    hows the wiring from the esc to the motor? should look like this http://images.search.yahoo.com/image...mb=OV2jl3EHVOt

    if that doesn't work, try calibrating it again. look at page 14

    I had a heck of a time trying to get it straightened out. I would get it switched everything was fine til I shut it off. Turn it back on and it was backwards again. I must of did this 10 times !!! I did know I had 3 bars of battery life in my transmitter but didn't think it was such an issue. But just to rule things out I put new batteries in it and went through all the steps to switch it again. Ever since I put new batteries in it .. it has never acted up again. Now whenever it doesn't show all the bars on my ipod it gets new batteries. WEIRD is all I can say

    One thing I have to ask.... why is it even possible to switch foreward to backward or left to right ?? It makes no sense to me at all. I know one thing for sure... It can make things difficult once in a while.

    well anything that has todo with electrical I guess you have to assume theres always the possibility for some kind of glitch to happen .. My take on why you can switch from forward to reverse would be so that lets say you you did a custom build and swapped the motor and mounted it oppisite where its mounted now , you his throttle it would go in reverse change a couple wires and there you go ,

    instead of switching wires on the esc which is easy enough todo you I think you can reverse the throttle input from the remote without changing anywires also ..

    BTW OP: since this is a kid friendly site , watch out when trying to use a swear word coded or as some call it ebonix . the mods are very touchy in the behind when it comes to this sort of things to protect the kids virgin eyes and when they catch it you will get violations at your account if they didnt allready warn you .
