Default Fixing the odd HL 2,4 Ghz TX

The new 2,4 Ghz heng long Tx is really odd. I'm around RC since 1978 and never have seen a Tx without trims, you can't do nothing whit no trims.
My two Leopards are awaiting in the garage for a better future, in the meantime I have play a little with them to test the 2,4 Ghz set. Both of them turn to the right, a little but enough to make me nervous.

Besides I like the Tamiya configuration as I have used it since 30 years now, steering in the right and throttle in the left.

I took one of my unused 27Mhz Tx and just changed the stick sets. Quite simple as the connectors are the same. I made an extra work permuting the potentiometer/switch to the my configuration.

Now I have the 2,4 Ghz Tx with trims and works pretty good. The springs are soft and better to hand them.

What about proportional steering? I thought all the new HL 2.4ghz didn't have proportional steering which makes driving a nightmare... do the Leopards have proportional?

I toss mine and go back to the RX 18. I hope HL doesn't stop producing these. I am running long can Promax with my leopard 2. With a regular set of gears, the RX18 with the lid off is barely getting warm. There is more heat coming off the Promax motors then there is off the RX18.

Of course I also have this paired with the DBC3 and Benedini to give me control from a Spektrum radio.

As far as I am concerned the HL 2.4 Ghz stuff is a step backward.

Stratos50, again the 2,4 is odd. If you go ahead doesn't have proportional steering, however if you go for spin first and then go ahead, WOW the proportional steering is there. Obviously a mistake in the software.

I agree the RX18 was far better just HL needed to make a 2,4Ghz Rx, nothing more.
