    New 18mz with elevator stick travel problem

    Well I got my 18mz but I think I have a problem.

    It appears there is some type of stop in the elevator stick when pushing down elevator.

    You can see in the picture that it stops at about 2 thirds travel. In the other picture on the servo monitor the travel is only showing 57% travel. Is there an adjustment on the back or something that I can do or does it need to be shipped back.

    It doesn't do this for up elevator, the stick moves the full amount and the monitor shows 100%.

    There are no mixes or anything in the radio, this is immediately after turning it on.

    RE: New 18mz with elevator stick travel problem

    Well I decided to test how tight the springs got before I sent it back to Futaba to see I'd I wanted them to put in stiffer springs. The screw for the elevator was really loose so I tightened it down all the way and low and behold I now have full travel on the elevator. 100% in both directions. Maybe the loose screw was preventing the travel, I don't know what the mechanism looks like in there, but it is fixed now.

    We're glad you got it solved.

    If you have the airplane transmitter, you already have the stiffest springs available.
