On set up when I goto the selected star the dec motor keeps going to fail. However it skews normally from the hand controller. Anyone have any ideas. :(

Check the cables and connectors, I mean REALLY check them. Look for bent or dirty pins. Disconnect and reconnect them several times. If you can try a different hand controller and/or try your hand controller in a different mount. CHECK THE POWER SOURCE!!! If you are using D Cell batteries, replace them, if you are using an AC to DC adapter, try batteries. Try using a 12 volt car or motorcycle battery instead of D Cells...
