Hi, New to the forums but I did some basic searches already for this puzzling radio/reciever problem. My Slash truck is about 3 yrs old and was working fine the first 2 yrs, after it sat a few months I charged it up and when I turned it on, the motor control worked fine but the steering servo just went full left an locked in place. I took it apart and cleaned all the contacts, but no change. Finally the steering servo stopped doing anything (No noise).
So I just went to the local RC car store (and track here in Tucson, its a big place), they sold me a new reciever after checking the servos by checking them out. When I got home I plugged it in correctly (I wrote down a diagram of the motor on channel one, bottom most pins, and steering on channel 2), and after it linked up (that took a while), the steering servo slewed into a lock again !
Before I bring it back to the store I thought I'd try the experts on this forum for thier collective wisdom on Traxxas issues similar to this.
Any advice and guidance is appreciated, my kids would like to see this thing working, as would I.
