Slash 2wd esc red light
I'm new to this site and kinda new to hobby rc. My sons slash does not work. The esc blinks really fast red. The only thing that works is the steering, but the steering also makes the truck go forward and backwards. The battery is fully charged. It's a 6 cell 7.2v, but I have read you could use a 6 cell or 7. The transmitter light is green solid so no problem there. Any idea?
So if the steering is controlling the throttle, you may have the ESC plugged into channel 1 on the receiver, which is steering. Then, my guess is that the transmitter/ESC aren't seeing each other properly, resulting in the blinking red light. Check the receiver to make sure that channel 1 is the servo plug and channel 2 is the ESC.
Thanks. That was the problem.
