Default Reciever shorted?

I was at a race last week, and during practice, i had minor tap on the boards. afterwards, my quantum comp would'nt even light up. I thought I had fried it, i was pretty upset but, my friend plugged my esc into his car, with an intact reciever, and it worked perfectly! So my question is, is it possible for the reciever to short? I was using the airtronics micro 3 channel reciver, the same one that comes with the M8, has anyone had a similar experience or knows what happened? Now I have 2 recievers to send back to Aitronics..

been there done that .. except i also burned up a motor and speedo and reciever all at one time ....just weird stuff going on.. I did have a reciever go bad for no reason and it was an Airtronics blue ...I dont know why it quit though... Oh yeah.. it had small rocks in it that caused it to short out where the crystals plug in ..

Not sure about a receiver shorting, but it is possible. The first thing to check would be the crystal itself. These are known to break due to impact.

Good luck on this one.

No kidding, you fried electronics!? Oh, that's right, you're the one I've seen on a couple of occasions with flames coming out of the back of the car! Just giving you sh** bro.

You should look into a small extinguisher controlled by a 3rd channel on your radio!

I ran into the same problem with a KO reciever during a crash in my 12th scale. Everything just died. It had to be readjusted.
