I haven't had an RC in 20+ years and finally decided to get back into it. Of course the technology is totally new to me so bear with me if you could. I've read the manual, searched here, and google searched and am still having trouble getting going.
My new Summit showed up yesterday. I threw the stock batteries (NiMh) on the charger (206b) and charged them both up. I dropped the batteries in, plugged it all in, turned the Tx on, then turned the EVX-2 on. This is where my problem starts. The light goes green for a second on the truck, and if I release the power button, it flashes red (looks like it's alternating green/red) and the truck won't move. I have everything else, steering, shifting, etc, just no forward/reverse. I've tried reprogramming the Tx (TQi) back to the factory settings (although I don't think I changed anything) and tried resetting the profile based on the steps in the manual but it always comes back to the EVX-2 flashing red and the truck not moving. I did get it moving earlier this morning, went about 20' then shut off. It was acting up prior to this and continues to act up.
The transmitter/receiver are both solid green, just the EVX-2 that's flashing. And like I said, it looks like it's alternating red/green but I didn't see anything in the manual for that combination so I'm assuming that it should just be thought of as being flashing red.
Help please! Me and my 4yo want to go play!
