Default ...velenion troubles...

...I was out driving my slash when it started to chatter on start up. Then, when I put in a new battery, ...nothing. I had to reprogram and match my RX/TX with the ESC. I got it to work, but now I have no reverse. Any ideas? Thanx.

...no, I tried all modes to see, with no reverse in ANY setting. Still chatters and goes dead, no steering or throttle. By the time I get over to the car, it starts to work again, with no reverse.

Sounds like a dead battery, what's the voltage on it?  what kind of battery?

The problem is the ESCit happened to my Mamba you'll need to send it in if it is still under warranty. Since you bough t a Novak hook up the motor to that ESCand see if it runs to be sure it is the ESC though.

...the unit is out of warranty. I think it is only 30 days. I am like 45 out, but I will send it in and hope for the best. I spent good money on this system, and hope to get a bit more out of it. Thanx everyone.
