    Channels 4 and 5 are only half channels.
    Channel 3 is the only channel that can control a winch as it is the only one (besides steering and throttle) that has a forward/neutral/reverse.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Hello:

    I was reading the web and several forums, then May I exchange the cables from channel 3 switch to channel 4 switch to use 3 position switch on top to control 3rd channel with neutral (or off) in the center position ? there exist a how-to ?

    best regards

    If you take the wires off of the 3 position switch, you will loose both channel 4 and 5 and you can only gain one of these channels back by adding them to the thumb switch.

    Read this thread:

    It may help you.

    hello:

    I do it, exchange the cables and re soldering in the board and now 3 position switch (the stick on top) works on channel 3 and has on-off-on and the side switch (red one) works on channel 4 and is on/off .... the channel 5 was lost, only works to supply power for the fan ....

    soon I will put photos and some explanation

    regards
