Traxxas EMaxx ESC / Battery Problems

Dan Barlow

Recommended Posts

Hi All, I’m having some trouble with my old EMaxx, I just replaced the LiPo batteries as the old ones had died. I’ve not used it for a while and with the new batteries fitted (possibly unrelated) it’s doing some crazy stuff with the throttle (steering is working fine). I assumed that the ESC needs calibrating but when I hold the button down to recalibrate it just switches the ESC off. Am I doing something wrong?

When switched on I’ve had no throttle at all, or it just randomly spins in forward and reverse when the throttle isn’t pressed.

See if this is any help ? https://traxxas.com/support/Programming-Your-Traxxas-Electronic-Speed-Control


If not maybe some crap under the button interfering with the switching it on / off long hold process. Can always crack it open and blow any crap off that's under the button.
