    I am one of the cheap guys Greatscott mentioned and I like the FlySky GT5. It is a little less bulky than the DX5R and gives me all the features I need. I bought the first one to replace the huge 16...

    My guess (really just a guess) is that Traxxas uses a multi-position switch in the TQi that simulates 2 separate switches to control 2 outputs from the receiver. That's why I simply decided to use...

    I use that for my hi/low speed servo. Center position of switch now puts the transmission into neutral. Since the switch acts on the same channel I could only use it for either front or rear locker...

    For my simple driving needs the DX5 would be even more of an overkill than the GT5 already is. The DX5 has even more features that I wouldn't use but had to pay for.
    I never held a DX5 in my (small)...

    I have not noticed any problems and I actually am using three GT5 controllers. The first one went into my wife's HG Humvee to replace the 16 channel monster that came with it. I liked it so much that...

    I put a Flysky GT5 into my Defender and am very happy with the upgrade. Cheap transmitter but capable enough for anything I do with my truck. You will loose your cruise control, but I believe that...

    It's just like any other hobby: you spend what your budget allows. The price of my Defender has about tripled with all the upgrades in electronics, brass, and accessories over the past 2 years. There...

    I went through my Defender and packed every gear set (portals, diffs, and transmission) with marine grease about 9 months ago. No problem so far. About 2 months ago I replaced the portals with Samix...

    Sounds like the same thing that happened to my daughter's Bronco a month ago. The steering servo went first and the ESC flashed a sequence that was not listed in the manual. After restarting the ESC...

    Sticky: No Trail - No Problem

    Even without a crawler course nearby I have fun several days a week just crawling around my yard with my TRX-4 Defender. I only live on a 50' x 100' city lot but I find enough challenges to keep my...

    I switched to crawling after a time of using a rc tank. My one and only rig is the TRX-4 Defender and I never regretted spending the money. For simple trailing I use high gear and all diffs open...

    The power is tapped directly of the battery connector (visible in the background of the photo) and supplies the winch controller, ESS sound module and 4 LEDs in the front bumper. I already changed...
  14. Steering Servo interfering with winch controller?

    The RC4WD Warn winch (RC4ZS1571) in my TRX4 Defender will intermittently start by itself and the first time actually pulled the cable so tight that it broke the hook. I replaced it with a beefier...

    I actually made a cargo box out of styrene to fit over the center section of the rack. A magnet is glued inside the box and a second one to the bottom of the roof rack. That keeps the box in position...

    Sorry for the confusion; I saw the photos in the thread and didn't realize that they also showed the smaller winch.

    Maybe you should still consider getting the small winch and an available bumper...

    I installed this heavy one on my Defender. It's a little pricey but works perfectly with the Warn winch and also gives it some protection. A side benefit is that you add some extra weight to the...
