    Steering is reverse with SB-5 HPI servo

    Hey guys,

    I have an HPI Trophy 3.5 RTR, I recently upgraded to the HPI SB-5 steering servo, but now my steering is backwards (turning the wheels forwards used to make it turn right, now it turns it left). I'm sure this is a simple thing to fix, but I'm stumped on how to do it.

    Thanks,

    Tim

    You're looking for the channel reverse function of your transmitter. Possibly a switch on the back of the unit? Still got the manual?

    RE: Steering is reverse with SB-5 HPI servo

    Once replacing the servo make sure the Radio System was turned on when you hooked up the steering linkage Servo horn or you will not have a centered Servo.

    You may have to do some tweaking to get the steering suspension to track straight again.   Reverseing a servo on the Transmitter is not uncommon when replacing them.   Readjusting the linkage to the new servo is very common.  One little spline off makes a huge difference in tracking straight.
