Hello Everybody.
i have bought the new ZD Racing RTR MT8 Pirates 3,.

it seems its not a RTR as it needs programming of the Transmitter, the subtrim and EPA for steering makes the car moves backwards and forward, while the moving the steering wheel clockwise make the car move forward. please help, i am now to RC cars and i need some help in programming the transmitter which is the 24gh, 3 channel mixed control and a limit adjustment throttle for training..

maybe i need to reset it to factory seettnig maybe i did soemthing wrong before binding, cause maybe i entered the settings menu and played with it ..

I don't know about your radio gear ,you may have to rebind it ,or check an see that the servo's are plugged into
their correct spots on the receiver in the car!

Because when you turn the wheel on the transmitter ,the car takes off ,that tells me that the servo's are plugged
into the rec, in the wrong spots ,swap the two around!

You may not need to rebind ,just try swapping the wires!

I would think ,that channel 1 & 2 would be the primary channels for throttle & steering ,other than that ,I don't know about
your gear ,I was only suggesting what I said ,because that happens as well with that issue ,good luck!.....:thumbs-up:

That's a DumboRC transmitter. And I think the ESC is a hobbywing SC8. It seems like you just need to swap the plugs on the receiver.

There are no internal settings. I'm not sure what you changed
There is a menu which u can access if you check the manual , I'm sure i accessed it and changed something, i need to exact steps to reset the transmitter. i have the mt8 pirates 3 zd racing rc car and i think the transmitter is based on the dumbo rc 8277 transmitter

I've never owned one of those so I couldn't help you. I thought the trims, reverse, and dual rates were all switches and dials. Are you sure you haven't changed the settings on the ESC?

Channel one is for steering channel 2 is for throttle. Unless it's a Traxxas and you have 2 steering channels. but they are both Mark Channel One and throttle is channel 2. The black wire on the three wire bundle is the ground wire and it will go to the outside of the receiver. Make sure black wire is in correct position

I think the wire is in the good position. It was functional without any problem. But after a several times of playing the servo begins to make this thing.
This electrical parts(receiver, servo, esc) are waterproof on pirates3?
