Hello all,
As the title states I have a Traxxas 6533 receiver, maybe a month old. I was out bashing and my servo horn fell off (the only screw I didn't have blue thread lock on. It is a P2 servo) anyways I couldn't get the horn back on in the field because of the amount of work to get to the servo horn on a Slash 4x4 LOG. So I waited until I got back home a few days later and notice that I had no throttle, the ESC (CC Mamba Monster X w/ CC 1512 2650kv motor) was acting like it had no signal from the transmitter. After substituting the transmitter and then the receiver I determined that the throttle channel was gone, ch 2.
I went out and bought a new receiver and all is good.
Has anyone have this happened to them?
Don't know what could of caused this to fail.

Have to ask...
Are you sure that your your ESC'c connector was plugged all the way into the Rx? It may have worked itself loose.

Yes I am sure, I unplugged everything and reconnected everything.

I second what squeegee said. Probably a good idea to run a few more tests to make sure it's dead.
If it is dead, traxxas will most likely replace the receiver for free if it's only a month old, especially if you can provide some proof of purchase.
Best of luck!
Smell something burning? Sorry, I was thinking.
