Reciever...

I keep hearing about putting a ballon around the reciever to protect it and i thout this was a great idea until I wen to put it on and found that the reciever came glued to the radio tray. What do I do to protect the reciever? is it posible to take it off and reattach it somehow? any help would be great Thanks. ;-)

I'm guessing you have an RTR?

The receiver has been stuck on with double sided servo tape - if you wiggle it it may come loose eventually - if not, try to get a small screwdriver under it and prize it off gently. Shock oil or motor spray can weaken the strength of the bond to make it easier to get off.

sosidge ... yeah this is my first rc truck so I got a RTR because I didn't know how all of the electronics worked. But now since i have one and I learned a ton about the hobby my next one I will build.

Just a question. once I get the reciever off how do I reattach it with the ballon around it. Should I put holes in the radio tray and run some sort of tie around or is there another way to do it... thanks for the help

Put a wire tie around the Opening in the baloon, Put a piece of sevo tape on the balloon then attach it it the radio tray.

Is there anything that I can use instead of servo tape since I don't have any?

HPI makes a receiver cover that attaches to the receiver with velcro.
