    Traxxas XMaxx channel 4 use help

    I am using a 4 channel Traxxas transmitter and I would like to use the 3 way switch to control a servo. I would like to the servo to be in, well 3 different positions, left strait right. Iíve just plugged a servo into the 4 channel and I can get it to move left and right but it only seems to use 2 of the switches. One switch goes left one goes right. Looking for any suggestions. Thanks for any help you can offer.

    The TRX-4 uses the fourth channel on the tx for the diff locks - so it can be unlocked, front locked or both front & rear locked. Through programming that 4th tx channel operates 4 & 5 on the receiver as the front is on 4 and rear is on 5. Technically both are either left/right or on/off as both diffs are unlocked, front only locked or front & rear locked. Unless you are able to get into the programming of the tx/rx I don't see you being able to control a single servo in three positions when it is programmed for two.

    Thanks for the info. After some thought I might just use the other channel 1 output for my left right strait and use channel 4 to turn servo on and off. I wouldn’t be able to lock left or right but I think that will be ok as long as I can turn it on and off.
