    27mhz to 2.4ghz tqi question

    I just bought a tqi 4 channel radio for my used summit I just bought.
    Is it pretty much a direct swap? I already have a tqi 5 channel reciever I was using on my Revos before I went with the spektrum.

    Yeah, its pretty much a direct swap. Just make sure you plug into the correct channels on the Rx.

    Cool, thanks.
    Reason I was asking is that there is a module in the receiver box that I think doesn't get used when you go 2.4 ghz.

    No need for the module anymore...

    Ch5 Rear Diff Servo
    Ch4 Front Diff Servo
    Ch3 Transmission Servo
    Ch2 ESC
    Ch1 Steering
    Ch1 Steering
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    Well, I got the new transmitter today and was installing the TQi receiver and noticed that the tlock module also powers the lights, so I had to keep the module in there but needed to plug in the rear lock servo to channel 5 since the TQi wants to use all 5 ports on the receiver, otherwise it locks both diffs on the first switch position.
    Other than that , everything works fine and the iPod dock functions great.
