Default Bought kids pair of redcat Volcano S30

Will post pics when allowed. These are for my 2 daughters right now they are trying to learn to fly drones. Got them for 250 for both. They run good but I am switching out the electric start for pull starts and I broke the gear on the transmission on one of them some how. I am having some issues with the steering. The servos twice and it doesn't seem like they are allowing the truck to fully turn as the turns are real wide. Other than that they work

I recommend you sell those and get another brand, those come with lots of issues and headaches.

The steering expo is turned down in the remote, there should be steering trim and one more steering knob. Turn this other knob all the way clockwise to get full steering. I would strongly suggest sticking with the electric start, as it is much easier than pull start. Yes, they are cheap vehicles, but good to learn on. Having to do a lot of wrenching will teach you how to wrench on them. And that Redcat tranny is $15 as opposed to $50+ for a kyosho.
