Getting RC train to work

Getting RC train to work

Post  Cpt. Gingerbeard on Sun Nov 23, 2014 9:18 pm

I have been trying to get the RC motor to work for a train. When I get the batteries in and both the battery box and controller turned on and set to the same channel, all I get is a beeping noise.

If anyone has any ideas for fixing this or could tell me what I'm doing wrong I would appreciate it.

Is it a beeping or a high pitched whine? Which motor are you using. The older RC motor or the current Power Functions motor? Have you checked the wheels to make sure they turn freely? If the are slid to tight against the motor they will bind.
