"  I've done that alteration for two locos years ago.
The caveat is that there's only one channel stick ( usually the left vertical one ) that stays put in the position you push it to,
the others are all of the return-to-neutral type.

I think I've described already in this forum how to modify that for two-loco operation,
i.e. make the right vertical stick a shift-type, too.

It is easy to bind two receivers to the same transmitter, provided you use separate ESCs with them.
There's channels 1&3 for one (left) loco, and channels 2&4 for the other (right ) loco.

The idea is NOT that you run two locos simultaneously, except when doubleheading maybe,
but to minimize the number of transmitters to use when operating singe-handed.
It is just fun to have two locos run alternatively for some complicated switching and the like."


Hi Helmut  :wave:



Is this basically what you have done ?

It looks interesting ... Kinda 'stick-shift' styleee !  :pimp:





Nice looking metalwork.  :thumb:

I'm guessing it's aluminium perhaps ?  ???

Maybe 'double-sided-taped' over the control ?  L:



:brill: :brill: :brill: :brill: :brill:

@Si
No, that's a version where I just wanted to have well-defined neutral and headlight-switch positions.
True, the guiding slots are held in place by double-sided sticky tape.
The material is white plastic sheet.

" can anybody tell me how the Mad Munkey or Master Cho mods. differ from this Bad Wolf ? "


Hi Guys  :wave:



Sorry, but I've absolutely NO IDEA what a 'Mad Munkey' or 'Master Cho' is whatsoever ?:us:


But ... THIS is a 'Bad Wolf' !  :moose:





There seems to be a whole sub-culture of crazy-hip-kids out there ...

... making & modding radio-controlled SKATEBOARDS !  :shocked:


A very large number of them are using 'FlySky' R.C. components, mostly 'modded'.  :brill:

The 'Bad Wolf' ^^ above is a D.I.Y. homemade $4!7 3D-printed handset case, by Mr Wolf !

The board used is 'similar' to the GT2 (12-Volt) one Helmut modded & the GT2E (6-Volt) one, in this Thread ...

... but is in fact a later-generation board, from the GT2B (3.7-Volt) Transmitter.  :cool:



There are a TON of other 3D-printed handset designs out there as well ...

... but hip SK8ER kid 'Mr Bad Wolf' has aced it ! ... In the world of R.C. skateboards at least !  ;)



:!:

Here is yet another 3D-printed enclosure, designed for modding the 'FlySky' Transmitter components.  :brill:



The Transmitter board in the photo, is from the 'FlySky' GT2E (6-Volts) featured throughout this Thread.

The shell of the GT2E Transmitter, which the P.C.B. boards came from, provides a useful size comparison.
