Default RE: Digital Servo Buzz


ORIGINAL: Edwin

While we're on the subject. I've seen digitals (in addition to the buzz) oscillate. The control surfaces were flapping away until air pressure was put on them. Is this normal also?

Its not a good condition. It puts extra strain on the gears and runs down the battery. There could be several causes for it.
1) Linkage binding - Free up the binding.
2) Heavy control surfaces - Static balance the surface.
3) Servo deadband too tight - If Hitec servos open the deadband with the programmer.
4) If two servos are hooked to one surface they could be fighting each other - Match the servos.
