Default Turnigy / Hobbyking combo sudden glitch

I have a Turnigy GTX3 radio at 11.2 volts and a Hobbyking FHSS receiver. Today at random, my car would jerk to the right suddenly. My antenna is laying down next to motor, battery and carbon chassis. I know back in the 80s that was a huge no no, but doesn't seem to matter these days. It sure didn't matter the last two times out. Is my voltage just low enough that this is now an issue? Are there other radios that are compatible with these receivers? I have lots of them. It would be nice to keep them if I'm running into a quality radio issue.

Default Glitch

Could be a receiver brown out. Try a receiver pack or glitch buster capacitor to eliminate the bec from being weak.

On order. Thanks man. I'm still also going to order a Ko Propo radio. Banzai has a new EX-5 in FHSS. I'm used to these for Mini Z. Great radio.
