarth- was having the same issues solved it by doing a reboot on the computer after installing the toolset and also breaking board which meant batteries needed in the TX. FYI windows 7 pro 64bit hope this helps- sometimes its the simple stuff

I ordered the GT3B, it just fit my budget better currently. Once I get it dialed in, i'll probably order another for my sons berg too.

Hey guys, I've got my radio and I'm trying to figure out how to program channel 4 and 5 for 3 pos switches..

And before y'all attack me i've read through countless pages of this thread and so far all I'm seeing is esc mixing and dual steer mixing.

Thanks

GT3B or GT3C?
What firmware are you running (if it's a hacked GT3C, it's the newest firmware.)

Here is the "How To" video on setting up one of your 3-position switches on one of your spare channels.

Also, here is a link to the manual for firmware v0.6.1 (you can right click on the link and choose "save link as")
