    Random loss of signal?

    Hey guys, I'm running an '06 bandit xl-5 (converted from xl-1). I have the newer tq #6519 receiver and whatever the new remote is. However, it seemed every time I hit a bump, I lost radio signal. I figured the receiver went out after 5 years of bashing, so once the virus calms down I'll send it in to be replaced via the lifetime electric part warranty. In the meantime, I got out the old crystal radio system, and during random moments I would once again totally loose radio reception, and the only way to get it back was to place the radio within 3 feet if the model. Not sure what to do... Any tips/advice?

    Sounds like a short in maybe your esc plug? Open receiver box and while powered on smack the bottom of your car see if receiver loses power?

    Well, I seem to have fixed the problem... The crystal radio receiver managed to somehow get water in it the last time I used it. As for the 2.4 GHz, I took the receiver and cleaned it all up, cotton swab and soapy wooder on the terminals. I also blew out the connections with compressed air, and that has appeared to fix the problem.
