    It needs both channels for full functionality, indeed. Is there anything else plugging into the OrangeRX?

    Hi Sam

    Firstly have you tried adjusting the trims on the transmitter? I've had the wheel spinning at zero with a couple of bots & that has always fixed it (although admittedly not the cutting out).

    Secondly you could try swapping the esc through the various channels on the receiver. Hopefully it might only be damaged on the one channel & you could still use it this way.

    At my first event I had a AR610 in my FW, which failed the tech check, but they allowed me to compete in one fight provided I fixed it for the next match (we hadn't diagnosed the cause at the event & then got trashed so we had to pull out anyway). The point is, you could potentially use the AR610 at the event, but that will ultimately depend on if the tech checker feels safe about it on the day.

    I should have a spare Lemon Rx with me which you can borrow for the day if you need it. I'm fairly certain these are directly compatible with the Orange Rx so it should be a straight swap.

    Ocracoke - nothing else plugged in no, just the f2 on two channels.

    James - trimming stops the creep but I still get the motors cutting in and out. Swapping channels doesn't help.

    Al_ - that would be awesome, thanks! I'll drop you a pm later.

    Thanks again folks

    Tried that. Didn't help unfortunately; in fact most of the time the binding fails...

    Thanks

    At least we've managed to get the thing built and made it to the pub in Sherburn.
