    Another useless responce. Soon he will be off of here


    The wire off the reciver im saying because if it is shortened or is broke in a post this will lessen your range and could be why it was not working.

    could be your Tx or Rx.could also be loose screws on the metal chassis or loose motor screws.that would cause it glitch like that

    well you dont have a metal chassis if you are using the b4 frame. but anything metal to metal needs to be locked down tight or you will get the radio glitching

    try your transmitter with a different reciever.see what happens.then try your reciever with a different transmitter.that will pinpoint which half of the radio is bad.that is if the radio system is indeed the problem.

    that wont hurt the radio.it might do some damage to your ESC if it is not rated to handle the 7 cell pack.

    what did you try?which part of the radio caused the glitch?
