The Next Series of Videos will be Starting, running and Breaking In the Motor.

We'll do that as soon as Schedules and Weather Permits, (which should be Pretty Soon)

We left ONE thing out that we might have to Cover......

How to set up the Carb (The Idle Thing that a lot of New Folks have Trouble with,).

We DID cover Carb/Brake/Linkage in Another Video,,,,,but I think it should be in THIS Series too.....

one thing I would like to mention....u said in the video that if your reciever batteries become weak with a failsafe you could still have a runaway....now I know my venom failsafes will trigger when the batteries become low applying the brakes....I dont know if ofna or any other failsafes do this but I know venom does..I just tested it with five battery packs...I ran them all the way down were the venom failsafe triggered my brakes and nothing else worked..

would like to know if other failsafes had this feature

Randy....

Thanks for Pointing that Out......

You are Right....Failsafes DO work when your Receiver Batteries are Low, (at least,they Should...).

When we were shooting that Video,,,,I Had it in my Mind to talk about what would happen if a Battery were to Pop Out of the Receiver Brick.....

In THAT case, the Failsafe would be useless.....I got my Dialog Mixed Up.....

That's what Happens when I try to Talk and Chew Gum at the same Time...

Thats why I like to run with velcro or elastic bands on to keep the batts tight.
