Default DX3.0 radio/SR3000 receiver problem, need advice

Hey guys,

During racing last weekend my radio would simply quit working. By that I mean all communication between the transmitter and receiver was lost. All batteries were fully charged, I swapped out a different on/off switch and rebound the receiver. Radio worked fine for another qualifier then the same thing, (no signal). Receiver is an SR3000 btw.

I rebound to another guys DX3R and it worked the rest of the day (had range issues then but that's not important) Do you suspect the SR3000 receiver as being defective? The problem is very intermittent. (it's actually working fine right now).

Thanks once again for your advice!

what are you smoking? ive sent many things to them(servos and receivers and a radio), had many things sent to me as well, MOST its taken is 3 weeks, which isnt bad. if i call in and they just send me something its no more then 3 days



BUT Cannondale1974, as far as your problem, its sounds like to me your radio is bad. if the reciever works on a different radio but not yours. i would try a different receiver to your radio and see. if you can go without a radio send them both in if you cant figure it out
