Since my last post I have had couple of frustrating track visits.
Initially I really struggled to get the engine tuned correctly, but eventually I seemed to get it right.
The next visit was less successful however. I would accelerate down the straight, brake and turn into the corner and then be unable to accelerate out of the corner. I press the throttle and there is no response until I switch off the radio and switch it on again. Then it works until I brake again and everything stops working again.
I have previously posted about a delay I experienced after braking and the throttle activating, this is is the same issue - just worse now!
Upon further investigation, I have discovered that this is all tied into the fail safe mechanism! For some reason when I brake for over a second the fail safe activates. I can recreate the problem with the engine off as well. I apply brakes and after a second the servo freezes for about 2 seconds then I can accelerate again. You can actually see the LED on the receiver flash when the fail safe activates.
Anyone have any ideas as to how to fix this? I have tried to recalibrate the fail safe but all it changes is the position of the fail safe (brake / neutral ) not the point at which it actually activates.
Seriously annoying! Any help would be appreciated. Just wish I could turn the fail safe off completely!
