1) Straight away I had to completely turn the steering trim to complete lock just to get the car to go straight.
Now the car can turn really well one way and not well at all the other way.
How do I fix this trim problem?
2) The controller LED is constantly flashing green. The doco says..."Flashing fast green (0.1 sec on / 0.15 sec off)=Throttle Trim Seek Mode - Turn the Multi Function knob right or left until the LED stops flashing.
Despite turning the Multi Function knob slowly both ways many times, nothing I do stops the LED flashing green.
3) The car is intermittantly losing contact with the transmitter. The receiver LED goes red. The batteries have plently of charage - it displayed the same behaviour 30 seconds in to a fresh charge.
Great car, but with all these problems less than an hour in, I am fearing I might have to take it back.
you might have to loosen the horns on the steering servo, turn on the radio, and the truck, and with the steering trim centered, put the horns back on with the wheels in a more in line position. as for problem 2... ive never had that before...
Sounds like a real easy fix.Mine veered off a little.Just a swist of the trim and I was right on.I love mine.Just becareful driving them.Im on my second bulkhead replacement.I dont remember hitting anything all that hard both go arounds.Iv got a 5s set running.I drag race mine up and down my street.Good luck with yours.I look foward to fixing mine this weekend.
ok..problem 2 and 3 fixed with fresh batteries in the controller. phew.
not sure that a flashing green light is indicitive of low AA's though.
So is the only way to re-centre my steering so the trim is centred to actually take tools to the car?
yes, aligning the servos will be the easiest most reliable way to do it
