My advise is to grab hold of your wallet and find a cheaper hobby..


Good luck and welcome to the most addictive hobby on the planet.

PS, Post in the car section and see what kind of answers you get from the folks on that forum.

Just get you something like a t-maxx or a Savage X highly recommend the savage x very durable and they take a beating.

What you need to focus on is what you are going to be doing with the car. If you wanting to go off road bash it and run it alot. Go with a Savage X. If you just doing it for fun not to race but just run go with something that can be off road or onroad like a t-maxx or savage.

Out of everyone who has bought a savage from my store i have never had a person dissatisfied with the savage x they bought.

First off, locate and join a local RC club. You will find a lot of good information and most clubs go over board in helping a newcomer get into the hobby. It will also save you a lot of money in the long run as it will prevent a lot of poor choices on your part when checking out equipment and planes. Google AMA to find a list of clubs in your area.

Throttle problems? No, it is the fact that you need to reverse the throttle on the Futaba transmitter. Futaba is just the opposite of most other brands on which way the throttle need to be for most ESC's. Just flip the reversing switch on channel 3 on your Futaba transmitter to REV. It is most probably on NOR when you get full throttle at low stick.
