Steering Wheel : Control direction (Left/Right) of the RC model. Throttle Trigger : Control speed and direction (Forward/Brake/Backward) of the driving model.
ON / OFF Switch : Power ON / OFF the transmitter.
SW1 Button : Is used to synchronize the connection between the transmitter and the receiver. It also serves as additional function on different model.
LED Indicator : For indicating battery low, pairing in progress and normal operation.

Steering Reverse : Reverse the response direction when operating Steering Wheel.
Throttle Reverse : Reverse the response direction when operating Throttle Trigger.
Throttle Limit Switch : Set the max Forward Speed of the model.
* In general, user will experience under steer when making a wide turn at high speed or over steer when making sharp turn at high speed (easy to spin out). User should practice the Throttle and steering approach for different cornering at different speed or road surface.

Battery Installation
  1. Supplied with 4 x 1.5V AA Batteries, radio can be operated a few hours.
    Installation: Remove the battery compartment cover as shown below.
  2. Install the batteries observing the polarity marked on battery compartment.Carisma SUZUKI Jimny JB74 User Manual  & troubleshooting 5
  3. Then reinstall the battery compartment cover as the Picture shown below.

  2. Submit the wasted batteries to specific recycling stations.
Battery LED Indicator

The LED solid on indicating that the batteries have sufficient power. When batteries voltage drops below 4 volts, LED will Flash, indicating batteries power is low and should be replaced.Carisma SUZUKI Jimny JB74 User Manual  & troubleshooting 6

MBC-24JST USB Charger

This charger is designed to charge the included 7.2V NiMH packs only. DO NOT charge any other type of battery. It is NOT intended for LiPo or Li-ion packs; or packs of a lower or higher voltage rating. When connected to a standard USB power source (500 mA or above is recommended), a red LED will light up indicating that the power is ON. During charging the maximum charging current is approx. 100mA, and when the pack is fully charged, the charging current will drop.
A typical time to fully charge a completed drained battery is 2 hours. After charging, disconnect the USB charger, and the pack. It is normal for the pack itself to feel slightly warm after charging.
NOTE: A partly discharged pack will take shorter time to be fully charged. BUT, due to the physiology of the NiMH packs, and their tenancy for memory effect, it is always best to fully discharge and cycle NiMH packs. It may take a few cycles for your pack to reach its full potential.

REMEMBER: younger RC fans must always charge the pack under adult supervision, and never leave the charging pack unattended. The red LED will NOT turn off, it only indicates that USB power is present. It is advised that you set a timer to independently notify you when the 2 hour charge cycle is complete. Failure to adhere to the correct charging procedure can lead to permanent damage to the pack, and in extreme cases, fire or personal injury. Charge smart, charge safe, follow guidelines.

ARC-2000: RX/ESC Module Instructions

BINDING PROCESS
  1. Power off the TX
  2. Press and hold the Bind key of the ARC-2000 combined RX/ESC on the vehicle itself, and then turn it on. the ARC’s LED will start to flash slowly.
  3. Next hold the Bind button of CTX-2000 transmitter and then power it on. Again an LED will flash on the CTX when the binding process is initiated.
  4. When the ARC shows a solidly lit LED, this indicates both TX and RX units have successfully paired and bound.
  5. In the event the ARC LED stops flashing, this indicates the RX is not found by the TX. Move the position of the TX closer, and then start the procedure at step 1.Carisma SUZUKI Jimny JB74 User Manual  & troubleshooting 12
  6. If you drive the vehicle at full throttle for long periods of time, the motor may become too hot. This will eventually damage the motor. The ARC will sense this and automatically stop the motor (Thermal Shutdown) for a while, allowing it to cool. The ARC LED will flash 6 times very quickly, and repeat this until the motor has cooled sufficiently. NOTE: If this happen again within a short space of time, the Thermal Shutdown time will be longer.
  7. Setting Battery Type: During normal operation with TX, RX power on and throttle at stop position. Hold the Bind Key of ARC-2000 for over 5 seconds, the battery type will be changed to the next battery type. And the LED will immediately reflect the battery type that has been selected.
    LED: Solid = NiMH Flashing = LiPo
