Yea no go. And servo works too on channel 4. On channel 3 nothing happens although I can feel a light vibration on the servo, like something is trying to happen

Check your endpoints?

Sub trim zeroes out?

Between those two settings, you should get some movement unless there is internal wiring issues.

Does anybody know if there is a way to get Channel 4, which is the 3-position switch- to act like a 2-position switch. And, at the same time, can you set Channel 3 to act like a 3-position push-button?

Has anyone compared the GT5 to the Radiolink RC6GS? I was set on buying the GT5 (even though I'm not a fan of the looks) but ended up just buying the RC6GS to replace my old Airtronics MX3-FG. Mainly liked the looks of the RC6GS, plus the fact that the receivers are 1/2 the price of the GT5 and I have a few receivers I want to buy.

I had the RC4GS which is the predecessor to the RC6GS. My only problem with it was that it's not durable. I fell with it in my hand and ever since the trigger won't center. I've dropped other radios and those survived. The external antenna is also very prone to snapping. I never did that, but many others have. On top of that the RC6GS has the external toggle switches that were tacked on to turn a 4 channel radio into a 6 channel radio. Watch out for those as well. If you treat it well it should be fine. Just don't drop it.

Uh oh, I do go hiking and also stick the tx in my backpack when I transport my crawler around. Hopefully it will treat me OK.

I know it was dumb to base my decision partly on the looks of the tx but the Flysky just looks so odd to me.

Thanks for the feedback!

Review here. Personally I think the RC6GS looks ugly and cheap compared to the FS-GT5 but to each their own

Just received this radio. Not too shabby for $70! Just playing around with it I like it! Plan to put my SCX10 0G Rubicon (RTR) and my in process Capra on this radio. Question, would this bind with the RTR's AR-3 receiver? I ask because I don't know who makes the AR-3 and it's buried in the truck to take it out to test (it's in a sealed box). Saves me $20 if I don't have to get another Rx for the Jeep.

I have had the GT5 for about 6 months now. It's travelled with me on road trips, it's been in light rain, and it's still working well. It's linked to my TRX4 Sport and 2x Tamiya TT02.

The GT5 + FS-BS6 have performed perfectly with my vehicles.

Most recently, I installed a H.O.G hand of god servo winch and an LED light bar. The LED light bar is controlled by an Apex RC Products RC Remote Electronic AUX Channel On/Off Switch #9025 on CHANNEL 3 and I can switch the lights on/off remotely by clicking the ch3 button on the GT5. The servo winch works off my CHANNEL 5 Variable speed knob with a Precision RC Works "Cheapy" 3rd Channel Winch Controller (100%= retract, 50% stop, 0% extend). I can also put it on the 3 position switch on the GT5 (channel 4), (or the cheapy winch controller can be programmed to work off a 2-position switch as well). What's cool about the PRCW Cheapy winch controller is it doesn't require a JST to run external battery. It powers the servo winch straight from the 1x servo connector on the receiver (make sure you have a good BEC).

My steering servo, a Hitec D956 runs off a HeyOK Performance No Brainer ESC @ 7.0v which also works well with the FlySky system.
