Default magnum elevator servo tray problems

Flew my magnum 3 times the other day. The first 2 flights were uneventful but the third was sure interesting. I kept losing the plane in the sky. It didn't appear to be where I thought it should be. After this happening 3 times in about 2 minutes I landed the thing. Upon inspection, the elevator servo tray was moving 1/4 inch. It won't happen again. Anyone else have this problem.

BTW I'm running the West 50 W/pipe & an apc 8x8 prop.

Default RE: magnum elevator servo tray problems

Nope... you got lucky...

I did lose my elevator and aileron servos on separate occasions, and got it back down in one piece both times... So Magnums are lucky planes!
