Sounds like the ESC portion of the receiver could be damaged. Check for loose wire connections to the motor and that the capacitors and leads are firmly soldered.

You say the throttle lever broke and you crashed (presumably as a result). So did you crash with the throttle open? If so, then you certainly could have burnt out the ESC if the throttle was open and the prop could not turn. I did this, but in my case it was obvious as the RX/ESC was smoking and I opened the case to see the burnt out component.

I am a bit confused about the control surfaces moving in opposite directions with a different battery though!

Do you know if Hobbyzone and Parkzone use the same components? I have the transmitter, reciever/esc, servos from a Parkzone P51 on 27.145. A couple bucks for shipping and they could be yours. If you can use the parts email me at [email protected]

The P-51 and Super Cub use the same equipment.

Assuming you did purchased the same channel frequency Hobby Zone Transmitter then, you need to check and see if there's any trim settings you can adjust for throttle. Also, check and see if there's any dip switches inside the radio for reversing the servos so, you can make the control surfaces rotate the correct manner.

I suspect that you have a damaged Receiver/ESC/ACT module as a result of the crash.

sounds like maybe your lipo jumper on the receiver may have popped off and is causing the rx to shut down prematurely for your NiMh batteries.

this thread below will give you a pic of what i'm talking about:
