Default Dead Multiplex Rhino Servo

Hi I’ve got a Multiplex Rhino Digi 4 servo & its dead, I’ve pulled it apart, checked the leads & they are getting power & signal.

Its not the radio or RX as I have crossed checked with other servos.

The circuit board looks fine.

Any ideas??

Since you did all teh troubleshooting you can do, you should call MultiPlex and warranty the servo. It i probably a factory defect.

They do have a habit of just giving up when used without a regulator. They are very sensitive to the overvoltage that our big fat packs give when freshly charged, it's their only weakness, and they don't all suffer from it. I have 3 and never had the problem, but I know a guy who blew two in a row, now he uses a regulator. You shouldn't have any trouble getting MP to warranty it.
