R2-KT User Guide

Listed below is documentation on R2-KT and normal operational guidelines I use.

Transmitter

R2-KT uses a Spektrum FX5e transmitter radio and a Spektrum AR500 receiver. All of the Spectrums are on the 2.4GHZ frequency. It's not air or ground so its as safe as a cell phone. The small button on the upper lef-hand side of the remote serves as a convenient sound trigger and accesses certain key R2 sounds at random. This makes it easier than operating the separate, smaller dedicated sound remote. The sound remote has access to three banks of sounds including music and other assorted sound effects.

R2-KT's Batteries


R2-KT's systems are run off of two gel cell 12v 18 amp-hour batteries and one gel cell 12v 7 amp-hour battery.
Dimensions:

12v 18ah batteries
7" long x 6 1/2" tall x 3" wide
177.8 mm long x 165.1 mm tall x 76.2 mm wide

12v 7ah battery
6" long x 3 3/4" tall x 2 1/2" wide
152.4 mm long x 95.25 mm tall x 63.5 mm wide

All three power chargers trunk into one wire that plugs into the rear octagon port. There is a switch hidden next to the port that has three positions. The central position is neutral for when KT is off. Turning the switch to the right activates all systems for 'power on'. Turning the switch to the left draws power from the plug to the batteries for charging. Click on the thumbnail picture to the left for a larger view.

The 12 volt batteries charge for 10 hours each and yield about 2 hours run time.
The small red RC battery and the RC hand held transmitter charges for at least 12 hours.
Batteries should not be plugged while unit is not being used or they will drain slightly.
The one 12 volt battery for the sounds will last a long time before requiring a recharge.

Here is a reference list of parts on the standard R2 unit.
