Default TC2/C2 and JR Rx Incompatability?

Alright, I'm going nuts here ... I have 5 JR Receivers, none of them will work with my Novak TC2 or C2 ESC's. However, when I hook up the speed controls to my Tekin, Hitek, or XXTRA receiver they work just fine. Is there some sort of incompatibility that I don't know about? There's no other way to explain this

I used to use a TC2 and two different JR receivers all the time. No problems.

Check the wiring on the "stock" JR receiver...It may be wired "backwards"

Exactly...Before Airtronics released its "Z" connectors, they had a different plug wiring than Futaba...So if you used an airtonics receiver/radio, you needed to reverse a couple of the wires (don't remember which) to match the receiver...

So with that said...I'm not sure if JR uses the "universal" plug wiring that novak and futaba uses....I'd look at your manual and see if they tell you where the positive, negative and signal wires need to be plugged in...

On the novak unit...the red is postive, black is negative and white is the signal...I think JR uses different colors, but you should get the idea...

Sorry for the cryptic response...
