Default Bought a used Flux. Having major issues. :(

As the heading says I just bought a used Flux ( I think it's a 2014 ).

I'm having big issues with the ESC or reciever.

The problem is that the truck suddenly decides to go off by itself. If I give it just a little bit throttle, I can release the throttle, but the truck keeps moving. If I get the truck to stop without using the brakes ( rolling stop ) it can suddenly start driving again by itself.

The same goes for reverse. except then it keeps going in reverse. I can't trust this car. Not taking the risk of a 1/8 brushless monster going full throttle while I'm not paying attention. So I guess I won't be using this truck untill I figure this out.

I already tried calibrating the ESC several times without any improvement. I also went through the manual setup of the ESC and set everything back to default.

Tried this without the body on, and I can see the ESC blinking orange when it suddenly decides to go off by itself, so either it's getting a signal from the reciever or its giving itself a false signal.

Any tips on whats wrong? Just hope I don't have to pay up for a new ESC

Sounds much more likely to be a RX/reception problem than an ESC problem. Any weirdness with your antenna setup? Using a decent radio?
