The Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz computerized High Output radio system is equipped with superior Direct Sequence Spread-Spectrum (DSSS) technology, fully programmable features, and the convenience of patent-pending Traxxas Link automatic model recognition. Forget about crystals and frequency conflicts! The transmitterís easy-to-use design provides the instant, worry-free, turn-it-on-and-go driving fun you expect from Traxxas, while also delivering a full compliment of pro-level tuning features for those who wish to explore the expanded tuning possibilities. The Multi-Function knob on the face of the transmitter can be programmed to control a variety of functions such as steering exponential, steering and braking dual rate, and throttle trim. Access is through a simple menu tree controlled by a two-button interface. Other tuning options include end point adjustment, servo reversing, and sub trim adjustment. Top-level performance is what you expect from Traxxas, so the TQ 2.4GHz High Output pumps out a strong, clear signal for optimum range. The 13ms frame rate and near zero latency results in instant steering and throttle response along with precise, smooth control.

The exclusive Traxxas Link automatic model recognition software is a breakthrough in "model memory" that makes it easier than ever to enjoy multiple Traxxas Link enabled models without juggling transmitters or scrolling through complex menus searching for model names. Each time the transmitter is bound to a new receiver, it saves that receiver in its memory, along with all the model settings assigned to that receiver. The next time that transmitter and any previously bound receiver (up to 20!) are switched on, the transmitter automatically recalls the settings for that receiver. Just power up the transmitter and the model you want to drive, and the settings for that model are dialed in immediately! Up to 20 Traxxas Link enabled receivers and 20 Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz High Output transmitters can be cross bound together making it possible to grab ANY transmitter and ANY vehicle from the group, switch them on, and start driving. Itís perfect for when you have many vehicles you want to drive but donít want to have to keep up with which transmitter belongs to which model. Traxxas Link does it for you, seamlessly, behind the scene.

  • 2.4GHz Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (DSSS) clarity and control

Traxxas TQ 2.4GHz 2-Channel Radio System w/Traxxas Link (No Receiver)
DO NOT GET!! Write traxxas and complain. The concept is strong, but the implementation is weak. I have helped several buddies with this radio. They are traxxas freaks and where all excited about the adjustability of the new radio. That being said, where traxxas thinks this is some how easier to configure than a typical transmitter with a screen is beyond me. I have worked with PLC controllers that work like this radio, that have flashing lights and that is frustrating enough, but when you just want to set the end points on your servo throw, NO ONE! wants to count flashing lights. You literally have to get out the programing tree just to get to where you want. And then don't screw up because there is no way to check your settings. All I ask is that they charge a couple dollars more and put a small LCD screen that gives both a location ie ST for steering, the setting EPA, and a percent. If I have to show another first time user how to get to steering setting and they just look at me like I have 2 heads. What do you mean I have to count the flashes and some are long and some are short. Yeah that's easy to explain, while trying to get them to understand how the setting will affect how their car handles. Traxxas had a real opportunity here and they failed. Miserabaly, in fact when asked to program a one for a new person, I simply ask are you going to get more than one vehicle, if they answer yes I point them to several, radios that are 100 time easier to set up. If they really want to use the traxxas then they need to get out the "tree schematic" and I will go over it with them.
I feel like the guys from traxxas are like my engineer friends. They really don't understand. It has all the functions people want. Yeah, but if the average person can't pick it up in a couple of minutes those "feature" will never be used! Period. This is why most engineers are not interface designers. And I am not saying that having a screen would prevent all confusion, but I have had a computer radio since 1996 and it had a screen.
Anyway, please everyone who has this radio should complain and loudly, because they are not helping anyone out and its frustrating the people that have to support the new guys at the track.)
