    Servo Question

    Howdy All
    I just bought a HS-805BB hitec servo. I have other servo's working fine but this just goes a few degrees forward and backward when I send information to it. I can rotate it gently and it's not stuck. Is this common? Is it broken?
    I really need this to work!

    Thanks
    Doug

    RE: Servo Question

    Can you test it with a servo driver/tester? If you have, and the same tester worked fine with other servos, and you checked/rechecked the connections without success, you must have a bad servo. If you are using a receiver, switch it to another channel which you KNOW is working - if it doesn't work there, bad servo. If it DOES work in another channel, there could be a problem with the receiver.

    Hope this helps...Chris

    RE: Servo Question

    The 805 has the potential to draw a lot of current. What are you using to send control pulses to the servo?

    RE: Servo Question

    Hi, All
    Thanks for your help. Ispoke with the Manufacturer and he thought it was defective. Just my luck. I tried everything. The current was adequate. The servo driver drives other servos correctly.
    Thankx
