I have had my revo for a few weeks and yesterday I picked up a 2200 mah 2 cell lipo, I was playing with it in my living room last night and the thing went nuts for a few seconds, full throttle and I had no control. It finally tried to climb the walls and flipped over, i picked it up and it started acting normal again for a few seconds. I was still holding it and gave it some throttle and then it went full throttle and then full brake and stopped. The ESC was hot and so was the motor but It didnt feel extremely hot. The ESC is fast flashing a dim red light.
I could understand it shutting down if i was running it hard and wide open but my living room is tiny and has a huge Christmas tree in the middle of it. My son was running his 1/16th grave digger and I was running the revo, both of us were taking turns jumping a makeshift ramp so it was not being ran hard at all...
I read the manual and it says this may be stage 1 or stage 2 Thermal shutdown. I let it cool overnight and plugged the lipo back in and it is still flashing a dim red light and will not respond. I then tried the fully changer Nimh and had the same response.
What should I try?
