Question
RC Car Twitching and driving in reverse

Hey guys, ive just gotten my old rc car out of the cupboard and switched it on, with a fully charged battery, only to notice accelerate would reverse the car, and reverse would accelerate it.

Also the car from time to time will stop and make beeping noises and start to twitch? Could anyone help me in this field. Ive gotten a broken transmitter antenna, with a small chip!

Thanks Michael

Broken antenna could and possibly is the reason behind you're glitches.

As for the Rc running in reverse, it could couple of things. #1 check motor wire leads if they have been reversed. and #2 check servo reversing switches.

I mostly shop at my LHS, most of my online purchases are for small things and are usualy with major online vendors. I am not in a position to recommend to you what you are looking for.
