There is a good chance that the control board is bad. This is a common problem with these units. I have replaced my control board twice. When the control board goes out, some function of the unit will not work correctly while other functions work fine. The first time mine went out, the prop motor would not work. The last time the board went out, the unit would only steer right.

Hello Jim. You have lost your power some where. Start with the wire & terminal connections to the battery. Open the bottom of the foot pedal and check the wiring connections there. Note be very careful here for you have the battery still connected. You may have a fuse in line some where blown. You can check for voltage with a VOM(volt meter) on the wire terminals. Good Luck.

The co-pilot control could be faulty, supplying full voltage to the motor with reverse polarity. Try to check, or have someone check the voltage out of the control to see if it's reversed. If it is, the control is bad. The other scenario might be a connector that came loose, and was accidentally connected with reverse polarity, but that's a long shot and guess. Since there is no control over the voltage, I would suspect the co-pilot remote circuit or control first. That seems like it would be the most likely suspect culprit. Good luck, and hope this helps.

Yes this sounds like the remote add-on is having issues, or the receiver portion of the remote add-on at least. Hopefully it is still under warranty and you can get it replaced at no cost.
