So I was running the maxx up and down the road trying to tune and all of a sudden the truck grew a mind of its own and at the same distance as the other passes, it turned and rammed into a curb. Nothing got damaged or broken and it was still running when I finally caught up to it, although it did nail that curb pretty hard!
Question is, why did this happen? I did replace the antenna tube the other day when it broke in half but when I inspected the wire inside the tube, there was no damage to it. Other thing is, do you slowly lose range as your transmitter batteries get weaker?? Would it make a difference to lengthen the wire? The batteries are a bit old now but seem to be good still. I am running the older TQ3 radio, and no I am not really interested in upgrading the radio just yet.....not til the new year anyways.
Forgot to mention that the rx battery was fully charged too.
