: Bumper Boy off frequency?

I have two derby doubles and have been having trouble getting them to fire properly at a distance. when I get closer then they seem to work better. I was told that they might be slightly off frequency? Has anyone else heard of a bumperboy being off frequency? How often does it happen? What would cause it? What is the fix?

I don't own a BB but I would guess that the problem lies with your transmitter antenna rather than the frequency. The remote controls for a BB would be frequency coded and it would be highly unlikely that they could wander off frequency. Has the transmitting antenna been bent at all - it may have broken internally limiting its transmitting power.

Cheers, Jason.
