I would make sure you have fresh or charged batteries in the radio. Also make sure your receiver pack is fully charged. If you dont have a rec. pack, but your car uses 4aa, i would go buy a rec park for better voltage. Also make sure your antennae is mounted correctly. If the system is 2.4 ghz, maybe rebind the setup. You should be able to drive that thing so far away that you can barely see it. Good luck, and let us know if any of those ideas helped.

Hey Koreanassasom, What kind of radio do you have? Its odd that throttle would work and not brakes. Do you have a DX3R? There is a toggle near the throttle that can mess up your brake epa.

If you just got it today did you read the manuel completely, that would be the first thing I would do, specially if your not familiar with the radios functions.

If it's the M11x i'm thinking you bent the top part of the antenna to the point that it broke.

I have a m11 and my antena broke a long time ago so i took it out. Your radio does not use that antena. It uses the one on your spectrum transmitter.

At my house, my m11 doesn't have very good range and seems to have a delay. But at the track there's no problems.

I've noticed that my old Spektrums would do this. I'd re-bind and the same thing. Worked fine for a while, then they'd just stop getting any range... I fixed the problem by getting the M11x...

This is my experience from a brand new spektrum SR series receiver. Found its defective; tried to bind with a used receiver-no problem. According to them, saying antenna is not soldering good and my symptoms exactly like yours.....m11 is a nice one....

Mine is new from Losi 8ight RTR buggy a few years ago.

Sent it back to Horizon--gave me a new one, no question asked, of course with my receipt.

Hope this helps.
