Default Quick electronics question........

I got a TC3 from a freind to use as my second car........It has some older electronics in it, but it all works fine. There is a Novak 410 HPC, a Novak NER-2S receiver (AM 75), and a stock futaba servo. My question is this....why do I have to use all the reverse settings on my controller (futaba mag. junior) to make all this stuff work properly? Is this normal? Its pretty hard to screw up hooking everything up......I just wanna make sure its right. Thanks for the help.......

That is normal and not uncommon. Different companies use different standards on the signal format for the transmitter. So if you were to have a Futaba receiver you may not need to set the transmitter to reverse.

Well as far as servos go, the radio company doesnt know which way you will have your servo mounted and they are mounted differently in every car. Put the servo on the other side and you will need to reverse it.

Most new ESC's use quick tune setup and dont care if its in normal or reverse.

It doesnt really matter, the radio companies put this feature on radios so they would be compatable with everything without having to open up the servo and reverse the wires to the motor.
