Tactic TTX600 2.4GHz radio (TWIN THROTTLE CONTROL)

Dual Throttle Control In Your Tactic 6 Channel
Now Available Only From Harbor Models, The Tactic TTX600 6 Channel 2.4GHz Radio with Twin Throttle Control.
Now you can control twin props independently just as you could with the discontinued Robbe F-14 Radio.

The throttle has been modified, tested and fitted to work with the Tactic TTX600 2.4GHz radio as listed below. The radio uses 2 of the 6 functions for controlling motor speed and allows for 4 remaining functions for steering and other auxiliary functions. (Acceptable use of the twin throttle control on other radios cannot be guarenteed)

Harbor Models did sell them but their listing of the part is missing now. You can order them through a dealer in the UK.

dual throttle

I thought it would be nice to have twin throttles also but the radio is only $99.00 from horizon and others. Less ftom HK. I just cant justify $200 for twin throttles. Maybe $100.00 shipped It is nice that someone took the time to come up with one for those of us that want one though.

Wellll... taking into account that its a niche market in a niche market I'm pretty sure that Harbor Models knows they aren't going to sell very many of them no matter what. So, if they had to design and hire out the twin stick gimbal to fit into the Tactic radio case then this is probably what they felt it had to cost in order for them to get their money back.

This is why the big radio manufacturers don't offer something like that. How many are they honestly going to sell? 50 a year? How can they ever get their money back?
So, for all the guys who have been crying over the years about why can't someone build me a twin throttle stick radio- here it is.

How did you do it? I have a Futaba 8J that I use with my other models and would like to have two throttles on it like the Harbor Models TX! Gerald
