I'm using the @.4 GHz 3PM for a XXX-4, as well as a few on-roaders. Probably not much help for the T4, but I currently have the throttle set at -45% and seems like a sweet spot on our dusty track. I'm running a 10x2 motor and GTB with it. Still need to adjust the steering exponential. Increased it to 10% so far.

If you plan on running analogue and digital servos with it, just make sure that you set HRS or PPM in the model memory before you turn the car on. Analogue servos act really funny if you forget! Not dangerous though.

If you change from a model memory using HRS to one with PPM (or vice versa), you will need to turn the transmitter off, then back on for the change to take effect.

My 3PM has been great so far. Probably the greatest model memory (10) for the price.

Why FUTABA dont wrote in manual: ON ROAD RC ONLY
I use mine in my T4 and my LST2. It works flawlessly for both. If it will work in onroad, there is no reason it won't work in offroad.

Hy. I use a new pack 6V 1200mha ( venom ), charging ( at 1A) between hits and the problem still the same, red led blink and turn greens few minutes after, bye race.
This rdio is not able to OFF ROAD. Use it in ON ROAD EP only.

Hmmm, works fine for me in offroad. Bumps, jumps and all. You probably have an electronic problem(binding issue).

What are you running for steering speed and steering exp? I will be using the 3PM in a T4.

What has been your experience so far with the radio?

C

servo speed cannot be increased only decreased cause the servo decides how fast its maximum is. The settings should be what feels best for you. there is no real right or wrong within reasonable limits.

It can relative to the turn angle, is 10dg on the wheel = 20 on the servo.

My pack is new from Venom ( 6V 1200mha) , recharging between the hits. The problem is: after 10 min. reed light blink, after few minutes turns green but the race is gone. My last attempt is use analog servos, Im using digital on throttle and analog on steering.
Thanks.

I would rebind. If you have already tried that it is probably time to send the receiver to Futaba to be fixed. I have seen this problem on a few of the 3pk FASST receivers.
