In this Chapter we will test the Skateboard sub assembly (20-25. Chapter).

Step 1: Transmitter Manual

For the following step, please prepare:

  • Your transmitter User Manual (1x)
  • Your transmitter (1x)
  • Rechargeable Battery for the transmitter: Typically: 4x AA Battery

Sub-Steps:

  1. Rear your transmitter User Manual and understand the functions. You can found the Fly Sky FS GT5 and the Injora T6 transmitter user manual here in the assembly manual.
  2. Put the rechargeable batteries (Typically: 4x AA Battery) into the Transmitter

It is important to understand your transmitter functions, because it has a big effect for the proper/not proper working.

Step 2: Steering direction

For the following step, please prepare:

  • Your transmitter (1x)
  • Assemblyed Skateboard (1x)

Sub-Steps:

  1. Turn on your rear ESC if you build a RWD version, turn on the front ESC too if you build an AWD version.
  2. Turn on the transmitter
  3. Check the Steering direction: Rotate the Steering Wheel slightly (not completely!) to left and right. If the directions are ok, you can go to the Step 3.
  4. If the steering directions aren’t ok, you should reverse the first (ST, or CH1) channel.

On every Transmitter you can set these settings at slightly differently way

Step 3: Drive direction

For the following step, please prepare:

  • Your transmitter (1x)
  • Assemblyed Skateboard (1x)

Sub-Steps:

  1. Place the skateboard on the ground and press the acceleration arm slightly and check that the RC car go forward
  2. Press the acceleration arm to the other way and check if the RC car go backwards
  3. If the car not moving and you have an AWD version: It is possible that one of the motor try to drive forward the other in backward.
    Lift up the front and rear of the RC car one after the other and check the direction of rotation of the wheels.
  4. If some wheel rotated in a wrong way, than you should change the motor connection in the Skateboard center! Check the Chapter 25 / Step 5 and Step 11 one more time!

  1. The drivetrain is connected to the second channel (TH, or CH2).
  2. If booth of the motor rotated in a wrong direction, you could theoretical change it in the transmitter to reverse the direction, but we don’t recommend it, because some controller give less power in the reverse direction, which means your RC car will go slower forward! Therefore we recommend the direction change with a connection modification.

Step 4: Steering center (SUB-TR)

For the following step, please prepare:

  • Your transmitter (1x)
  • Assemblyed Skateboard (1x)

Sub-Steps:

  1. Drive the RC car backwards and forwards along a clearly visible straight line and observe whether it deviates to the left or right of the straight line. If the RC car is deviating from the straight line, you need to adjust the steering channel until the RC car is going straight.
  2. This function is called “Sub Trim” on the recievers.

As with the steering, the throttle channel can be fine-tuned in the same way.

Step 5: Steering limiter (EPA)

For the following step, please prepare:

  • Your transmitter (1x)
  • Assemblyed Skateboard (1x)

Sub-Steps:

  1. Steer slowly to the far left, then to the right. If there is a rattling noise from the steering linkage rod, it is necessary to limit the steering’s end position.
  2. This function is called “EPA” (End-Point Adjustment) on the recievers.

As with the steering, the throttle channel can be fine-tuned in the same way with the EPA, if you want to slow down the RC car.

Step 6: Other

For the following step, please prepare:

  • Your transmitter (1x)
  • Assemblyed Skateboard (1x)

Sub-Steps:

  1. Read thought the transmitter user manual for all option to know all of the features.

If you finish the play, make sure you:

  1. Turn off the ESC
  2. Turn off the Transmitter and remove the batteries from the transmitter
  3. Remove the battery from the Tesla Cybertruck Skateboard and don’t leave it fully charged/discharged, or the battery can damage permanently! Charge it immediately until 50-60%!

  1. I connected the front light as described in the manual. At startup, all the LEDs turn color and then go out. Sometimes I can turn the light on by controlling channel 5, but there is no consitence in it. Sometimes they light up but usually not. What exactly needs to be set for these to work correctly?
    The tail lights work perfectly. Switching between these 2 channels brings the same result. Tail lights work fine, front light does not.

    • You have to turn on/off the channel were you connected the front led and everything is turned on the car and tramsitter. The first color will be the white one if you turn it off and on the lights will change.
      But I saw from your images, you already solved it :).
      It is because it have a small circuit in the led and that is a default value for it.
