This rotary switch / push button combination must be connected at a spare proportional channel of your transmitter. For mechanical installation already present extension places of your TX can be used usually. (Only two holes are necessary - rotary switch and push button)
The desired sound is selected by one of the 12 rotary switch position and triggered by the push button.
This allows a convenient, quick and direct sound selection.
In principal the encoder is a simple potentio-meter with 12 fix positions.
The Product: TTX650 can accept an encoder, installed by FOA employees. Inquire for price
B: Direct control by a spare proportional channel of your radio
A common proportional channel, equipped with a 3-position switch at your TX can be used to control the soundunit.
This switch should have a neutral position and momentary contacts to both sides. Permanent switching is also possible, in case the switch is centered manually
Control mode “Indirect Sound Selection”
The desired sound is selected by flicking the switch x-time up (according to the desired sound number).
The selected sound is triggered by flicking the switch down.
A already selected sound can be triggered multiple times without a new selection (f.e. MG bursts).
This mode allows triggering all sounds and functions loaded at the unit.
Control mode “Direct Sound Selection”
The desired sound is simply selected by flicking the switch up (sound1) or down (sound2)
Control mode “Autostart”
This mode does not need any control channel. Fist acceleration of the motor starts the engine. If it runs 20s idel, it is shut down automatically.
This control mode does NOT offer any special sounds(f.e. horn)
For installing the sound system in your model, common RC-modelling solder skills are necessary. The offered components are parts of a sound system, created by the customer.
