    Throttle Glitching

    The universe is not on my side when it comes to this boat rebuild lol.

    The throttle only works if you baby it, otherwise it glitches out. Steering is fine. (Video)

    Yes it would be a good idea. It's very easy to install.

    I'd reccomend some lipos, I'm getting 4s 30c's for mine, just as quick as 7cell and runs longer.
