Glitching ONLY in Reverse
So I am new to this RC thing and have gained valuable insight from many folks. Recently I just finished building my first VTA car.
1. Novak Ballistic 25.5T Motor
2. Novak Edge ESC
3. Savox SC-1258TG Servo
4. Airtronics MX-Sport radio + FHSS-2 3-Channel 2.4ghz receiver
5. Venom 5000mah 50C 2S Lipo
After some trial and error and rereading the manuals for the ESC and radio, I was able to reduce the speed of reverse. After I initially got the car working, whenever I hit reverse, it would just go FULL SPEED REVERSE. Going forward I could control the speed as normal. I discovered that I misread the Airtronics instructions and now can dial the reverse to lower speeds. And so I thought that I was good to go.
But... now I see 2 problems. I've never personally experienced "glitching" so I'm guessing this is what it means.
Now occasionally after I brake and the car comes to a full stop, it won't reverse. Sometimes it will reverse. Other times I have to push the radio trigger 1-2-3... times and THEN it reverses. Sometimes it just reverse when I want it to. The Edge ESC came with that capitor to help reduce glitching and I even tried plugging it into the receiver but that doesn't seem to help.
Sometimes, when trying to reverse, I notice the main wires and the small capitor-like device that is attached to the ESC vibrate - and makes a odd "snapping" sound.
Thanks for your help.
