    Mine has very little use on it and the steering motor quit today, so bummed and I do believe its out of warranty anyway, I did take it all apart and found the servo motor not working, I shook the gear box and the motor started working again, but to the left it works faster than to the right, so I took the motor apart and found the brushes unevenly worn, so I bent the brush arms a little, worked great for a bit then started getting hot, so I played around with it a bit more but no luck, I did get it working but its not right, cheap little motor and has the worm gear attached so I need to find a replacement motor some how and get the worm gear off, seems to be really pressed on tight, anyone have any ideas on how to remove the worm gear off the shaft and press it on to another motor without messing it up??

      is the worm gear metal or plastic?


      • #4
        It is metal and I tried to remove it form the motor but that thing is really stuck on the shaft, after several attempts I ended up breaking the gear in 1/2, so I ordered the upgraded faster response servo and gear box for the Huina one, looks the same so I hope it fits and last longer than the stock one, will update when it gets here.

          I had the very same problem, lost steering control. I started a repair ticket and sent it back to MotiionRC. They have refunded me for the loader.
          I want to thank MotionRC for their willingness to work with me on this issue.
          Since this steering problem is a reoccurring issue I would caution anyone from buying this model and ask MotionRC to stop selling it until the steering issue is resolved.
          Thanks again MotionRC for standing behind your product and great customer service!!

            Well, I don't think they will let me return it, mine was purchased last year for Christmas. Yes I do agree, it is a problem and they know it, but we keep buying em....

              Got an update for you guys, I ordered the high speed turning servo upgrade for the Huina loader and its a drop in fit for the XK one, it comes with a circuit board but I didn't use it, looks like its for the Huina one, there is a guy who does the swap on the Huina but not the XK, so I did it and it works great, only thing I had to do was reverse the wires coming off the servo motor, if you plug it in as is then left is right and right is left, so I just cut the red/black wires and soldered them up red to black and black to red and that had the steering going in the right direction, its worth the $55 upgrade so far, let me know if anyone needs more info, I didn't video anything or take pics, and I'm not taking it apart again, lol.

              Just go to the Huina web page and you will see the upgrade option, I ordered straight from the factory.
