Default Servo twitch

I am having an issue with my freewing super scorpion. I have the model completely setup and ready to maiden however I am hesitant to because I am getting a twitch with all servos at the same time every 30 sec - 2 min. Itís not a huge amount but it is pretty noticeable. My radio system is a spektrum dx7s with an ar-8000 receiver, I also have an AL3 gyro installed. The issue happens with the gyro on or off and with a full or dead battery. I have checked all servo connections and battery connections and found zero issues. I donít know if I am missing something or if I am just being to paranoid. I have spent a good chunk of time repainting the bird and would hate to put it in the dirt. Any suggestions would be great thank you!

I have that plane but have not experienced what you describe. I use a different brand radio so that is one difference. Could it be a Spektrum issue of some sort? Possibly an antenna direction issue? If you step away say 10 feet or more does it still do the same thing?

Has this radio and receiver worked properly in a different plane before? If not, I'd try hooking them up to other servos to see what they do. If the problem persists, send them to Spektrum to be checked out.
