    SD-6G Servo, Servo Monitor Indicator Movement, Interference Flicker

    I recently purchased a SD-6G and noticed that the servo and the servo monitor indicators for ruder and aileron do not move in the same direction as the stick in normal mode. As an example, when I apply left aileron, the servo and the servo indicator bar move right.
    Is something wrong with my radio?

    Also, the radio came with a defective switch harness. I noticed this when I tested the radio at home. The Rx light flickers when I touch the switch, or wires. Right out of the box, I already had the impression that the switch harness has very thin and inflexible wires.

    RE: SD-6G Servo, Servo Monitor Indicator Movement, Interference Flicker

    Hi,

    Regarding the servo monitor, it shows movement only in the High or Low direction, which may differ from the Right/Left or Up/Down direction depending on the setting of your servo reversing (NOR/REV). So, it's normal for the indicators in some cases to display opposite stick movement.

    Regarding the receiver flicker/switch, I will leave that up to someone else from Airtronics to answer, but in my opion, I would suggest contacting Airtronics Customer Service about it. You can email them at service@mail.airtronics.net

    I have to make a correction. The switch harness does not cause the flicker described above. The switch works fine. The flicker occurs when the rx is placed close to a notebook. It seems that the wireless device causes interference.

    Here is a short vid showing the flicker:

    All 2.4GHz devices including other radios will cause some interference. It's just not "interference" like the "72mhz days", it's interference meaning we're hoping through some channels that are being momentarily shared. The flickering for the most part is telling you nothing more than other 2.4GHz devices are in use.

    Mike,
    does this mean that Sanwa's "bind indicator light" is more sensitive than that of other 2.4 brands?
    I just checked the link with a servo connected. Servo movement is undistorted during these short moments when the light flickers.

    Regards,
    Marco
