I bought my kids two redcat blackout xte’s. Almost immediately ran into problems. Had to replace a burned out motor after the first run using 2s lipo.. bought new motor, worked fine the first time.. second time: no throttle response. Esc is working fine. Is it the motor? Help!! No mechanic at the local hobby shops are willing to work on redcat.
