    Receiver/ servo problems

    Alright here's a good on for you guys. Can you fry or lose a channel on a receiver. I had my servo in n it was working fine. I did some slow crawling over my 3.3's tire n left it in that position for a while n forgot to turn it off. When I came back I had no steering input. Oh great fried brand new 5085. Nope took it to lhs they put it in a slash it worked fine I came home put in merv n nothing. Put in my 3.3 n worked fine. Put back in merv n nothIng. Changed controllers, still nothing. Mean while the motor works fine and the receiver is lit green. ??????***. The receiver has other channels, can I make one of these my steering? Thanks for the help guys.

    Both channel 1 slots are burned out?

    You can make another channel be controlled with the steering wheel...
    but it will take some pretty decent soldering skills.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    You would basically be wiring channel 3 to the steering wheel... but this will also mean that channel 3 for your 3.3 would be operated with the steering wheel.

    It might be time to use Traxxas' lifetime replacement program...

    With what it's worth in down time I guess I'll be hitting up the lhs. Thanx Jimmie. I need three to be reverse for 3.3.

    See if the LHS will do a swap??
