    RE: Volcano exp brushless buggy

    Is your transmitter glitching? Is the brushless motor simply cogging?

    RE: Volcano exp brushless buggy

    I'm not real sure. I had heard the battery needs a good 24hr charging and I didn't give it near that time. Do you think if I rebinded it to the controller again that that might help?

    RE: Volcano exp brushless buggy

    Sounds to me like it's a battery issue. If the battery isn't fully charged the car will accelerate intermittently. I experienced this with my Tornado before, after I let the battery sit for some time without being charged. The chargers RedCat provides take awhile to fully charge the battery. Give it a nice charge and see what happens.

    Good luck,

    Joe

    I would charge the battery fully first, then if that doesn't work try rebinding it.
