i searched the motor controllers forum and didnt find t rex jr in any subject line so here goes: i am totally new to robotics, ive been into rc’s for quite a few years, but decided i would like to try robotics. i purchased a tamiya track kit and dual motor transmission, and t rex jr motor controller… i want to set up the electronics before i build anything else, but being the newbie i am, cant figure out where to hook everything up… im good on hooking the motor leads up, and im fairly certain the battery main power goes to the 2 contacts between the motor contacts, but i am unsure… btw- im running this all off of a hitec 3cfm radio, mixed function, and the bec jumper in place, soldered a female-female jumper together (for the bec), where does this hook up on the t rex jr? looking at the back of the controller,on the right side theres some abbreviations that i dont know what they mean such as: G, SO, and SI. i know what rx and tx means, but the others im totally unsure of…also, there is a jumper on the G, and SO terminals, what is this for? next question: im running a pistol grip controller, and in mixed function will allow me to independantly control each motor via the “steering wheel”, correct? do my channel jumpers go from the rx servo outputs to ch1-ch3? sorry for all of the newbie questions, but i dont wanna get stupid and fry this thing… thanks for your help!!
btw- do you guys have a switch that would be ideal to hook up to the ch4/flip leads? my tank will have full tracks.
