Default Anyone have or used a Novak GTB/Velociti Brushless?

Would like to know who here used this setup on their electric offroad r/cs. Would like to get some pointers on the one-touch programming and why my r/c don't fully brake and won't get into reverse.

Hope there's someone out there that has or had this setup.

this a first brushless system? the gtb doesnt have reverse but i am pretty sure it has a practice mode in the programing, just read your manual. brushless is a ton smoother, have you owned a system that had better breaking than before?

The GTB does have reverse, but you have to change profiles to get it.
Do you have a manual?
It describes the one touch set up better than I can.

I followed the manual. The problem I am having is the first couple steps.


-Transmitter is on
-Hold the one-touch button and then switch the flip to on and the RED led does not come on. The amber stays active. Why can't I activate the one-touch process?



(Just messed with it and there are times when the car will go reverse. I'll keep tapping forward then all of a sudden reverse will activate. Then I go forward and try reverse again and nada)

The gtb has novaks "smart braking" which doesn't allow instant reverse. You have to leave the throttle at neutral when the car is not moving for a certain amount of time before you can pump it forward for reverse.
