I spent the day soldering the individual lights to the rainbow cable. Four lights to go, all on the front of the truck. The front turn signals and the marker lights in front of the doors. I may turn the markers into turn signal repeaters.

I got my Beier UFR-1230 ESC, today. Tractor works fine remotely, but the lights and sounds do not work any more. I desperately need help!

I have a 8 ch rx in my rig. C1 is steering Ch3 is throttle Ch2 and Ch4 are for auxiliary things such as lights and sound functions. I have the gear select servo on CH5 as it has 3 positions that match the positions of the switch on the tx. If I were to convert all light and sound function to switches the Beier unit only recognises on off switches or two position switches unlike the three position switches on my taranis. So because of this all Sound effects and lighting functions have to be on Ch2 and CH4

Currently the ESC is attached to ch1, ch3, and ch2. The cable from the output1 of the ESC is going to Ch1 input on the sound module. The shifter servo is plugged into Ch5. Ch6 is plugged into the Ch3 port on the Sound Module and Ch7 is plugged into Ch4 port of the sound module.

I unplugged all the connections between the RX and the Sound module. I now have the ability to turn on the lights and off the lights I have some sounds working. Soldering has become quite difficult after my stroke on February 5th but I can re-learn how to do it.

I know it has been a while but after reading the instruction manual for both the Beier ESC and Sound module I have made even more changes I finally have some control over sound and lights. One of my changes involved moving the final three light positions around and thus a re-wiring of those three lights.

I have started seeing 1:1 Cascadias with cow catchers and other mods. I guess it is because they have been sold out of fleet service and independent owner operators are purchasing them. So I guess the fenders aren't as unrealistic as I had first thought.
