Just a couple of questions on the 3pk here..
1) HRS has no PCM features (eg: stops car when glitching happens)?
2) Are Sanwa ZR, VR, VB etc etc servos compatible with the HRS unit?

Default Will old 3pj module work?

Hi, It is known that Hi-Tech TX module work with the 3pk. How about old 3pj TX module? (PCM & PPM) The manual said it will not work. How about real life experience?

According to the manual, HRS also have fail safe function. Don't know how it work in real life. Cause in the old days of 3pj, the fail safe doesn't work very much if there is another 3pj is running the same frequency in PCM mode. However, the battery fail safe did work.

Default 3PK Failsafe feature

Hurhur;

According to the 3PK manual, Failsafe mode is ONLY availible in HRS and PCM modes. You need a plug-in Failsafe for standard PPM/FM receivers.

DIGITAL Servos ONLY with the HRS Receiver. So far most brands of Digital servos seem to work OK with the 3PK. You can use ANY type of servo with the other Receivers.

Hi Dave, Thanks. Is the module designed for use with both 3PK and 3PJ?

For PPM and PCM, you can use whatever you want. But we never try it with HRS though. This is only half the answer.

I'll choose to use PCM/PPM instead of HRS, due to the fact that PCM/PPM is more flexible on the receiver, servo and battery used. It's hard to tell the respond speed difference on the track. So there is no problem.

BTW, 3PK manual system is a great improvement from the 3PJ, very easy to understand and use. For the 3PJ, I can never figure out where are those functions are located and how to adjust without the manual.

hi there, bong i was using a 9-cell battery pack in my old 3PJ. the advantage is higher voltage, which should increase range a bit. my car used to glitch on some parts of the makati track when i ran there before; switching to 9-cell seemed to eliminate the glitch. but im not suggesting that glitches are cured by 9-cell packs

btw, where did you get your 3PK with the transmitter pack? i couldnt find one so i got the set without the nicads. i bought 1850mah nimh AA's, which should last a while between charges, considering that the 3pk seems to be a bit easier on the batteries, even with the backlight.

Just remove the screw covers and take out the other end. Just remember for the rear cover, there is one screw inside holding the other end.

If you want to pain them, I think it is better to ask some professional paint workshop to do it as you won't be able to just paint them with tamiya TS spray paint even if you applied primer first. I already did and failled, but they are easily removed with gasoline and it came gold again. By the way, it is metalizing proses for the gold color.

I will send mine to a paint shop on 16/dec and see what they can do for me as I required no sanding on its "EDM" finish.

Hope it helps

one more thing, i noticed that the gold colored plastic parts seem to be attached by screws (except for the module cover which slides off). are they easily removeable? are there different trim colors available, just like in the 3PJ with the different colored steering wheel and grip covers?

thanks for any info

Default 3PK Perks

OK Guys;

Everyone was scaring me away from the HRS receiver, but now it looks like it works quite well with other brands of Digital servos.

So what problems, if any, has anyone had with their 3PK so far?

Thanks,
