ever here of crystals going bad?
ok so I bought a 2 pack of radio crystals awhile back. I only needed 1 for an extra receiver so I left the other one in the bag. Yesterday I received a new radio/receiver set off ebay from a new Traxxas teardown. I removed the factory green crystal from the Traxxas receiver and installed my spare brown crystal to match my current radio. There was no response from the receiver. At first I thought the receiver must be no good. So then I put the original green crystal back in the receiver and removed the green crystal from the Traxxas radio and installed it in my current radio. The receiver responded properly. I put the original brown crystal back in my current radio and tried it with my other cars that run the same crystal and they all responded, so it seems like the new crystal I had in my parts box just isn't working. Has anyone heard of crystals going bad or just not working or am I not seeing something here?
