    Traxxas 6518 RX - speedo is pegged to max

    on the dashboard, the speedo is pegged to the Max.

    I updated the firmware, and still the same, the RPM, temp & voltage all work.

    Is there something wrong with the RX or ?

    This is the second RX to do this to me, the first one also drained power from the battery super fast.

    If I hook everything up to my other RX in my XO-1 I have no problems.

    I have had similar issue with temp sensor. Works fine with a different receiver. Tried updating firmware deleting and binding model again with no luck. I have chalked it up to a bad receiver.

    Ok more info

    When you select a custom model or nitro power, it wants to use GPS for a speed signal - therefore speedo is pegged - why not 0????????

    If you change it to a electric model, all good.

    So the first Rx was bad, the second is good, and will bring the 3rd rx to the LHS since I will be keeping the 3rd.

    Hey if you still have the receiver, you might be able to fix it. I had a similar problem. http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...mp-and-voltage
