Default kyosho inferno ve esc problem

my sons inferno ve stopped working today,at first it would run a little then shut off but the steering servo still worked,it seemed if you would move stuff around it would work try and run it agian same thing would happen,after a couple of times doing this it went dead altogether no power to the wheels or steering and the light doesnt come on the esc,so does anyone have any ideas does kyosho have a warranty and how long its covered,or do they have a exchange plan like traxxas

Hi RC8Tedad,

Yes, those batteries are perfectly fine to use and to tell Kyosho you are using them. The orion speed control is a great speed control...very smooth for a sensorless controller...but every once in a blue moon there may be a problem. The great thing is Kyosho will stand behind the product and warranty it for you .
