I just finished building a rustler roller I purchased. I'll post a build thread after I get this problem with the throttle fixed.
My problem is that I installed a Traxxas #6518 5 channel receiver, with a Traxxas #6513 TQi Link 2 channel 2.4 GHz Transmitter, an HPI Flux Vapor Pro ESC (built by Castle), Flux Vektor 4000kv motor and Hitec 7975 Coreless servo. That's the electronics that I'm running. The problem arises when I turn on the esc and radio, and for whatever reason, the steering wheel on the Traxxas radio, actually is acting as both the throttle and steering for the rustler? If I turn the wheel clockwise, the tires go forward, and if I turn the wheel counter clockwise, the wheels reverse. The wheels also turn as the tires move.
The actual trigger/throttle on the radio doesn't seem to do anything. I linked the Rx and Tx as per Traxxas recommendations, and I even tried another Traxxas 2.4 GHz Link #6518 receiver, and it still does the same thing. I unplugged the steering servo, and just left the esc plugged in the receiver, and the throttle still only operates with the radio's wheel, not the trigger, as it should. I have the connectors all plugged into the correct channels. Channel 1 for the servo, Channel 2 for the esc, and Channel 3 for the esc fan.
Is this an issue with the Traxxas radio? I've never had a RC vehicle's throttle, be controlled by the steering wheel? Does anybody have any suggestions what the problem is? Please, any suggestions would definitely help.
Thanks very much
