Mino Rio servo backwards
I just received another mini rio so my son and I can race together.
I tested the boat today and the servo is backwards, right is left and left is right.
No reversing on the Tx. that's the only thing wrong with it. This was a s&d sale so no returns. thanks

Not familiar with the boat or its extras, but some transmitters have the reversing switches hidden inside the battery compartment rather than on the front panel. It is also possible in some where you can get into the TX case to see the wiring to the control pot on the steering stick. To reverse, its just a case of crossing over the wires on the two outer tags. Of course, a lot of equipment is designed to be assembled, rather than taken apart and reassembled.
There have been other threads where a servo needed to be modified to reverse its action, one of the answers was to strip it, reverse connections to the motor AND reverse the two outer wires on the position sensing pot.

not any more
mfr02. thank you, thank you, thank you. Did what you said, I swapped the red and black wires and that did the trick, I'm in business now. The only hard part was taking the case apart. You made my day.....Ed
