By no means am I making fun of you nor do I assume that my grammar below is perfect.
I just had a hard time reading your post and I am REALLY bored at work!
My Friend and I were driving my buggy in his backyard, as well as in the backyard of some vacant houses.
Everything was going great until my friend turned the buggy sharply.
The buggy caught air and headed straight for a pond of water!
I ran over and pulled it out as quickly as I could. It appeared that only the nose had been submerged.
We air-dried as much of the electronics as we could except for the receiver.
The receiver had no signs of water on it so we assumed it was fine.
When we were finished, we took it back outside and began running the buggy on asphalt.
I was about to bring it back in when, all of a sudden, the receiver gave out.
The buggy took off down the road at almost full power!
My friend and I gave chase as it miraculously dodged trees, walls, cars and anything else in front of it!
It finally made it onto the yard of a neighbor's house and took out one of their lawn lights as it headed towards the front door!
I managed to grab the buggy before it had a chance to get to the door.
It was definitely one of the craziest chases I have been involved in.
My friend felt bad and has offered to pay for a replacement receiver.
However, I do not want to charge him some outrageous amount as he is my friend.
Do any of you know where I can find a reasonably priced receiver?
My best guess would be Tower Hobbies.
They have tons of receivers for all kinds of prices.
I'm sure you can find something relatively inexpensive.
Also, try the "For Sale" section here. There is always some good deals on used receivers.
What brand receiver was it?
