So i have been really busy that last few months working only to lose my job due to cutbacks.... and them not wanting to give me a raise or the promised medical\dental....... (50 hour + weeks didn't help....) So i figured i would take my Tiger for a spin well trying to setup proper controls with my Spektrum DX6i well........that did NOT go as planned. After playing with the controls my tank took off on its own and plowed into the Garage door causing the gun to snap the recoil servo and some other parts.... (And throw off the left sides drive wheel.......) So in short any suggestions on what to do? Or should i save up some cash and send it to freaky for repairs? (With my controller to see if he can figure out why it never worked right with the stupid thing)

That is an easy peasy fix. Servo still works fine? If so the parts to fix that  might cost 10 bucks lol
Let me know if you need a new servo, I have a few of the attaching plates hanging around that we can just swap out so it should be no big deal

Well it should still work the problem is the Control board went full retard on me and drove the tank into the house yet i have no idea why....... (I suspect it is my Dx or Receiver........) I have had a few RC Plane buddies try to get them to work and they had almost the same result. (Except instead of the hitting the house the tank took off down the street.....at full speed)

I feel like I may be igniting a tinder box here but... how does a tank just take off out of control?

Even if everything is WRONG, if the control sticks are centred it wont move..

Strato  I have seen it happen with some recievers. I tore the front right gear off my wespe body when it did it. 
 I am just guessing here but I think the clark reverses the throttle safety lock at full open. The radio has to be shut off or the recievers has to suffer a brown out but when it does then zoom and the tank is gone. WT's tiger being a stock with no metal parts and it zips along pretty quickly.
The assumption that shutting the radio down kills the tank is wrong.  Think that is wierd?
On the beach here in Barrie there is a microwave tower direct eye sight across the lake. When Jaime and I were driving around we get to one spot about 15 feet in diameter and his radio starts controlling my tank and my radio his Tank.
Jaime was using the HKT6A and I had a Spectrum DX5E. Move outside the spot and everything is fine.
I figure its something to do with the microwave tower or its a bermuda circle lol

Wow, yea that is nuts!

..and that's a good point about the auto failsafes on some receivers. I've never had to check, I don't think any of mine have it. Makes sense though.

I was debating calling a priest as i think my tank is possessed.

And Freaky you will be happy to know this thing completely floored a Tamiya Sherman in a race........even with the metal tracks on!
