Default Strange radio gear problem (throttle and brake only)

Hi, eversince we had our national event held over the weekend i ve noticed my throttle/brake servo has all of a sudden gone haywire, when i accel its fine although it does take longer than usual to center itself. The other problem is it takes a good 5 secs for my brakes to come thats how slow its gone, now i ve never had these issues before. I ve changed servos and even put my HRS pack on and still same thing, slow centering of the throttl/brake servo whilst the brake doesnt even seem like it wants to do its job, ive tried playing around with the radio gear with no luck but i have found out if i reverse the channels arund on the reciever it springs back to normal operation! but then my steering suffers the same problem. I ve come to the the conclusion its surely a programming problem but its one of those things thats driving me mad as i cant seem to figure out the cause of the it! Any help would be awesome.

Check your throttle trim and steering trim on your radio. Oh, and check the batteries, too...seriously. lol

all fixed ae Fong it was the diode thats on the throtle, charger was a bit dodgy suspected it was the charger not putting out a consistant current and somehow effected the diode so we resoldered the joints and it was sweet, saves Fong $450 NZ
