    Unhappy Traxxas TQ 2.4Ghz Issue

    Hi ya guys

    I am in need of some help..

    I have recently come to acquire a TL-01 and some other bits,. I had no TX/RX to test the car with so i took the TQ 2.4 out of the summit to test it with .. all worked okish apart from the steering was reversed which i wasnt to fussed about as it wasnt going anywhere..

    went to put it all back in the summit, NO here is my issues..
    1:NO responce at all from the steering,
    2: no throttle or brake control..

    Tried resetting it all. still no luck..
    re-calibration NOthing ..

    seems like the RX has forgotten about the ESC and the steering servo's

    I rebind it still nothing.. running out of options here .
    Please help me out if u can guys as i am getting rather miffed off to say the least with this thing..

    i have a bash to go on the 9th.. carnt go if i have no car to go with ..

    What controller do you have?
    ALL Traxxas controllers have TQ in the name...
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    I would unplug all but the ESC on the RX and then relink the RX to the TX. It's worth a shot.

    Any chance that the Rx got damp?

    thanks for the advice there chap.. that was already tried.. i have tried the RX on another leccy .. I am getting the same result, couldnt even calibrate it on the other car either.. the other esc was a Traxxas 2.5lx, which i know works fine so i do think the RX is damaged some how weird really

    Guttered but another one is on order,, this time once its in the summit i aint removing it for any thing ..

    Hey jimmie, No mate the RX wasnt damp in anyway ... i think looking back at what I did, I think i may have shorted it some how. the ESC which was a Losi miro one, i dont think could handle 8.4v going through it.. i didnt have a 6v hump pack at the time when i was testing things...i know it wasnt linked up incorrect. Losi esc was on chan 2, steering was on chan 1.. the 8.4nimha was plugged onto the esc.. which i know is correct... My bad justment, assuming the losi esc could handle a 8.4v rocket pak Oh well lesson learnt the hard way as pernormal.. LOL
