Default New and Needing Help!

So I recently purchased a Red Cat Volcano 18 for my daughter for Christmas. We drove it around in the back yard and everything was great!

I charged the battery and now the vehicle will not work. The ESC/Receiver will flash 3 times and then just shut off. Also when I turn on the switch to turn on the ESC/Receiver, the wheels will always turn to the right.

I've tried looking at the manual to see what the cause of this might be. All the manual would tell me is to check ESC manual and reset.

If anyone could help me with this?

Much greatly appreciated!

The receiver should have a solid LED when turned on. The flashing LED is either because of low voltage or overheating I do believe. The tires turning to one side is sometimes a sign of the fail-safe kicking in when the receiver loses signal from the transmitter.

First things first; making sure the battery pack (for the truck) is fully charged, I would try to re-bind the transmitter/receiver.
