Default RE: No Control

Are you getting a radio glitch (intermittent) or loosing control all together? First thing to look at is that you do not have any servo, antenna or battery wires wrapped around one another. That is one of the biggest causes of radio problems. Next thing is to make sure you have good connections and also that no wires were pinched when you put the radio cover back on. If this does not help let me know what you are loosing control over ( what function Throttle or steering and also does the function start to work again if you move closer or what do you have to do to get it working again)
