Most likely the receiver is the issue as it can not remember the speed setting.
Can not be the transmitter as he removed the battery.
Engine has possibilities, but if it shows the slow down immediately in each direction, receiver is the culprit.


Best way to find out is to just hook up a 12 volt light bulb to the receiver. If it will not stay on, the receiver is bad.

What is the power pack used to feed the receiver?

I use a discarded 19 volt laptop computer power pack for my basic TE.

The basic is rated at 2.5 amps and the laptop power pack is 3 amp.
