    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 typed... 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

    yes it is, but what exactly are you trying to do here? on\off for lights? or somthing like the OP with a useable motor type system like a winch.

    Oh brill...
    I did start a thread at this link recently
    https://traxxas.com/forums/showthrea...-TQi-2-4ghz-Tx

    Got no replies so thought no one knew the answer so kept searching and reading on the net, would you like to carry on from there or do you want me to start all over?
