need some help, power loss and fast red light
ok, i sunk my boat about 4 days ago, i oild everything and let it dry out, now when i try to run it, it takes off fine but after about 5 sec, it drops to limp mode and i get a fast red blinking light on the receiver. iv searched but couldnt find what i was looking for.
The fast blinking red led on the receiver usually indicates an over temp issue, but the new version does not have the motor temp sensor. So I think you may have a defective receiver.... If you have another traxxas receiver from another truck/car you might try one to see if that helps.
Check the motor bearings, strut, flexshaft etc for free movement.
ok....but it a bowl of rice for a day and everything is back to working. anyone have any good ideas on how to flush the water lines after a salt water run???
Get a sqeezy bottle or a bottle with a hand pump on and fill with clean water, then take off the silicone tubeing off your rudder put it on the end of your spout on your bottle and pump away.
