We took the Fury out for the first time on Sunday evening. I broke the motor in Saturday night by just running it with the wheels off the ground for about 10 minutes. Then Sunday just drove it at slow-medium speed for about 5 more minutes around the paved drive way. I put the battery in the charger for about 2 hours before presenting the truck to my son. He had a blast with it, especially when he was able to do some jumps at a home-made track an old neighbor built. After about 15 minutes it just stopped. The front tires would turn left and right, but there was no drive. Is it safe to assume this is just a battery worn down? I was using the stock 2000 mah battery. About 5 minutes later it ran for about 30 seconds and shut off again. I know those batteries won't last long, but I read on another forum that a bad ESC could cause no drive but allow steering. Being new, maybe I am panicing a bit. I checked the battery and it read 7.2 volts. Maybe it just couldn't handle the load? I am expecting a 3000mah battery to be delivered today. And am further investigating the LiPo's.
