Are these JR servos? If so, if you try to use too much adjustment (full servo travel in transmitter and a lot of Eq10 adjustments) you go past where the servo can handle and it acts funny. It goes dead in one direction and tries to go way too far in the other direction. You should never use full transmitter travel when also using a servo adjusting device (Matchbox, Equalizer, Eq10).

Yes, back off your transmitter travel 10% from maximum. Reset the Eq10 channel. Get your mechanical linkage setup so that you get very close to your intended travel without using the Eq10 and max-10% of your transmitter travel. Only use the Eq10 to tweak your travel, not make major adjustments. You plane should be setup mechanically correct before you start doing electronic adjustments.
