Default (Newby Question) about my radio controller

I recently purchased a Volcano and on my controller it has a digital proportional radio control system. What does all of these switches and knobs do? Thanks in advance for anyones help.

The 2 round knobs are to set the trim. 1 for steering and 1 for throttle. 2 switches are used if you want to reverse the contols.

there is nothing in the book that explains what the knobs and swtches do. Yoy have to open a cover to get to these knobs and switches.

Bascically they limit servos. like if you want it to turn less ar throttle less. I think I haven't messed with them, no need to yet.

Universal as in like an aftermarket gear?

If that is what you mean, you might want to hit up Robinson Racing, they make gears for all sorts of makes of RCs. They may not have anything yet for Redcat, but you never know. If you look, they just might have a gear just for your RC.

If the HPI spur fits, just teh Robinson Racing for sure has a spur taht will fit, Robinson Racing makes spurs for just about all HPI cars and trucks.
