Hello again,

I've made up a croc clip charging lead and I can now charge the TX batteries quite happily, they are 3600mah so hopefully this 2.4 system wont drain them too quickly?

However, I seem to have developed a problem with my steering servo its rather twitchy when I turn the steer wheel, especially when its at the end point. When I release the steer wheel back to neutral it calms down......if I don't turn the steer wheel there is no movement/ twitching so maybe it's not interfererence?? It doesn't do it when I use the old AM radio setup so hopefully the servo isn't busted so I'm unsure what the problem is........the throttle servo had a similar issue but by adjusting the end point/ trims it seems to have stopped but it was with more luck than judgement...

any clues/ opinions always appreciated

cheers

ok wayne check your end point adjustments on the transmitter this may help stop the twitches by limiting the movement but i find i get slight tiches when my controller within a meter of the car,but it settles after a min or 2,i had a funny 5 mins with my controller last weekend where it delayed the movement but once it passed it was ok,the outher thing i noticed is they like lots rx power,so keep them well charged and run 6 volts

Back on this!

I actually tested running the truggy today and the steering/ throttle brake was fine so all seems to be ok. I guess sometimes you can pay too much 'close up' attention to these models.....in this instance the servos making strange humming noises etc......but if turns, screams off and breaks whats the problem??!!

cheers

well i agree that there servo noise,but no problems when on the track or park,so yes it works but the servo noise does take a bit of getting used to
