    Might need to stick it in a pile of rice. Helps dry it out faster.

    What happens when you put rice in a pan of water? It soaks up the water and expands. Ergo, put the damp electronics in a tub of rice and put a lid on it and the rice will absorb the moisture.

    Sticking the parts in an airing cupboard will work too, just to dry out an moisture trapped inside.

    Have you tried different batteries? I was having a similar problem with mine last night, turns out one of the tabs between the cells in one of my packs broke. It's just electrical taped back together tightly for now, but that's literally all it was!

    yep i tried 2 different batteries, same thing. so yours briefly flashed green for a sec, then went dark right? the red light on the receiver was always on? i can still hold my esc button to change to training mode as i can see the red light blink 3 times, but it just doesnt stay green after that.

    72 hrs of drying and still no luck. guess ill have to talk to traxxas support and hope if they can get me a new one

    dont know that but I e mailed them living in Denmark and they replied pretty fast.. reason I had two servos fried because the manual stated that they could be fed with more voltage than so, when binding the traxxas link radio..
    they send me adress and procedure so I could get a refund... good service also by e mail... they answered twice within 30 hours or so :-)
