    This is odd...

    Hi everyone,

    New member here with aproblem I simply cannotfind a solution too.

    I just recently bought a 1/8 RedCat Rockslide.

    I charged the battery for thesecond time only today, Itook it out and the dam steering was reversed!!
    The steering is set to'normal', however it is steering as if it were reversed. Very odd and I would like
    a solution or any theorys please.
    Yesterday it was fine.It was set to 'normal' and it was steering the correct way, the same way as the wheel was turned.
    But today, it is opposed. Strange.

    Thanks for any help it's bugging me

    RE: This is odd...

    Silly question but was the body turned around on the frame? 

    I can't imagine it just changing direction on its own, but I would check the radio settings and verify that everything is as it should be.

    If you look at he LCD readout on the side of the controller, the image of the crawler should indicate which is front and back.  The front should always be toward the top of the radio.  Thus, when you select front steer, the front servo should turn.  I've found it does take some tweaking to get the servos to line up accordingly.


    Good luck,

    Yes, as mentioned, it was fine yesterday. It has simply reversed itself somehow.
    It is steering left, as I turn the control right.
    It is steering right, as I turn the control left.
    And it is set to normal - not reverse.
    It may be hard to believe, but this is how it is.

    Any other ideas??

    the 4 wheel steering button on the remote, do you use that?

    is the body on right?

    Try reversing the servo function on the radio.

    Yeah everything is normal. Except the wheels turn in REVERSE and the steering switch is on NORMAL.
    Very odd. Runs fine with steering reversed, but it shouldn't be like that

    you may have hit the servo reverse switch by mistake, some rc's run correct in normal and some in reverse, just depends on the servo wiring but if its working fine in reverse setting then dont worry about it.

    Thanks, yeah running fine in reverse. Guess it'll just have to be.
    Just odd that normal was normal the first time I used it.
    But if running it reversed works, so be it.
