Default charging problems

if your transmitter goes dead will it effect your reciever servo speed?? I don't see how. Now i have a marathon orion 1600 for my reciever. I only bought a ofna 6 volt charger for it instead of the expensive one. the charger says it takes 8 hours. well i woke up after charging it all night and i was setting my linkage ane it goes dead??? I noticed that my transmitter batteries were going dead, but how could that effect my servos? Also will overcharging hurt the battery???? Shit i have to race today and i don't have time for another 8 hours. besides what good would it do.

yes the battery pack was new and yes it has been working.

if your transmitter is dead how are you supposed to work the servo's? lol

get yourself a proper charger, WELL worth the investment. a good starter charger would be the duratrax intellipeak. i have one myself and it work's great!

also if i'm not mistaken batt pack's take a few cycle's to "come to life"

i figured that the weak batteries on the transmitter would only effect singnal stregth and range, and the reciever battery pack would control how much power the servo has. but i looked in the manual and it says poor servo speed means change the transmitter batteries.

it can have that effect as well, especially on RTR radio gear....

get some fresh Tx batt's and a decent charger for your Rx batt and you'll be good to go
