Use this product in a safe manner. Please observe the following safety precautions at all times.
- High Response System (H.R.S. system) When used with the H.R.S. system, a speed of triple that of an FM system at average response is realized. (Comparison with other Futaba products) The T3VCS transmitter is compatible with the H.R.S. system, PCM1024 system, and PPM (FM) system. - 110x64 dot large graphic LCD/with backlighting EXP curve, throttle curve, servo view, and other graph display and function selection can batch display simple menus and function setup items, and data setup is easy. Backlighting that can be turned ON/OFF also improves recognition at indoor circuits, etc. - 10 models memory/+ 10 models by using a data pack Model names can use up to 10 letters, numbers, and symbols so that easily understood names can be set. Model copy function simplifies creation of a model memory with different fine setups. An additional 10 models memory can be added by using the optional CAMPac-16K. - Two function selection modes: Menu selection and direct call Setup screens are called from a menu screen. The menu screen can be selected from among 3 levels (LV1/LV2/LV3) to match the level of use. Frequently used (high urgency) functions can be quickly called by assigning them to direct call buttons. (6 functions) - Brake mixing for large cars (BRAKE-MIX) Brake mixing of the front and rear wheels of 1/5GP cars, etc. has delay and balance adjustment functions. - Second dual rate (2ND D/R) Steering angle can be switched with one touch while running. - Anti-skid Braking System (A.B.S.) This function applies the brakes so that the tires of gasoline engine cars, etc. do not lose their grip on the road even when braking at corners. - Throttle acceleration (TH-ACCEL) Gasoline engine cars have a time lag before the clutch and brakes are connected. The TH-ACCEL function minimizes this time lag. - Throttle speed (TH-SPEED) Sudden trigger operation on slippery roads only spins the wheels unreasonably and does not accelerate smoothly. Setup the throttle speed function allows smooth and enjoyable operation while at the same time reducing battery consumption.
- Start function (AT-START) When the throttle trigger is set to full throttle simultaneously with starting on slippery roads, the wheels spin and the vehicle does not accelerate (start). Setup the start function allows smooth starting. - Steering speed (ST-SPEED) "When you sense that the steering servo is too fast, etc., the servo operating speed (direction that suppresses the maximum speed) can be adjusted. - Racing timer (TIMER) A lap timer can record 99 lap times and the total time. The timer can also be started automatically by trigger operation. The race time and an audible alarm can be set. A navigation timer effective during training runs is provided. Target lap and refueling time can be indicated by audible alarm. Other timers are an up timer and a down timer. - Digital trim The trim position is constantly displayed on an LCD screen. The operation amount of 1 step can also be adjusted. Steering and throttle trim operations have no effect on the maximum steering position. - Function select dial function (FUNC-DIAL) This function assigns a function to trimmers (digital trim, button trim, knob). The step size and operating direction can also be adjusted. Trim positioning at each model call is unnecessary because all the dials are digital. - Function select switch function (FUNC-SW) This function assigns functions to the two installed switches. The operating direction can also be set. - Black antenna - Tension adjustment function Stick tension can be adjusted from the outside. - Adjustable Throttle Stick Travel (Mechanical ATL) - Display switch Functions can be set without emitting radio waves. - Receiver w/DSC is standard equipment (Connection cord is option.)

When Steering and Throttle Travel is Insufficient When the steering servo travel is insufficient even when D/R is 100% and EPA is 120%, programmable mixing can be used to increase the travel somewhat. (Reference data) - PROG NIX1->ON - MST (master channel) -> ST Mixing is applied from steering - SLV (slave channel) ->ST Mixing is applied to steering and the travel is increased. - RGH -> 10% [When subtrim is centered (0%)] - LFT -> 10% [When subtrim is centered (0%)] - TRM -> OFF - OFS -> 0% - MXMD -> MIX However, the operating range of the servo is exceeded even if a large value is input at RIGH and LEFT and a Full right zone over which the servo does not operate even when Full left the stick is moved to the left or right is created. A zone over which the servo does not operate is also generated Zone over which servo at the moving side when the subtrim is moved to the does not operate left and right. Therefore, set the RIGH and LEFT value by checking servo operation. When the throttle servo travel is insufficient at ATL 100% and EPA120%, the same action can be performed by making TH (throttle) both the MST and SLV when steering. When both steering and throttle operations are performed, use both PROG MIX1 and PROG MIX2 program mixing.

HRS ECS setup/MC-SETUP
This function is used only when using an FET amp like that shown below with a high response system (HRS System). This function is not used when using a Futaba amp. The frame rate of the transmitter output signal at setup may be counted and the setup mode forcefully ended after a fixed time has elapsed, depending on the commercially available FET amp. If such an FET amp is used with the high response system, the setup time will be substantially shortened and FET amp setup may become difficult. When you have an FM receiver or PCM receive, only amp setup is possible in the PPM or PCM mode. When using this function to make adjustments, the FET amp must be directly connected to the transmitter. Also, the following connection cords are necessary. - Two-way cord (Must be bought separately.) - DSC cord (Supplied with set.)
