Procat 2.4g conversion help
« on: June 12, 2020, 06:24:25 PM »


I have a angling technics procat that im am upgrading to a 2.4g radio system. I have the original circuit board out wich has the receiver directly soldered to it. I know its possible to desolder the original receiver and solder servo leads in so it can be used with a new receiver but im abit unsure of the pin out. Has anyone else done this mod or can help me in any way? Much thanks

same as that, the hull had been damaged by the previous owner who`d try to repair the electronics without success, Im new to this rc stuff but have got the bug now, like you Ive  ripped out the old mother board and started again, I wont bore you with the details but with reguard to the transmitter and reciever I went for the Microzone Mc6a 6 channel comes as a pair from Howes models, (been a good firm to deal with)
Im currently waiting for an rx controlled on/off switch to power the lighting setup and some new screws and nuts to replace the stupid security bolts that hold the weed guards on. (if you need some I`ll have thousands of em come the weekend {-) ) Ive also shortened the bait flap and will be fitting a new servo to release it.
If I can I`ll send you some pics.

Hi guys
Hope I can jump on your thread
Iím having problems with my procat mk3 and wanting to upgrade the system. Iím very new to this so need to keep it as simple as possible please!!
It has a distance issue and wonít work more than 5m away. Iím looking to replace the main board/transmitter/receiver but keeping the current wiring where it is.
Is it possible? Is it hard to do? Is it expensive?
Any help is appreciated
Joe

Before you do any thing try moving the receiver antenna to its highest point . and run again . and all the battries are charged
