ESC works great!!!! However I'm having some type of interference with my 2.4 ghz Fly Sky. It use to not drop out after 200 yards. Wonders if i should move receiver to back of boat and maybe run part of antenna out of top and seal with silicone. Any thoughts?

Try placing it to the back of the boat first and loop the antenna the best you can, away from the esc. If that doesn't work, do a quick dry test by running it out the water dump hole.

What does looping the antenna mean? Circular rotations

Hi!

Yesterday i purchased a FT009 to my son, during the first ride everything was working fine, big waves but the self-righting worked as intended.

Recharged the battery and during the second run the self-rightning doesn't seem to work, I'll try to give full reverse and full forward but it does not turn around.

I have opened the boat and looked at the solder joints but they seem to be fine.

Does anyone have any idea of what could be wrong? Am I doing something wrong? During the first run when the self-rightning worked fine i think it turn around automatically, I was just pulling full throttle forward the whole time, maybe the waves helped the boat to turn around

UPDATE: I have now done some testings and it looks like if the battery runs low there is not enough power for the self-rightning to work.
