check your abc switch on the bottom to be sure your on the right frequency. This has happened a couple times on a couple of mine, where the switch got knocked off the setting that correlates to the controller.


I have a similar prpblem with my Pz III that maybe someone can post an idea. Often the same problem and the switch is OK. Sometimes I have to restart before I have any control or movement.

Have you thought maybe about checking that the crystals are the same in the transmitter and the insides of the tank?! Before you go changing any circuitry, you might like to think about checking to see if your transmitter is actually sending a signal and if the tank is transmitting a signal.

Pop in your spare board. If that doesn't work, try your spare transmitter. You do have spares don't you?

lol james. nice.

umm it could be the controller. seeing as it will turn on and off the tank but nothing more. i assume it could be just a bad connection. but it is a bit weird. I just upgraded my pershing to S&S and it was very limited on range. found out that there was a bad negative wire solder and thats what limited it so bad. maybe there is a bad solder?

its sounding like a bad board. your sure the battery is all charged up etc? if it is i think the board is bad. james might have hit the nail on the head here.
