  • Wireless Controller Issues

    After an extended conversation with BigT last night I decided to try to recreate what he was suggesting. He is having issues where if he adds a 5th and 6th controller (not wired) the cars occasionally stutter and though maybe the signal is getting confused somehow. He started testing and found the issue below which is exactly how his cars are acting.

    I took 4 digital controllers (no wired controllers) and programed them all to be #1.
    I programed a car and started running the car. The car stuttered at first and then ran but at certain times would stop or stutter. I grabbed a second controller and the car ran for a short while and stopped again. 3rd and 4th controller wouldn't even move the car.
    Interesting.

    Obviously no one is going to have all their controllers set the same and leave it to Tim to find an issue but I wonder if there is something to this that's causing his issue.

    This issue is why multiple controllers should never be coded to the same ID. If people have cars doing that, making sure there aren't duplicates is a common suggestion.

    I guess the real question is, if he has already made sure there are no conflicts with wired or wireless controller assignments, if the problem still exists, then why?

    Does he have ANY wired controllers? If so, he'd also need to make sure the wired ones are not conflicting with the wireless ones, e.g. the confusing ports 3/4 becoming 5/6 when the wireless dongle is installed.

      If one has Carrera controllers coded to all 6 IDs and then codes other wireless controllers, from another brand, to replace the Carrera ones, would that cause issues? If so, how does one "uncode" controllers to code others without causing issues?

        Just make sure the replaced controllers don't get turned on, and it should be fine. Just guessing, though.
        Worst case, open them up and unhook the battery.

          I'll Clear this up a little on how this happens at least for me. I'm new to carrera slots,the people i race with are mostly new to slot cars in general. some of the people come grab a controller(all wireless) because they like that color or what ever, say there's only three racers, now all my controllers are assigned 1-red 2-yellow 3-black 4- grey 5-blue 6-green, Now someone walks in grabs green controller it there favorite color but there's only three of us racing. my natural reaction was to assign green controller to number three although black already is assigned to three. so its my ignorance so in the future I've written down all colors and numbers of controllers posted it by my control unit and from now on I refer to the sheet certain color gets certain number assignment. I'm learning slowly but surely the little quirks with digital racing I STILL LOVE IT but it has a learning curve ;-)

            Perfectly reasonable thing to do.
            Or swap the buttons.

              Make all the buttons the same color then slap a number on each controller. Black Sharpie.

              Before putting numbers on mine, I has the controllers in color spectrum order RoY G Biv. Got tired of reciting that and trying to figure out which controller someone had. Now I just ask them WHAT NUMBER YOU GOT!

                It's nice to have a base with colored buttons that can be corresponded to color identifiers on the controllers.

                  Well what I discovered through this process with the controllers, that I did not know already. Is when you push the little button on top of the controllers to assign them they flash the light what ever amount of times to indicate what number there assigned to. So now if someone hands me a controller it’s as easy as pushing that button counting the flashing light tells you what number it’s already assigned to, so you don’t double to controllers to same allocation. What’s precived as common sense , is a lot of time a learned knowledge that a new person hasn’t encountered yet. But I know now
