Default Volcano exp brushless buggy

I just received my new volcano and it seems omhave intermittent acceleration when going forward only. I'm new to rc cars so be as simple as possible in any remedy! Thanks so much and I hope to learn a lot from you guys!

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

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?

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.
