Default Need Help with Servo Problem on HL Mad Truck

Hi Guys,

Was wondering if anyone can assist me with this problem.

The item is: Heng Long Mad Truck:

http://cgi.ebay.com/New-1-10-4WD-Off...QQcmdZViewItem

Receiver/Transmitter is fine. Just when the control try to steer, makes a rudder noise and lags a bit. I think the problem is the servo.

How can this be fixed? And also, if anyone have this truck, what is your experience with them? What kind of Servos should we use to fix this issue? Lower cost the better!

Thank you

Yeah I cooked a couple servos just to run 10 minutes, the steering linkages seem to bind. You need a spare truck? Check out my MAD TRUCK post !!!

I'd get a replacement from Futaba or Hitec. I'm not sure what size you need to replace it. If you can take some measurements of the old servo's dimensions, it would help to find a replacement.
