    Bad Servo?

    My tornado XPs throttle works then it sticks like right when it fully opened up and dosent go back unless u push it back and then it works again but then sticks again. So is it the servo.

    RE: Bad Servo?

    Seems like the servo to me. You can check by taking it appart and checking the gears.

    I would reccomend an upgrade to a servo with metal gears.

    We just received a few, I'll try to have them up on our website tonight.

    My tornado has radio issues. When it sticks , turn off your transmitter and see what happens.

    RE: Bad Servo?

    hey guys i just wanted to put my input on this.

    I just recently went through the same issue as a few here.

    my throttle servo started to stick in my HIMOTO SYCLONE and i thought it was just the batts were low so i changed them out and tried again, went fine for awhile then it stuck again. took it to my LHS and they checked it out and the throttle servo took a crap for good.
    so i ended up forking the money out and just bought a whole new radio system for it.

    i ended up buying the FUTABA 2PH AM radio system for it, got it in today and installed it, and wow what a big difference it is.
    I mean between just the old servos being kinda slower and the new futaba system. i can offically say that this is an awesome upgrade for your buggies nad or trucks....... here some pix of my syclone, one is of it disassembled and the other fully assembled and ready to rock
