Dude...that happened to me the other night. The worst thing is that I really have no idea where to start digging around cuz it went back to normal and never did it again. How do you find something that currently isn't there!! This is the 3rd time it's happened in like a year, so I'm not really sweating it. But yeh, trippy.

I just chalk it up as a non reproducible problem and thus try not to worry about it.

It only happens once in a while, but at typically the worst times, and I can never get it to happen consistently. I can walk a half mile away and still have a connection to the receiver, but it still randomly drops out like that at SRS from 20ft. Frustrating for sure.

Was there any particular thing that the car was doing when glitching.
I used to glitch intermittently right after landing off jumps. It turns out to be the steering servo wire was shorting on chassis every now and then. may want try new steering servo.

Yea, from the video in that spot right after I came off the jump, just straight line for the pipe. Couldn't have done it better myself if I had control.

And also in the first lap in the first 40 sec of the video when Ray and Keoni pass me on the sweeper before the straight. It just loss signal and thus power.

Its also happened in the back right corner on other nights, but didn't seem to be an issue on Sat night. Anyways Ill be out on Wed night to run for points and Ill try re-syncing the radio to rx before the race, see if it helps.
