Your battery is probably fine, your reciever/esc is toast.
That's kind of what I was afraid of. Going to email them tomorrow and see what they say. I knew i was going to have to/want to replace them at some point anyway, but really? Thing barely rolled 20 feet.

And charged the battery again. Or at least plugged it in until light turned green and it operated normal again for about 20 seconds and then slowly died. No burning electronics smell.

Well that does sounds like a bad battery. I would definitely try a different battery if you can.

Emailed axial ...New servo on its way no question asked , they where very apologetic about its death lol
But honestly after installing a full size servo I can't see me going back to micro.

What was the length on that screw? And did you use the adapter that came with the extra parts tree? If so which one there's 3 different ones.

M2.3 x 8mm

Long story short. It took a month of emailing, and me to remind the guy that "i never got my screws" before they shipped 'em. After that another week for them to show up.

I also asked Hitec for some longer ones, and they actually sent me a link to a discontinued spektrum part number. I googled that part number, and found these. They are 15mm long. Cut to length. i made sure and ordered 2 packs before posting this. 2 packs of 5 for $9.97 shipped.

JRP980187 Socket Head Bolts, 2.3 x 15mm (5), V5NX - JR Helis and Multi Rotors


In the vehicle in question (RC18R) i used an HS-5065MG which has the B1 Mini Spline (25 teeth) i believe this is standard for all hitec micro servo. here's a horn from servo city. I highly recommend ditching the servo saver.

Thanks poprivet. I have had no luck finding a screw and looks like I will probably have to contact Hitec.

I'm not sure. Servo city shows that servo as 24 tooth (C1) spline. That might be the M2.6 screw.

Servocity.com has always been my go to site for servo info. They have dimensions, spline counts, torque and speed specs on almost every servo on the market.

I read much earlier in the thread that the Team Associated turnbuckles and ball cups are a direct fit. Here's a pic.




I plan to swap the servo tie-bar out for a turnbuckle soon too.

Edit: Try to fix orientation of photo...

Non Titanium parts for those wanting the lower priced option:

Associated 21343
Associated 21387

Just ordered both part numbers above from Tower Hobbies for $10.87 including shipping.

A couple weeks ago picked up the rc18t turn buckles and installed them without issue.



I see you guys are posting the T2's. They look similar however have open ball sockets which I like and seem to screw in a little further.

You could get just the Associated 21387 which is the better rod ends that will fit the turnbuckles you bought.

I'm projecting by the end of the month, but I am having some set-backs with the design, so it might be early Feb. Stay tuned!

Yeti Jr has been a fun little truck. Bummer I had to upgrade all the electronics before I even got to drive it. Are you guys still contacting Axial about the issues? I really don't care that much. I would have changed the components eventually. I think it would be cool though if Axial gave those of us that purchased this first batch as the test guinea pigs priority, discount or heads up with there next mini release. I'm praying for a 1/18 Bomber. That would make it all right in my book.

I'd buy an entire fleet of their current lineup if they were all offered as kits: Bomber, Wraith, and SCX10ii.
