Default Need help with servos/radio!!!

Hey guys! I have a really bad problem... i just got my rc10 gt and it has a trinity radio. The truck is ready to run, but i cant control it. I turned on the radio and the light ison green, so its working, but i dont think it is hooked up to the servos. On my RC Plane there is a switch to turn the servos in the plane on, but i cant find a switch on the car. What is my problem, also if my servos arent connected to the radio, please tell me how to connect them!!!

how do you know it is a "trinity radio" i was not aware they made a radio someone though could have put a sticker on it. you should have either a 4 cell battery pack that holds 4 aa batteries or a 5-6 cell receiver pack. connected to that should be a switch that plugs into your receiver.

lets make things simple.

No matter what radio you are runing.

You will have the transmiter, the reciever, a servo, and a power supply (either a 4 cell holder, recharger packs, or esc)

Connection is simply. Plug servo and battery wires into receiver. There should be a switch on the wire that connects battery to receiver.

PLEASE NOTE: There is a connection that must be pluged in between the batteries and the switch which then connections to the reciever.

LMK when u have solved this problem.

THE BATTERY WIRE COULDNT REACH THE RECIEVER, SO CAN I PURCHASE AN EXTENSION OR IT OR DO I HAVE TO TOTALLY REMOUNT THE BATTERY SO ITS CLOSER TO THE RECIEVER? i UNDID THE BATTERY AND IT WORKS THOUGH.


PS CAN I USE 15 PERCENT NITRO FUEL IN PLACE OF THE NORMAL 20? CAUSE MONEY IS A LITTLE TIGHT AND MY PLANE FUEL IS SITTING AROUND AND ITS 15 PERCENT

Don't use airplane fuel in cars or boats the lubricants are different and you can damage your engine.

as neil mentioned dont use plane fuel.
was there a switch between the battery and the receiver does the battery just plug into the receiver directly. if there is no switch go to the hobby shop and buy a switch or yes you can by a female to male extension.
