Unplugged and Stumped
I unplugged my speed control from the receiver and motor and I don’t know how they go back in. The motor wires have colors on them but the speed control wires don’t. Help!
We’ll assume you lost the manual, which is the first place to look for the answer. For the receiver, there are a few ways to tell which way the plug goes. First, let’s get it into the right port: the speed control belongs in the “channel 2” opening. Next, let’s orient the plug the right way. If the plug has a fin on one side, it only goes in one way — problem solved. If the plug doesn’t have a fin, just look at the wires and install the plug so the white wire is next to the slot in the receiver where the plug’s fin would go, if it had one.
As for the motor wires, just plug them in and power up your car. If the motor runs in reverse instead of forward, all you need to do is switch the positions of any two of the wires.
Receiver plugs are always installed so the white wire faces the slot in the receiver’s plug opening.
Which wire? If the motor runs in reverse, just switch two of the wires.
