First off, this is my fifth traxxas truck and 8th r/c I've had in the past year, so I think i have the basics covered. Here's my problem:
Took the summit out of the box, set it up, adjusted throttle trim because it was walking away at neutral throttle. I put a set of fully charged, matched 2s lipos with lv alarms in it and started driving. Went slow, tried out the gears and the lockers. Climbed a few small hills, got about 7 minutes of drive time out of it when the lights go out and the truck looses all power.
I brought it in, shut everything off, unplugged the batts and started over. Plugged in the batts, radio on, turn on ESC and the light flickers green for a second and then fades out--the light in the reciever box flickers red for a second and fades out. No response.
I put in the two nimh batteries that came with the truck (fully charged), radio on, turn on the esc and the same thing happens. I unhooked everything and tried again, same result. Here it is on video:
The set of lipos I used first work just fine in my Flux HP, so I know they are holding their charge.
Any idea what the problem might be? Was so looking forward to the Summit...
