Default TRX Bronco

I've been working on this truck for a few weeks now and its gotten better with every mod and the more I drive it the more I like it.

It has for electronics:

Castle MMP
Castle BEC
Tekin ROC 3100
Hitec 7954sh
Solar D771 servo winch
Hobbywing 1060 winch esc
Solar servo board light controllers (2)
Hacked Flysky GT3c
2200mah Turnigy 3S or 3500 Helios 3S battery

Mechanical mods:

Aluminum bumpers front and rear
Aluminum sliders
Stainless lower links with Revo ends
HSP Shocks
I reworked bearings in the transmission

The pretty stuff:

Proline Bronco 1981 body
Proline 4-Seat interior
Custom engraved grill
Ebay wheels
KLR tires and foams

I have on order the MFR brass portal covers that should be here next week I hope.

I know with this new truck it takes 5 channels to replace the radio if you want it all seperate, sure you can use the T-lock thing but why when we have 8ch radios? I have this template that so far has worked well for everyone I've sent it to for the Hacked GT3c radio.

Channel set up for TRX.

Ch1 steering
Ch2 esc
Ch3 winch (d/r)
Ch4 front locker (st)
Ch5 rear locker (th)
Ch6 2-speed (ch3 trim)
Ch7 running lights (back)
Ch8 auxiliary lights (end)

The enter wheel has a long press function, when doing this press and hold for a second or two until whatever you’ve selected is flashing.

For all of the shift servos, ch4 ch5 and ch6, I highly recommend you set all their epa to 20/20 prior to connecting to the servos in the vehicle. This way when you are testing it you can see the servos working but they shouldn't be stalling as that may burn them up fast. Once everything is working you can then set each end point to just before they begin to hum, with the springs they have, a slight hum shouldn't be an issue but that's up to you. I recommend you to disconnect the steering servo for quietness and disconnect motor for safety. On some radios you select which side of the EPA by using the throttle trigger and some by using the ST left/right buttons.

Before you start, choose your model and select NAME and long press enter, you'll see c 3, press enter and 3 will be flashing, scroll to 8 and press end twice. This sets up 8 channels available for this model.

WINCH ON D/R BUTTON:
Select REV and long press enter
scroll down to d DRS press enter
d DRS will be flashing, scroll to ch3 press enter
Screen will show d BNL
Scroll to BMO
Press end button twice and try it.

FRONT LOCKER ON ST BUTTON:
Select REV and long press enter
1 TR1 will show on the screen, press enter
Scroll to CH4 press enter
BNL will be flashing, press enter and you'll see a flashing 1v, scroll to 200v
Press end button twice and try it




REAR LOCKER ON TH BUTTON:
Select REV and long press enter
Scroll to 2 TR2 press enter
Scroll to CH5 press enter
BNL will be flashing, press enter.
You'll see a flashing 1v and scroll to 200v
Press end button twice and try it

2-SPEED TRANS ON CH3TRIM BUTTON:
Select REV and long press enter
Scroll down to 3 TR1 press enter
TR1 will be flashing, scroll to ch6 press enter
Screen will show BNL press enter
You'll see a flashing 1v and scroll to 200v
Press end button twice and try it

RUNNING LIGHTS ON BACK BUTTON:
Select REV and long press enter button
Scroll till you see B OFF, press enter, scroll to ch7
Press end button twice and try it.

AUXILIARY LIGHTS ON END BUTTON:
Select REV and long press enter button
Scroll till you see E OFF press enter, scroll to ch8
Press end button twice and try it.

Photobusket has taken their user base hostage. I've used imgur and Google drive with success.

You can also upload directly from Tapatalk on a phone. And I've recently discovered you can use Facebook for hosting as well (on a regular computer, haven't tried on a phone).

Imgur is also being highly recommended on this site to replace the great evil PhotoF*ckit. They changed their 3rd-party hosting of pics from free to $399 a year.

So - I can't see your pics, and I really would like to!

Build list sounds great, and the '81 Bronco body is uncommonly-used here on this site....


EDIT: Hah! - you posted a good one while I was responding! Awesome.....

AND - - - I can now see the previous shots. Fantastic!
