Hi,

I have a MA-010 with 2.4Ghz board with a KT-18 transmistter.

It is glitching and doing a strange thing, Once you power the car on it goes really hard for for a couple of min, then suddenly it slows down to a stop with all loss of power, the strange thing is the steering keeps on working fine. After waiting a while the car is back to life again, then it all happens again. Is it the KT-18 or the board ??

Does any one here have any knowledge about this problem and any ideas on how to correct it ?

This is my setup :

You see the square yellow thing attached to the motor lead (UF135)... It is like a fuse, and when the motor draws too much amperage, it shuts down. It basically makes all of the fets that you have on the board useless. If you remove it, you wont have the shutdown, and you will have more power/speed.

Thanks for your advice, and knowledge !! - It worked a treat, full power untill batterys totally drained even with a 12 stack of 8858 fets !!!!
