Default servo jitter on range check please help

I have a 40 size cap that the servos jump around like crazy on a range check. The problem is still there after switching the reciever and transmitter. I have tried bypassing the switch, and using different batteries. Is it possible that a servo could do this?

You have a problem. you have to go by the book to find the trouble. Check the position of the RX in relation to the battery, the type of pushrods (metal), their proximity to the antenna. The length of the wires(if you have servos at the back of the plane). Any metal to metal contact (motor throttle), run your antenna outside the fuselage. Could be servo trouble(check that they operate easily by hand, no restriction on movement is allowed, sometimes the rods interfere with one another or the hinges do not allow full travel. Keep trying, you will find the problem. If you dont, do not fly!!!

Are you using 6 volt battery packs?
Does the jitter stop if you extend the trans antenna slightly?
