Redcat rampage 1/5 electric takes off at random


Hi guys. I just entered the world of the RC (this friday) ) welcome to me! I couldn't get it set up at first (even though I was thinking I'm pretty tech savy) but anyways, today is Monday and I called redcat and they helped me adj the sterling wheel and the truck together ($900) well anyways... Today is the first day I been using it, and first couple hours I was having time of my life (24y/o guy) and when I got home I had nephews over and they were excited to see the truck and I started showing it to them and all of the sudden my truck took off like crazy!! It went right pass me (this thing goes 60 mph) and hit the table. Good no one was there, so anyways... I look it over and didn't see anything abnormal with it I took it to the park, and after 5 min it did it again... This time it went far far away, while it was driving away I turned off my remote which made it stop and before I could walk to it it took off again and this time it got scratched and stuff. Anyways I been surfing Internet for the couple last hours and found few ppl telling that battery might cause this issue... I use 2.7hgz I think... Or 2.4? Well it's a decimal. It's in the garage /: anyways... I have brand new batteries installed in remote on friday and only pretty much drove once, and RC has fully charged ones... Anyone came across this???

Hi thank you for reply. I have reached to company today and they have stated its bad controller. So if anyone has had similar issues. Hopefully that will help.
