    RE: problems with eq10 and power spander sport

    Hi Marcelo,
    I am not sure why this is happening either but if all the channel LEDs were on then the Eq10 was receiving valid pulses from the receiver. One thing you did not mention, were the servos running and stationary or were they limp. If they were running and stationary then the Eq10 was output control signals to the servos. In this case, the receiver was not responding to the transmitter. Just to check, you have NOTHING plugged into the battery slot of the receiver, correct. The battery slot on receivers should NEVER be plugged into with any connection from a PowerExpander or PowerSystem. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

    RE: problems with eq10 and power spander sport

    Hi,
    Since you say it happened in a Sport Plus I have to believe its something with your radio. The Sport Plus only buffers the signals. If your receiver was working and getting power from the Sport Plus then there is nothing that would cause the servos to stop working except if the receiver was not work. There is more than can happen in an Eq10 so its more complicated. Any simple PowerExpander like the Sport, Pro, MZ or Sport Plus has just buffers that will always follow the output of the receiver. I think this points to your receiver for what ever reason.

    Also, can you confirm you have NOTHING in the battery slot of the receivers?
