Yes, fault lego for not including directions. Then, use your handy-dandy internet connection to google the directions and – PRESTO! – paper saved.
Set the middle selector to match the selector position of the IR receiver. Use the orange or blue dial as appropriate to the color into which the motor is plugged into the IR receiver. Match Tab A to Slot A. Couldn’t be simpler.
Works GREAT as part of a converted Lego 9V train setup – use the remote to control the 9V electric train set.

My sons have designed a ton of projects using these remote controls, it keeps them building functional designs just to see what they can do. They are 7 and 9. They have made an alligator that walks, a car with separately controlled lights, steering, and attack drill, it’s a great toy to encourage creativity.

I was a little surprised when I got the IR Speed Remote Control and it came without instructions but it was actually somewhat fun to discover how it works and it’s intuitive enough that I didn’t really need the instructions. It’s also somewhat standard with LEGO not to include written instruction so I was surprised but not shocked.
The remote can control up to 8 different devices. The IR (infra red) RX 8884 (sold separately) has two outputs, red and blue to which you can attach a motor. I suppose you could attach one motor to the red and one to the blue although I didn’t try that. There are 4 channels on the RX and 4 on the remote so you need to synchronize the two. If you wanted to control two trains with the one remote separately you would need to have each train on a different channel, set the speed on the one train and then switch to the second channel and set the speed on the second. I guess you could have two devices on the same IR RX with one on red and one on blue and control both at the same time with the two dials.
There is one caveat. Since this is infra red you need to have the remote pointed at the IR RX for it to work.
