    Need help with spektrum

    I just upgraded my tq3 radio with a spektrum dx3 (older model). It doesn't seem to have as much servo travel as the stock radio, any ideas? I checked the settings, set to 125%, still doesn't seem to have as much. I am still using the stock servos, and I am out of ideas. Is this normal for a spektrum system, or am I overlooking something? Thanks for your help .

    RE: Need help with spektrum

    Well, all except for the braking is good. On the TQ3, there is a 50/50 or 70/30 setting for throttle/brake. Seems like the Spektrum is 70/30 setting only. Is this changeable? On the TQ3, it is a setting that changes the position of the throttle lever on the controller. I need to have stronger braking lol. Other than that, I am happy with the spektrum.

    Last question, does the antennae have to be fully extended on the rx, or is it okay to spiral it back down the antennae tube like on a standard am rx?

    If you are not getting enough travel through travel adjust you may need to go out further on the servo arm. The antenna must remain straight and not be coiled or kinked.
