    Carp king baitboat question

    I want to buy one secondhand. But I see the add say its got a 2-channel TX. Now how can you operate a bait boat with two channels? How will you work the buckets without a free channel? One channel is surely used for the motor, and the other channel for steering?

    If you running CS - you can use throttle to steer. The other channel would be to drop the bait.

    One channel is for steering the other channel (fwr/rev) works the motor and bait buckets. In neutral the motor is off, forward position turns motor on reverse drop the buckets

    All the marine type radios I've ever seen have only been 2 channel, even the bait boats that I've seen come in at speed models were 2 channel.
