This HiTech controller is labelled opposite the one on Schematic 4-2. I have wired it in the other configuration with no better results.
I see what you are saying, but please leave it where the motor controller connectors are in channels 1 and 2 and you still haven't fixed the issue with the power. In the image above the row closest to you is ground, the next row is power, and the last row is signal. You have the ground right, but you have changed the connector so the red power wire is not going to the power row. You have it going to the signal wire. The receiver is not getting any power.
What are the laser cut panels?
The plastic panels that go on the top and bottom of the rover. They have a masking on them that when removed reveals a very clean shiny surface.
What about the position of the 6 nano switches?
They are perfect for the tutorial as it is in figure 4-2.
