Question for those who use a FS-GT2E or FS-GT2B or FS-GT2G


Am I right in thinking these only bind with one receiver at a time ?

Unlike the FS-GT3B or GT3C that can bind with 10 receivers and switch between them.

Hi Tom  :wave:



I believe you are correct on that.  L:

The FS-GT2E etc. are the simplest & cheapest, of the fairly extensive 'FlySky' range of Transmitters.  :shocked:



Some of the more expensive & complex Transmitters, with L.C.D. screens & the like, I think will bind to several Receivers.

I am not sure on which do or don't & what exactly are the extra features included though.  ???



I don't think anyone here is using any of the the more complex 'FlySky' Transmitters ... YET ! ...  :P

... So I guess it's a case of R.T.F.M.  ;)



:)



Si.



These look like they could be worth checking out.  :thumb:

They aren't even as EXPENSIVE as they  L :cool: :cool: K  either !

They may  I THINK ?  be able to control TWO trains at once, one on each of the two sticks.  L:

Note the 2  O/I  On/Off  buttons, one each side.

I checked out a video review and the Tx can handle 10 different receivers.
 
Although it did not mention it, I presume as it is used for cars and boats,
only 1 receiver and its model can be moving at one time,
somewhat like a Protocab Tx that can control 9 locomotives but only 1 'in steam' and moving.

I'm using one Si - hence why I ask about the GT2 range which I haven't got !


I got a GT3B in 2017 when I started my experiments with this cheap system.
Problem was I'd ordered a GT3C.
However I ended up getting a full refund from eBay for it, as it wasn't as described.

Had to wait around 3 months and give them the opportunity to send me the return postage before I could use it though,
by which time I'd gone back to Thailand and so haven't used it until recently.


As it comes it has 10 memory slots, so you can use it with up to 10 receivers.
I'm only currently using it with 2, but I have more on order.

You can do a mod on it that allows a firmware hack that gives you 63 slots,
but that's probably OTT for my purposes.


There seems to be only about $10 between the GT2E and the GT3B at the moment anyway.
So I think the more expensive one is the better bet.

Only bad point is it takes 12 rather than 4 AA cells.
I've modded mine to take 3 18650 Li-Ion cells

Hi Guys  :wave:


I have NOT read the manual on these ^^ 'FlySky' Transmitters ...  :old dude:

... but note the TWO  O/I  On/Off  buttons ! ...

... I'm unsure why ? ... But it looks like 1 for each of the 2 sticks ?  L:


Also

Because each stick can be set up to operate on a different channel ...  :brill:

... to control TWO trains at once, you just connect the Receiver channels accordingly, in each of the trains.



I think you could then have eg. a mainline-loco & yard-switcher, working at once, from 1 Transmitter ...

... or maybe 2 yard-switchers in operation from 1 Transmitter, switching the same yard.  :P



Just a couple of ideas, which MAY be possible, with some thought to setting up the various Receiver channels.  L:



:cool:



Si.

Real nice transmitter. 


You should be able to bind several receivers, so that you separately switch on the loco to be controlled and let the other switched off.
That was my approach in the beginning with using 2,4Ghz RC for trains, with a modified Spektrum Transmitter at that time.
Or you assign a loco to a certain transmitter stick as Si proposed. 


The two buttons are simply that what their imprint shows.
Power on/off buttons, only that - according to the manual - you have to press both at the same time.

Thanks Juergen  :thumb: :thumb:


2 thumbs needed to switch On/Off then.  ;)


I guess this must be a 'Safety Feature' then ...  L:

... so it is less likely that the Transmitter is switched OFF when in use.

It is an incredibly well designed and incredibly well made transmitter

It makes any stick transmitters I've used in the past look like they are from the stone age

The most incredible thing of all is if you look around you can buy this for less than the price of some brands receivers
