Default Can't get electronics to work/connect on 2015 Tamiya Monster Beetle Build

Hey all,

Need some help. I have the, I believe, 2015 Monster Beetle kit. 2 of them in fact. 1 is complete and the other is to the point where I just installed the electronics.

I can't get anything to work or sync and after researching if things are compatible I am still at a loss. I have also followed the procedures for binding (i.e. holding bind button down on TX before powering on, etc) and still nothing.

Speed controller: Tamiya ESC 02s

Receiver: Futaba R2004GF (says FHSS)

Servo: Futaba S3003

Transmitter: Tried it with Spektrum DX2E, Spektrum DX2L and Kyosho KT-331P

I have the brushed motor installed on one and the other has no motor yet.

Servo is in receiver slot 1, ESC is in receiver slot 2.

When powered on, the ESC blinks green and the Receiver is solid red. For the one with the motor the ESC is also beeping. When I press the lync button on the receiver it flashes red.

Can someone help me? Is my problem the TX? I ordered a Futaba TX/RX to see if that helps but it won't be here for a while.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Oh man, you have GOT to do some reading. These 2.4GHz radio systems are brand specific. You're trying to get a Futaba rx to link with transmitters that are NOT Futaba.

It won't work.

The radios forum over on RC Groups would be an excellent start.

Much appreciated. I figured out why I was so confused and didn't remember the TX/RX had to match. I knew in the past this RX worked but could only had my spektrum and kyosho TX's. I just found my Futaba TX in the basement which makes a lot more sense now..
