Hey guys, my mcx started glitching today. The rx loses the tx signal randomly. I looked it up and apparently it's either a cracked main board or a main motor. I think it's the motor because the lower motor doesnt spin as well as the upper. Any ideas?

If the board seems OK, try replacing the motor. Make sure nothing is binding or rubbing before you do.

That is good! I did it once, but my friends who watch my channel were complaining about my ads, but with $30 a month I could buy more stuff! How exactly do you do it?

Well first of all you get paid every $100, and the IRS takes out 18% so you end up with about $82.... I have yet to reach $100 and find a check in my mail, hopefully in a few months I do it by advertising, both on RCG and with Google Adwords. I also have an R/C website that I'm linking to in all of my videos now, which has small ads on the sides.

Ok. Cool! I think ill do that. I do kinda have a website, but it needs to be improved. I'll work on that. They send you payment by cheque? And how do you advertise on rcgroups? Don't u have to be a sponsor?
