Tamiya TBLE-04S – Switching from Brushed to Brushless Mode

The TBLE-04S ESC has the ability to power both brushed and brushless motors. Out of the box, the TBLE-04S is set up to work with the Mabuchi motor that comes in most of our kits.
But what if you want to replace that motor with a more powerful brushless motor?
In this video we show you how to do just that! We go through the programming steps needed to switch the TBLE-04S from brushed to brushless mode!
You should also be aware of the two battery cut-off modes as well – LOW battery voltage protection (cuts off at approximately 5.6v) and HIGH battery voltage protection (cuts off at approximately 6.2v). We will have a separate video on that coming soon.

Tamiya 58690 Landfreeder Quadtrack TT-02FT unboxing video

It’s been sometime since we’ve done a stand-along unboxing here on the channel, but when the Tamiya Landfreeder Quadtrack RC Truck Kit arrived we felt it needed to be seen. This new kit from Tamiya is based on the TT-02 chassis, but is now designated as the TT-01 FT because of the four tracks on the trucks suspension. That’s right, no wheels, just tracks to help the off-road truck tackle nasty terrain like sand and snow. In this video, Greg will go through the box and show you some of the unique parts. Tamiya RC model fans will surely appreciate seeing some of these new parts up close. Make sure to subscribe so you don’t miss the review of this truck!
