IV. QUICK TIPS
1. When your vehicle starts to lose power, it may
lose functions or performance. It’s time for
fresh batteries.
2. Your vehicle’s running time may change
depending on your driving style.
3. Radio interference can effect your vehicle’s
performance. Interference can be caused
by other R/C vehicles running on the same
frequency, electrical wires, large buildings, CB
radios or other wireless gear. Try to stay away
from these!
4. Point your transmitter up - not down toward
your vehicle. If your vehicle gets too far away,
it won’t work properly.
5. Don’t drive your vehicle through water or
snow. If your vehicle does get wet, wipe it
with a towel and allow it to dry completely.
6. Don’t store your vehicle near heat or in direct
sunlight. Always turn switches OFF and
remove all batteries for storage.
