Default Is this the ESC problem?

I just got a RC18t connected everything and set my end points. But, when I drive it, it tends to have a mind of it's own. Throttle stuck on, turns, doesn't move. When it's glitching I lose control of steering until it hits something. Now, I've used two remotes, two receivers and set end points both times I changed them. Same results. Please help!

Have you tried using a glitch buster. My tc5 with a savok servo had a little issue like this. I put on a glitch buster and now it's perfect.

I've not ever even heard of that! Id rather not use another item as there isn't any room to spare but who makes it?

Had the same issue with an SC18 a while back, was the battery pack too close to flat, under load the voltage sagged and the receiver cut out. Recharge the battery and retest

Is the esc brushed or brushless and what connectors are you using? Bad connectors can cause interference.

Radio was Spektrum DX3 and a Flysky both with different receivers. The servo is a Hitec HS65mg

I think I might have gotten it!! Bad battery... I changed out to a spare 10 scale servo I had and same problem was there, then I thought crap, it's the esc. I remembered I had just bought a 2s lipo for my boys truck that I mini deans on and shoved that on the esc connector. I SEEMED TO WORK! I just did little tests on my work bench, I will mess with it more to ensure I'm not missing something. Thanks for all the input!!!
