Vehicle Lost Control !

Hey guys have a problem,

Basically like 5 months ago I was in the park using my 1/5 scale buggy and suddenly the buggy just shot out of my hand at full speed luckily i reacted quickly and applied the brake on the transmitter which stopped it. Now I want to know why this happened so basically whenever I switch on my transmitter the vehicles throttle doesn't stay in neutral position put goes into acceleration and the vehicle only reacts when I apply the brakes but when i apply the acceleration it won't go. Also the steering is really glitchy sometimes the front wheels turn and sometimes they not.

So im wondering whats the issue I have on my hands

Yuu have bad servos or a complete bad radio system. Buy a new radio system with large scale servos. RTR really means ready to replace.

Does it glitch all the time, or only when the engine is running?

What radio are you using? Might need to re-calibrate neutral position.

First I'd rebind radio if a 2.4 system, see if that helps the intermittent signal issue. If that helps then check if somehow the throttle channel got reversed. I have seen it happen before.

Its really strange sometimes the fronts wheels turn left and right when i use the transmitter but they move really glitchy. Also the throttle goes to max whenever i turn on the transmitter and that causes the buggy to fly off road. Dont know what this is as im a total noob when it comes to RC.

Check the spark plug. Make sure you're using a resistor type? If that checks out trash the radio system and get a new one. RTR really means ready to replace.

your first step is to read and give us answers to the questions asked . remember we are blind we cant see or hear it so you must give us as much information as possable otherwise we are all just stabbing into the wind ..

Let's go back to simple..... Is the throttle channel reversed?
