Default WLtoys 12428 problem

Hi gyes. Glad to meet you here. I am new member and I would like to ask your help.
I own such a car one year now and suddenly I have a problem. Reverse control is completely lost and also forward control "stuck" sometimes, therefor I have to move trigger to reverse direction to stop the car running. Do you have any idea where may be the problem, car or remote controller? Where to begin searching from? I am noob, you know..
Regards. Thanks

The electronics on WLToys vehicles are junk. The ESC (electronic speed control), servo driver and receiver are all one unit. If one function goes out, you have to replace the whole thing. Likewise, the transmitter is not very reliable. So, most owners buy a new transmitter and reciver, a 3-wire servo and a brushed ESC - all separate components.
Components most often used can be found here:

Thank you so much for information. You know, my own car I don't really know what origin is, JJRC, WLtoys or Feiyue (actually it is this one: h ttp s://www.aliexpress.com/item/32949434488.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27424c4d2z3 A9d ) but I guess components are the same. For the moment (because of the kids pressing) I will try replace the stock electronic system with a new one and later to change with that "triple" you propose. I also have to notice that very interesting and helpful "rcgroups.com" link.
Thank you again.
George

When I try to put that link into a search engine, it just goes to AliExpress. Some parts may be used by multiple vehicles, but many are for the specific one you have. The best thing to do, so you don’t waste money is to go by the part numbers in the owner’s manual. If you don’t have a manual, maybe a picture would help identify what you have

Yes, you are right, I gave you the link of my private purchase, therefor you can not open that. Anyway, after research in the owner's manual I realized that all parts begin as FY-, so it is Feiyue and that way I found out the number of the stock receiver. Thank you for all.

P.S. I apologize for my English level. I am sure it is not the best

So, you are saying that you do NOT have a WLToys 12428, but a Feiyue 03? I'm glad you got that straightened out or would have been buying parts that would not work. I hope everything works out for you.

Yes, that is right. It is a Feiyue and looking the pictures around the Web it is FY-03 as you said. You know, nowhere on the box, neither in the manual is mentioned Feiyue, therefor I thought it is WLtoys. Maybe it is a copy of the original Feiyue 03, who knows but I don't care, worked fine for one and half year. I resend you the link again:
h t tps://www.aliexpress.com/item/32949434488.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27424c4dbSb lYy

or the moment I will disassemble vehicle to inspect for broken or disconnected cables to be sure it is ok (or not) and after that will order the new receiver. By the way, in case of receiver's replacement (FY-RX01), is it necessary after installation to make any adjustements to pair receiver's frequency with the remote controller's transmition or is it "plug'n play" ??
Thanks
George, Greece

You will have to rebind the new receiver to your transmitter. It should be in the owner’s manual.

In the owner's manual there is no refer about binding receiver/transmitter. Whether I buy that, I quess that will be possible.
Thanks

In my manual, it says:

How To Code
1. Turn on the remote controller, and the power light on the controller will flash red and green. Then turn on the model car, and the light on the receiver will flash.
2. Turn the steering wheel on the remote controller until the power light on the controller turns green, and the light on the receiver stops flashing, which means they are coded.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the useful information. By the way, what brand is your vehicle which in the owner's manual is mentioned this information? WLtoys?

I have a WLToys 12428, just like you do. It's probably 3 years old now. Mine is very extensive modified mostly because of the inexpensive parts it is made with.

Great. Mine is made with cheap parts too, I guess, especially if that's a copy of the original Feiyue. Next days I will order receiver from China and come back here after replacement.
Thanks a lot.

Receiver arrived. After replacement device is "back in life" again.. Did not need to bind receiver/transmitter.
Thanks
