Default RC18T problem

When i turn it and the controller on, the steering works but the motor doesn't move. Could this be radio interference? something fried?

Before you buy a new speedo, try resetting the speed control. It worked for me.

Also, pull the motor out and check that nothing is bound up, burned up, or worn out.
