This is exactly what my newest electric truck is doing. I thought it was an issue with the truck, but the transmitter takes 4 AAA batteries so now Iím thinking that might really be the issue. Thank you!

Its very obvious that flat batteries cause problems, Im very sure he is well aware of that.
But in saying that, with my 2.4ghz controllers my cars run fine even with the battery light flshing, only problem ive had is it stops working when ded flat, & i suspect the range was effected

JohnP2 I would bet that the problems that u were having were caused by the Receiver batteries not the transmitter batteries.
Strange things happen when there is a problem with the reveiver power sorce, on of my brushless cars with a externail BEC, it looses power to the BEC before the low voltage kicks in and restarts the reciver, the ESC just sucks all the power.

Default Battery Transmitter

Available battery power affects the range and possibly glitching or loss of connection.
