hi martin, please don't think I am being funny😡, but have you tried putting the plugs in the opposite way round, I still some times put the plugs in the wrong way round,the silver bits you can see I think should be facing down from the battery connection and so on.

dicky motor by jtdavid Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
hi, it sounds like you have the receiver to low in your boat, try lifting it higher up above the water line if possible. as I said before submarines don't work very well on 2.4 ghz because they work below water level try it and let us no if it works. its a common problem with 2.4ghz unless you put receiver above water line. a few people I have spoken to have gone back to 27mhz or 40mhz. also you will notice the antenna is only short try putting this above as well. david

dicky motor by jtdavid Lieutenant   Posted: 2 years ago
hi, what type of transmitter are you using eg, 40mhz, 27 MHz, our 2.4ghz. you can find that 2.4mhz, if the receiver is below the water line reception can be very poor, i no the submarine guys can only use 27mhz because they go below the water. let us no your set up it makes helping you a lot easyer👍 david
