The Traxxas TQi radio system can be
reset with just a few simple steps. If the settings have been changed
accidentally and you want to revert to the default settings, follow these
instructions. The TQi transmitter comes in several
different models but can always be identified by the two buttons on top.
Begin with the transmitter turned off. It is not necessary for the vehicle to be
powered on. While pressing and holding the set and menu buttons, power on the
transmitter and then release the buttons. The LED will blink red. The next step
will vary based on which Traxxas model you have. For any of these models, select
Profile 1 by simply tapping the set button once. For these models, select
Profile 2. Tap menu once. The LED will blink twice. Now tap set once. For Jato
models, select Profile 3. Tap menu twice. The LED will blink three times. Now tap
set once. For any of these models, select Profile 4. Tap menu three times. The
LED will blink four times. Now tap set once. For T-Maxx models, select Profile 5. Tap menu four times. The LED will blink five times. Now tap set once. For the Traxxas Funny Car, select Profile 6. Tap menu five times. The
LED will blink six times. Now tap set once. At any time, you can
restart the process by turning off the transmitter, pressing and holding the two
buttons as you power it back on, and then entering the command for your model. When the TQi transmitter is equipped with a wireless module, the radio system can
also be reset using the Traxxas Link app. See the related videos for more
information on the TQi radio system, wireless module, and Traxxas Link app.
