    Anyone linked a TQi to a none Traxxas Model yet?

    As title really.

    How did it go?

    I'm really interested a TQi, but want radio gear to run all my models, one of which isn't Traxxas.

    Thanks

    Traxxas will link to Traxxas only. No cross-contamination, so to speak. So if your non-Traxxas vehicle has a Traxxas LINK compatible receiver then it should.

    Sorry, should have put the question better, my bad.

    I realise it will need the correct Traxxas receiver installed, I was more curious how the transmitter/iphone/app worked with none Traxxas stuff.

    I have an E-revo & a Ken Block Rally, both i guess will work fine once I upgrade the receivers (if needed), but how will the transmitter cope with my crawler, which is bits of all sorts thrown together?

    An Tx communicates with the Rx... the Rx does not care what is hooked up to it or what it is in; it just sends signal and power to whatever you have attached to it.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Thanks, but I already know that. I was more interested in how the app handled it. My bad, should have been more specific.

    The app has no functionality to put a photo of your own car or anything in there, you just create a new profile, pick the closest traxxas car as the starting point and change all the settings.
    For the most part you'd only be playing around with the steering and throttle expo on a crawler anyway, so it'll work fine.

    I've finally borrowed an Iphone & had a look at the app.
    I'm now not sure what I think. It appears you only have option to reverse channels 3,4 & 5, but that's it. Have I missed something, ie end point adjustment?
