Ok gang, question ...
I am looking at this Futaba transmitter, "ATTACK 4YWD". Its 4 channels. From what I understand, a tank needs at min 5 channels in order to support forward, reverse, turning, shooting, elevation and turret.
This receiver is compatible with futaba receivers that are 5,6,7 and 8 channels.
What's the deal with a 4 channel transmitter being able to work with a 8 channel receiver? What would be the point?
If I were to plug in 5 servos into the receiver, but the transmitter was only 4 channels, then 1 of those items would be non-operational...correct?
I like Futaba from my rc car days, and overall it looks like a good model.
Sorry if this is a silly q for some of you. Still putting this stuff together. Thanks
