The RCT-Tx10 transmitter
This is the most basic of the RCT transmitters. It is ideal for controlling a simple battery powered loco. The transmitter has a rotary speed control knob which controls both the loco's speed and direction. When the transmitter is not in bind mode, the bind button can be used for controlling accessories such as a servo, lighting or triggering an effect on a soundcard, such as the horn or whistle. The LED in the on/off switch also provides feedback (eg flashing when the transmitter is in bind mode).


Speed knob
The speed knob controls Channels 1 and 6. It is a 300° rotary control with center click. The knob is used to control speed and direction.
On/off button
The illuminated push-button turns the transmitter on and off. The LED also provides information for the user - it flashes once a second during the binding process (see Bind button below) and will also flash irregularly when the battery in the transmitter is running low
Bind button
Receivers need to be 'paired' with the RCT-Tx10. The binding process is only necessary once per receiver. To bind a receiver to the RCT-Tx10
  1. The receiver is put into bind mode (eg with the RCT-Rx65b, switch it on and wait 20 seconds until its LED starts to flash rapidly). 
  2. Press and hold the bind button on the RCT-Tx10
  3. Switch on the RCT-Tx10 and then release the bind button. 
  4. Binding is complete when the LEDs stop flashing. 
 Once the Tx is switched on, the Bind button can be used to control receiver outputs such as servos, lighting or soundcard effects via Channel 5.

You can bind as many receivers as you want to the RCT-Tx10 but, of course, if they are all switched on at the same time they will all respond the the commands from the transmitter. Make sure only one loco bound to the transmitter is switched on at any one time. If you want the transmitter to control more than one loco independently, then you might be interested in the RCT-Tx22.

Variants 1 and 2 of the RCT-Rx65b and Deltang Rx65b receivers are compatible with this transmitter as is the RCT-Rx102 receiver (see Receivers)
