Default re: glicking

couple thoughts

is the antenna pointed towards upper deck or at body? I found with mine that having the antenna right in under and around the graphite chassis caused occasional hit - not often but once is enough.

are you running the reccomended diodes? this is very important.

are you running stock or 19t production motor? we've seen a low percentage that just cause radio problems. at the rroc there was one person for sure and believe a second that had radio problems so bad they couldn't even run. after changing ALL radio gear, electronics the problem was still there

last there are RF Filters you can purchase from JR and am sure others that i've seen eliminate radio problems too

thats about all my 2 cents worth

When ever I've suffered from interference with my cuda it's been the motor. Solder on three cheap new caps (total cost about 20pence) and it normaly disapears. If it doesn't then I've found moving the reciever, esc, wiring doesn't do a lot, it does have an effact but it's not normaly enough to cure it. I have had a couple of very bad days so recently sent my radio to get checked by a guy with access to the right equipment (he works at a tv/radio store ) and he found the transmitter was quite badly tuned, he's seen lots of KO radio's that were terrible, many from the factory have been bad. I haven't actually run it yet but things should be fine, as long as my motor's have motor caps on it won't suffer from motor arcing and any other problems I used to have can be traced to my radio getting swamped by things like other drivers radio's or nearby objects giving off/reflecting signals.

I'm on 40MHz too with my KO Vantage 2, the Matrix motors like to arc a lot without caps on, hence my problems at the first SMTCA round at Stirling, where I couldn't find anyone with spare caps
My radio was very bad, something like half it's minimum signal strength specification at the end frequency ranges. Now it's well within the desired signal strengths

LOL, whats wrong with 75MHz?

with 40MHz we sometimes have too many users and people with dodgy crystals can effect others if they are on close frequencies.

27MHz is usually better because less people use it but there are CB radio frequencies that are close, and you often find Taxi's causing you interference luckily most tracks don't have taxi's coming close

Try this out and let me know...there still are a few more things but try this 1st

-Dave
Actually that is the first thing I did, and when I do that, there is very little drag on either end, maybe a little more on the rear though. This thing has me puzzled...
