there should be a menu option like theo suggested, think its just "rev" on the 3pk.

servo deffinitly reversed, once you get it right, be sure to re ajust trim and endpoints

and just to be clear, when i say reversed, i mean reversed in the radio, not the wires going to the rx

That has to be the only explanation. Look in your manual. If you dont have one you should be able to find it online.

I have read that thing front to back and no help so far. The brakes are always on even if I dont hit the throttle.

What exactly are you saying? does the carb open when you pull on throttle & brakes clamp when you push trigger forward? Are your brake rods rubbing on the eyelets they go through when you pull trigger so as the carb opens the brake cams are rotating also. If your servo is moving opposite what your trigger is the only thing it can be is how you have the controler set in the menu. If it was the servo plugged in backwards it would have severe problems or not work at all,sending a signal down the ground wire is not a good thing. So if its not a mechanical problem & its not an obvious problem in the menu the go into the menu on the controler & reset that model back to factory spec(it will have that option) & if that dont fix it check in the menu again & see what mode that model is set to,transmit mode that is.

Just saw your most recent post after mine went up.Its not in fail safe mode is it?your steering works right?
