Today while driving, my EVX-2 just turned off. No green or red or flashing LED, just off. i could turn it right back on, but then after driving a minute or so, it would turn off. It did this about 7 times, so i packed it in.
Great truck and Traxxas will flip my EVX-2 for $20, but i would like to know if anyone else can relate and what the cause was.
Sticky power button, loose battery connection or solder joint, bad juju?...
Keeping the Mods busy is my specialty...
Button clicks up and down nicely, plus a sticky button would send it into program mode. Checked all the connectors. Won't accept "bad juju."Originally Posted by ArmyofDarkness
Think'in about crack'in open the ESC to check it out.
The FIRST thing to ALWAYS check on EVX-2s acting up is bad servos! Touch those big steering servos and see if one is HOT .... or try unplugging one at a time and see how it reacts. Other smaller servos are the next to check.
I make tap adapters and power harnesses.
i'll check the servos. i also just read in the manual to turn on the rx within 20 seconds of turning on the tx. Is the 20 second thing a must? It's the 2.4 with link.
