Default RC Car Interference Run-away

My problem with my new Tamiya TT-01 Electric On-Road car is that when its gets about 20 feet away from me, I do not have control of it any more. It tends to go on its own and runs into something. How do I fix this so this won't happen? Thanks, Sam

20 Feet? Are both the batteries in the radio and the receiver fully charged? Are the connections well secured? Is someone playing games with you and running on the same frequency? Have you tried a different set of crystals?

Hey Tigger N. Bennie, Thanks for the tips, I put brand new fresh batteries in my controler and now there is no more interference. It worked perfect. Thanks for all the help and awsome paint job on your car! Thanks again, Sam Ringstad

Hi!

Check that the filtering capacitors on your motor are actually in place and not shorted. They used to look like little brown disks but I am not sure if people use the ceramics still (I no longer use electric). Basically these little components filter the high frequency radio noise that the sparking of your commutator produces. This broad spectrum hash will easily drown out your radio at 20'.

Hope that this helps.

Richard.
