Default jitter

will the GLITCH STOP/NOISE TRAP at http://www.emsjomar.com/ "mask" my problem with jitters from long leads and too many cables or will it solve it?
thanks for your input

No experience with this particular device, but if it actually keeps motor noise off your reciever, as it claims (and i have no reason to think it wouldn't) it will do exactly what you would want from it.
it won't mask the problem, it will attack it right at the source. i might order a couple and try it out for myself.

Shmo, looks like the Glitch Stop/Noise Trap you mentioned works on a single channel and is placed in line between the receiver and the offending servo or long lead, right? I dunno........

I see you've got a JR radio, modern radios don't have problems with long leads like older radios did, and a proper set up doesn't require chokes, traps, etc. to be reliable. If you've got jitters, I'd look elsewhere for the problem. Tell us more about your airborne radio setup (receivers, battery type and voltage, type, number and age of switch (or switches), servo type number and placement, length of leads, antennae placement, engine, and if it's a gas engine, throttle servo position, throttle pushrod type and length, etc.). Jitters only when engine is running or whenever radio is turned on? Is there a particular servo lead that you can disconnect and stop the jitters?

The main thing is that I'd ELIMINATE the problem, rather than cover it up.

99% of this type problem (jitters) is because of to small a gage wire on long runs or poor connectors. Any excessive voltage drop in either the positive or negative lead can cause the servos to jitter. In general glitch busters and similar items are just window dressing which does not cure the problem, may even intensify them. Rod

Default Long Leads

Hi,I what I did was to use A 22 gauge sheilded compuiter wire.You ground the sheild at the sorce at the battery side only,(negitive only),the side at the servo you just leave it unconected or open.What this does is to shun all the interfearing signals back to negitive side of the battery.The main problem is when the servo leads are the same lenght as the antenna and to small A wire like the other person said.You can get this with as mush as three to I think about fifteen leads in it.I did this to my bi plane and the range check went from 30 feet to 125 feet.Right now I'm doing a jet with a 13 lead wire then I bring it down to a 3 wire lead in some places.This wire is stiffer but cheap and you can buy it at you local electronic store.I solder and heat shrink it.If you are good at soldering you will have no problems.This realy does work.-Take care-Mac
