Hi ,I have a problem with using this piece of kit. motor 540 battery over/l 2000mah 7.2 v. TX ace r/c commander 3ch 27am. it has up/down left/right stick and a slider on the side.
Now the problem(sorry its longwinded) I have set everything up correct as per viper set up. Move the stick up down, motor works. move the stick left right servo operates BUT the motor runs fwd/rev as well. use the slider and the motor operates. why is this happening please? am i missing a trick yer?
should i use a seperate rcv pack and disconnect the s/c red wire as per viper instructions and connect to the up/down channel?
help appreciated many thanks keith

Have you tried the throttle on the third function operated by the slider on the side ??
Maybe the poor old radio has gone into semi retirement ?
Or have you tried the set up on a different radio set ?
Regards Ray ( and yes I do have 27mhz radios that work even after all these years. )

Zero experience with Ace Commander gear, but the last time I saw this the transmitter had a well hidden little switch marked "mix" which he had managed to slide. That was on a Joysway lunchbox transmitter.
The side slider usually just operates to swing the position of the pot a bit one way or the other to mover the center position. Sliding that will move the deadband, Moving it far enough will cause the ESC to tell the motor to start turning.
