    How u know your esc wet the bed!

    So just in case you guys ever have an esc go out here is what it looks like! Probably gonna get dual servos... So with that being said pm me the link for the servo you guys would recommend... That way the thread doesn't get shut down and this link may b useful to someone else....

    Had the exact same problem with my Ken Block last week.
    Same response when i was in the book looking for the "what does the fast blinking red over green mean?"
    Figure that might be something they would have included in there with the rest of them.

    Took quite a while to figure it out. Replaced it with a HS85mg and I'm back rocking.

    I know right.. And your truck will only break on Saturday, when service is closed and only the forum is available..! The blinking lights make u assume battery in reality it's really the servo...

    I was guessing it was the servo when you posted a video in the thread"what did you do to your merv today?".

    Hey thanks guys! Yup, one day he will be passed the MERV lol.. by then it will be as hooked up as you guys! But to answer your question MOssie.. Yes I was in the process of taking everything apart and I started with the Servo wire.. and as soon as I pulled it out everything started working again.. when I would plug it back in the light show would happen... so through process of elimination, that's what your esc, and rx would look like if your servo went bad...

    Now I have to order another.. probably will go with the ******* 390 I think and run duals lol... to avoid over kill on a single servo..
    Whatever I just said.. I'm probably wrong..

    Big time Grats ArmySSG! Micah looks perfect! All wrap up in that blanket like a football.

    Other than stock & Hitec, I don't know if any servos that fit easily & are in stock

    I recommend the Corona DS-238MG. It's 0.14sec, about 60in/oz, full metal gears, fits well & is under $10. And is out of stock

    Congratulations! He looks like a fine son!

    I have a 390 I picked up second hand for a spare but it could be months on the 390 can't go by their 30 days. I have been.running a hitec 5085 for 6 months with some hard 50+MPH crashes and the servo is great!

    Good luck getting some sleep!

    Running dual servos without setting them up properly is worse than running a single servo. Just stick with a single ******* or BlueBird 390.
