Default Jetronics Brake Valve Setup

Hello Guys,

I am helping my friend set up the Jetronics brake valve:
http://www.jet-tronics.de/Jet-Tronic...ve%20de-en.pdf

And I have a problem setting it up.
I would like to use it on a simple switch as on/off brake only, but I did try a slider also (according to the instructions) on his Futaba 18SZ.
Even if I do the setup exactly like in the manual, learn both limit points, at this point, even before the 3 second red led press, the wheels are locked and braked.
And if I hold the red button 3 seconds, I donít see anything happening.
the wheels are fully braked in both points, and when I flick the switch on Tx the red/green light light up accordingly for 1 second, then come off. But in both conditions, wheels are always braked!

How can I set it up to completely release brake on one side of the switch?
Is there an instructional video maybe?
I figured some pilots here might be using these.
thanks.

Make sure your airlines aren't switched up. Had the same problem a couple weeks ago - I had the airlines swapped.

I can't get your link to open, but if your valve is like this:

It worked flawlessly for me. I recently had to convert back to an on board air brake system for brakes, so I recently had to set it up.

Good Luck!

I am having this exact problem with the JT brake valve tonight. Did you figure it out?
Thanks

Yes, he had the input and output lines connected together by mistake.
the valve was fine.
