    Today i went out and bought a new Hitec HS 645MG Servo. Plugged it in and everything and then set in on the ground to run. Throttled it and turned right into the damn curb. Realizing that the steering had switched itself on my controller.

    Now i know this is a new servo and i'm sure you guys know the problem and how to fix it. I have the stock controller with it and i'm just curious how to switch it back to normal (This is a right handed controller, as they all are) so when i turn left it goes right and visa versa.

    Any help with this problem would be awesome and if i don't have to buy anything either that would be cool. Thansk guys.

    On your radio theirs a servo switch...you just flip it opposite of what it is now.

    Don't know what radio you have but they are generally inside the plastic cover where you make all your adjustments or sometimes where you put the batteries.

    ive never had one but all the radios I know usually have a switch...heres a pic of my axial controller...The very top left hand switch is what you should have someplace on your radio.

    It might even be a little tiny white/black switch but im sure you have one someplace.

    Looks like it is on the front of the controller.

    You should just have to switch it over and it should work
