Throttle sticks...

Once in a while, my throttle sticks on my f1 mini-z. Sometimes the throttle is a little jumpy or inconsistent. I have not been able to really run it at full throttle because I have been using it indoors in a small space, so now major crashes I have tried to trim the throttle on the controller, but that does not seem to work. Any suggestions or feedback?

sticks on? sticks off? both? --- off would more than likely be a lose wire some were... issues with the motor... or fets.

stuck on... even when u let go of trigger, could be a bad TX.. try another TX just to make sure... maybe the throttle pot in the tx is dirty/bad...

Draconious, it seems to stick on most of the time, but a little of both. I am new at this, so can you interpret what TX and throttle pot means and what a bad FET is? thanks.

a tx= transmitter a RX= receiver

the throttle pot, is basically a sensor probably somewhere near the trigger in your transmitter, the pot would be inside the tx. sorry i dont know what it looks like

a bad fet, can mean many things, it can mean that it is fried, then you will need to send your board away to someone like drac and get it replaced, if you do have a bad fet, you will have to get it replaced......
