    I agree with stehnak, something must be wrong with the installation. I am also using Windows 10 and it installed just fine. Now I have an icon on my desktop and when I click it I get a warning that a...

    Connecting them in parallel is no problem using a Y cable, but you wouldn't be able to set endpoints individually. I have the ROC Hobby Jeep and it has a small servo turning the steering wheel. The...

    I ran into the frustrating problem trying to set endpoints also and switched to the GT5. The 3 position switch (ch. 4) is used for my hi/low speed selection, the knobs (ch. 5 and 6) control the diff...

    I believe your wiring is incorrect. The large white Molex (Tamiya) connector is your power input lead. The small red or white JST connectors are the outputs to the winch depending on the brand of...

    It looks like you get a set of 4 tires and foams. The photo shows 4 and they also put the (4) into the description.

    I have used the Power HD 23kg waterproof for over a year now without a problem. I do mostly rough trail crawling, but the truck was out almost daily last winter in snow, slush and mud. The servo is...

    I use scale bungee cords. You can buy them in different sizes pre-made or get a kit to cut your own and add the metal hooks. I also have a custom made cargo box on top of my Defender. It has a magnet...

    I am using the Power HD in my Defender also. The leads are shorter than the Traxxas servo leads, you will need to add a 4" or 6" servo extension cable. Or you can cut the cable from the Traxxas servo...

    I agree with Chris5100: change to the Flysky FS-GT5. It is the best value for the money and has more functions than you need with a crawler. When my Traxxas transmitter started to have a sticky...

    I changed to a Hobbywing 1080 ESC and no longer have the JST plug you mention. When I changed the ESC I soldered 2 wires and a JST plug to the ESC connector that goes to the battery.
    If you use the...

    My favorite way to get power for additional devices is directly of the battery (the pass through JST option). Just remember to always unplug your battery after you are done running, the fans will...

    I have never noticed any change in brightness when starting the sound or using the winch. The Traxxas power module regulates the light circuit down to 3 volts and even a 2s lipo should always at...

    I immediately covered the vent holes with electrical tape when I got my Defender 2 years ago and was always happy with the performance on the trail, mud, water, and light rock crawling. After a year...

    No, I have a "tree" of Y plugs in my Defender: from the battery to the Traxxas light module, to a separate 4 LED bumper light circuit, to my winch, to my ESS Dual sound module. Sound and lights are...

    Is your plug correctly inserted into the receiver? I believe it is possible to plug it in either way. The single lead should line up with the signal wire of all the other plugs.

    I am also using the ESS One Dual in my Defender but with a 6 channel Flysky transmitter. All I had to do is plug the single wire from the ESS into a free channel of the receiver. You also need to...

    The easiest way is to solder a couple wires with a JST connector to the battery connector from the ESC. I bought several JST Y cables and keep adding accessories to the "tree": Traxxas light power...

    The ESS should have a Y-cable in the box to connect the ESC and ESS into channel 2. I used a servo extension cable long enough to reach the ESS in the rear of the truck. The cable from the ESS is...

    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...
