Default RE: Tail Servo Fluttering!!!!

No apology required! And I'm no expert. Sometimes, no matter how much experience, we need someone to help sort out the trees from the forest....To answer your suggestion - I am using a 2700mah NiMh, borrowed from another GS airplane that is fine. Yes, without extensions, it still bounces.

Another friend suggested that the 8231's weren't powerful enough to HOLD the servo against it's own inertia at center. He was right.

Changed to 8611A's on both elevators - problem "cured". It is AMAZING that elevators on a 29% airplane are heavy enough to need this kind of holding torque. Amazing.

Thanks for you thoughts - this has been a tail-chaser.[>:][>:]
