Default Glitching!

I jsut set up a new hummingbird copter, with Futaba 6 channel reciever and a hitec eclipse 7 transmitter. Im getting some bad glitching comming for the helicopter, the trottle will go on its own, and the stick will change too, no throttle off and on.. I have the gyro, reciver, and mixer all next to eachother and the motor is 2cm away. All the wires for everything at next to eachother too. I dont think the control is low on battery, I jsut charged it and only used it for 10 min! im about to replace the battery with a 1800ma for the transmitter. I checked the RX crystal and is in there tight. any ideas?!??!

Make sure your receiver antenna wire is not routed anywhere near any of the other electronics.

If any of the servo or battery wiring is of the parallel wiring type, try twisting the wires so each set forms a spiral. Don't keep straight wires closely parallel to each other.
