A return of another RCTA favourite.  The RC5HL which converts true professional RC radio signals to the Heng Long format used by the RX-18 controller (27mHz ONLY).

Here is the RC5HL Lite.  This unit runs the exact same firmware as our regular RC5HL.  However, to make a low cost, simple to use unit that can be used as an interim or permanent 2.4gHz upgrade  many of the technical features have been omitted.  The RC5HL lite will provide the basic conversion of proper R/C radio protocol to the Heng Long format.  There are no extra switching or LED functions as found on the full version.  Further, the voltage regulator on the Lite can only supply enough current for the RC5HL and attached receiver.  To operate servos you will need a separate $5 BEC from Hobby King or where ever.

The RC5HL also comes supplied with a cable to connect to your receiver.

To use the RC5HL a minumum of 5 R/C channels is required with a switch on CH5 (Gear switch) operating between neutral and 100%.


The RC5HL operates according to the standard order used by Tamiya (RTEA)

CH1 - RUD -Steering control 

CH2 - THR - Motor control - forwards/backwards/acceleration

CH3 - ELE - Gun elevation with main canon fire at +100% and machine gun fire at -100%

CH4 - AIL - Turret rotation

CH5 - GEA - Ignition, toggle switch between neutral and +100% to turn on/off tank.

The input connector on the LITE is the same as for the full version and has 7 inputs.  Channels 6 & 7 ane NOT used and can be left unconnected.

NOTE: This product ONLY works with the RX18 27mHz unit.  There is no such available option for the newer Heng Long 2.4gHz units (and there will never be).
