Before every use it’s recommended to check that the steering and drivetrain are moving freely and nothing is binding. Next ensure that the model and the transmitter are working correctly. Before you drive your model, range test the radio system to ensure that it operates properly! Turn on the transmitter and then the model, check its operating as it should. Walk away from the model giving steering input with the radio until you reach the maximum distance you are planning to drive your model. If you lose input control walk back towards the model. You now know the safe operating distance for your immediate environment. Do not attempt to operate the model if there is any problem with the radio system/external interference with your radio signal at your location.
