Default Sumo control distance is now very short

I bought 2 of those 7 months ago, just recently one of those don't go far. Max distance is roughly 3 meters only.

I tried to use the other remote to see if it was the remote and no, it's really the car. What could have happened?

The antenna may have come unsoldered from the board. If you have soldering skills, I'd recommend trying to solder it back on.

Thanks, will look into it. I also thought of that but when I pulled gently on the wire that is the antenna, it looked like well in place.

I will look in the manual how to reach where it is soldered on the board.

Antenna looks fine so I guess it's the PCB. I'm in Canada and currently looking for the best price for this 24620 PCB. I will report once fixed.
