Nothing changed since yesterday. I don't get it. It was fine yesterday, horrible this evening. I tried it again a few minutes ago, and it's actually workable. I've got it on my RC car, so I took it out and drove it up/down the street for a few minutes before it started raining. It's not as good as it was yesterday, but much better than earlier today. What gives?!?!?!

BTW, that's an awesome looking truck!!

Ahhh looks like your TX is misbehaving and playing games with you Brian. THEY NEVER DO THAT TO ME!! I always let them know who's boss!
Tapping of the TX (2 min 50 sec)

Wow Stang, now I'm lost also. You've done everything I would of tried like moving the TX further then closer. Let me tell you a story about a 900tx I got from Super Circuits awhile back. It had some strang issues like yours and I would tap on the cover and it would change channels from 1 to 2 and sometimes caught between (side-band). Since the Super Circuits TX is the same as RV's 900tx I would suspect you got a bad one like I did. It took me a couple of weeks to finally give in and send it back for replacement which they did. Now no problems with the replacement and looking in at the PCB you can see it not as clean as a newer 2.4ghz TX. Mine had a date of 10/07 and the replacement is 12/07 if that helps because you never know if they had a bad run that month.

Gee, look at that. Mine was maufactured in 10/2007 also!

Hmm... It seems to be working better now. Have no idea why. Just 'cause I guess. This thing has more mood swings than my wife! (and she's pregnant too!)

I think I'm going to contact Vova, and see what he'll do about it. Thanks Crash. Looks like I got a bumm transmitter.

I also have another 900 TX/RX system on the way from rv since the price is right . Should be here in a couple of days and I can do the same test as you and see how it comes out if your still having issues . No hammer in my test though . BTW I have mostly Hitec servos and someday I'll start to upgrade .

Haha. Thanks guys. The problem is it's going to be difficult to get everybody in there. They will fit, but I'll have to fold down the back seat each time to let one of the kids into the third row. I imagine that's going to get old real quick. We're going to have two kids in car seats (brand new lol, and 19 months), and the two bigger ones (aka: the cat and dog - yes they fight all the time!) that are 6 and 9.

Hmm a ssstretched Toyota Yaris hatchback is what you need! They never have those pesky alignment problems and they have a rear hatch that pops open and dumps the pets with ease... err do they make that yet? I think they have a special on this week.. every Yaris comes with a Hello Kitty key chain!

I'll admit it...I have a Toyota Sienna minivan...all the coolness has now been sucked away from my persona.

On a positive note: I can put my 6' Telemaster in the back of the Sienna without taking the wing off with the back row folded down and the wing sticking between the middle row seats and the tail up in the air. I've gone to the flying field with the Telemaster (fully assembled), Mini Ultra Stick (fully assembled), Stryker, and all related RC and FPV gear stashed in the back, while still having available seats for me, my wife, and two kids.

Of course, gas prices just shot up again so a smaller car certainly would save some money in gas!

Well that is borderline coolness since it's a Mercedes product. But again... it's needs to be in a chop shop where they can stretch it out for you and your payload. BTW... cool mags!
