Compatible Aftermarket Radio for Revo's Opti-Drive

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi guys,
Need some help here. I tried to install a JR radio system (XS3 + RS310) on my Revo. My problem is that the Opti-Drive doesnt want my JR. I can steer, but throttle, brake and shifter won't respond. Did anybody encounter the same problem? How do I fix this? Is it the radio? I just don't like the TQ3.

Thanks in advance,

That radio should work fine. Recheck that you have the correct servos plugged in the proper channel and the receiver battery is charged. The opti-drive only controls the shift servo so I am thinking you have something plugged in wrong.

Might help

Why does my throttle (or other specific control surface) not respond today when I had full control yesterday? Return to Top
This can happen for several reasons. To fix:
A. Check that the travel adjust is not set at zero or low value.

B. Try switching to another model memory that hasn't been programmed and re-check to see if control has returned.

C. Check to see if servo is properly connected and/or try another servo.
