Driving RC trucks on a dusty rough road is really enjoyable. But eventually you will break some parts of your vehicle. Or you may have already broken some parts of your RC vehicle. So what do you do in this kind of situation? Do you get support from an expert who is expensive or do you prefer to repair the vehicle by yourself? You will definitely say that you like to repair your vehicle by yourself. So, let’s discuss about the repairing aspect.

Before start repairing, you have to have a proper tool kit. Screw drivers which suits your remote controlled toy screws, multi wrench for wheel nuts, tweezers etc. are needed to be in your tool kit. Having a good quality tools are really essential because if you use low quality products, it will damage your RC vehicle parts. And also lifetime of low quality tools are relatively lower. So purchasing high quality tools at a slightly higher price will give you long term benefits.

If your toy has physical damages, first observe it carefully. Sometimes there are parts which are damaged and we can’t actually see the damage in first look. You can refer your vehicles user manual and the component list in order to identify the damaged parts correctly and get the part numbers of it.

After identifying correct parts which are damaged, then you can purchase it from a reliable seller. For this purpose you can always use the online market places such as ebay, aliexpress, etc. There are many sellers who sell spare parts for RC trucks. Otherwise you can contact your nearby toy shop.

After purchasing the parts, you can straight away replace the components. It is the matter of having the experience and patience. But if the damages of your vehicle are not physical, you may not be able to identify it straight away. For troubleshooting these kinds of issues, you should observe the behavior of your vehicle. Most of the times, RC trucks show unusual behaviors in this kind of situation.

Before move into big repairs, just check all the wire connections inside the RC truck. There may be some loose connections. If the problem still remains, check the voltage of your battery. There may be sudden voltage drops of the battery. Checking the voltage level of the battery (especially in Li-Po batteries) is really essential to maintain your battery’s health. You can buy a voltage monitor by spending only few bucks to serve this purpose.

If your this toy does not respond to your transmitter, first check the batteries of your transmitter as well as the truck. If the batteries are in good condition, it may be a problem of the receiver which is placed inside the truck. If either the steering servo or main motor is not working properly, check the servo or the motor for any loose connections or winding of any foreign matter.

Hope you got a basic understanding about troubleshooting RC trucks. Do not worry to repair your own RC truck. Just give it a try. You will eventually be an expert in repairing RC vehicles.
