Default rc controls backwards?

Well i finlly got my rustler back togeter with the mamba max kit. This is my first time ever tryig it because i bought it off some guy and when i bought it he gave my a cirrus digital 3fm controller. now when i hit what is supposed to be the gas it goes in reverse, whe i hit what is supposed to be reverse it go forwards, and when i turn it goes in the opposite direction i turned it. anyone have any ideas of why this might happen? thanks

flip your reverse switches for channel one and channel two on your controller
problem will then be fixed

Is your transmitter digital, with a screen, or does it have buttons and switches for trim and other things?

Your best bet is to find an owners manual and read up on the controls and servo reversing switches.
