    Fried Servo!!

    iv barely had it for 24hours, barely 2 hrs driving it and the servo fried. normal driving no big wrecks at all, steering quit then smoke started coming out of the steering servo. throttle servo is fine. checked batteries with a voltage meter and they are fully charged. This has gotta be covered by the warrenty. Gunna call them monday morning and see what i gotta do to get a new servo. anyone ever have this happen so quick? its gotta be a lemon servo

    Ya, it only takes one small piece of metal dust or have a wire come off the circuit board and short out on the circuit board or the wire next to it. It happens some times, vibration from the engine or a bad solder as it goes through assembly could be a host of any reasons it shorted out.

    upgrade the servo bro, you can get a decent futaba for like $10. Most rtr vehicles have crappy electronics in them.

    ehroof is 100% right. pay attention to what you buy though...........the throttle is different than the steering servo

    Oh and on my distributor sheet one of the brands I sell now have FM 3 channel 10 model memory radios OEM[sm=75_75.gif]
