Default HPI Vorza - motor spins constantly

When I turn OFF my transmitter after using the car the motor spins, on it's own.

This doesn't affect the car until I've had the transmitter on - if I just power the car up and don't connect the transmitter, all is good. As soon as the transmitter is connected / powered on, and then powered off, the motor turns.

Any ideas anyone? I'm a bit of a newb so have no idea where to start. This car has recently be re-assebled as it had an issue b ut the ESC is new, brand new.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Darren

You should NEVER switch off the transmitter while the car is still on.

When you switch on, transmitter first, car second.

When you switch off, car off, transmitter second.

Oh really - well that sounds so basic! Thanks.

Pretty sure this never happened before though - so I would rather it didn't but I will never notice now as I won't turn off the transmitter before the car - sound advice, thanks.

generally you can rid yourself of this problem if you rebind your car to your radio (if using a 2.4 "spektrum" type radio, and when you bind hold the throttle in the BRAKE position (that sets your fail safe to full brake)

NOTE: The cool thing about having this feature working is - you can park your car (say if it's wrecked) and turn OFF the transmitter, and the car won't budge cause its fail safe is holding the brake on.

re-calibrate your radio with the ESC, and be sure to put 'everything' to 0 before you do (EPA, sub trims, trims, exponential curves, etc).

+1 These two are basic. With Minami make sure all trims are at zero or 12 o'clock

Have fun!!!
