Naturally I assumed that the problem was something other than the servo, as 99% of my planes have Hitec servos, and I have never had a problem with them. I checked everything including linkages, connections, etc. Plugged the servo into a different channel, and it was still doing weird things. I then remembered that the plane needed elevator trim a few times before, but it was no where near as severe. It was windy when I flew it last time, so I thought that may have been the culprit. I now know the servo was acting wacky since the second I first gave it power.

I've purchased hundreds of servos, among which were many Hitecs.

To date I've had the highest out of box failure rate, not due to overstressing, breaking gears, etc.with Hitecs.

I've had two Hitecs that reacted exactly the same way, I sent them back for replacments which worked, but be forwarned.
I had a JR Sport 125 kill a mustang with a Jett 90 in it.

Horizon has a silent recall ot on them = send them in with a complaint (jitters ect) and you get new ST-126.

I sent in four of them.

My NitroPlanes Bobcat 50 is ready to fly. OMGosh what a "builder's ARF" this thing was. Terrible manual, so so covering and unusable hardware. Fitting the fixed gear setup into the retract ready airframe was a pain. But, It's $100 plus shipping. When finished it's cheap and looks amazing! Mine is the gray/orange version.

Well, my Nitro Plane Bobcat 50 is flying now. 7 1/2 pounds without fuel on fixed landing gear. Power is Aviastar 46. It's enough but I'd follow most other people's lead and go to at least a 60 size engine if I were to build another one.

I hope to do the maiden soon, i have glued the wings on, beefed up the retract mounts with sheer webs through to the top skin and lots of extra glue.
i have gone the light route with a magnum/asp 52 and weston pusher pipe. i only have an 11x6p but want to try a 10x7p as well.
Cheers Greg
