Last night I finally decided to dive in and pick up a traxxas slash 4x4. Let the battery charge overnight and this morning I'm ready to roll. However, I have been struggling for 2 hours now to get the darned thing to work.
I've read ever manual and walkthrough I can find, but I simply cannot get my transmitter to connect to the receiver. I have the TQi transmitter and the VXL-3s receiver.
If I turn on the transmitter then press the receiver button, it is solid red, which I understand is normal for having the low voltage detection turned off. However, no response from transmitter controls.
I've tried to rebind them, I've held the receiver button until it flashes to set the throttle limits, but it doesn't flash again when I pull full throttle.
I'm thinking there's a throttle trim that's off and this is some safety mode, but I can't figure out how to zero out the throttle trim.
I notice that there is a light on the ESC, but also one on what I believe is the receiver beside it. That light is always red and I wonder if that means there's no transmitter bound to it.
Please help this frustrated new RCer!
