Default 9C Short Loss of Control

Has anyone experienced very short loss of control (1 second or less) with their Futaba 9C in PPM mode? Control loss occurrs sporadically 2 to 4 minutes apart. If so do you have a fix?

Does it happen on more than one RX? A momentary loss of power would take more than a second to recover if it were the TX. The same loss of power to the PPMRX could result in a short duration lockout. If this is happening on more than one plane, I would be sending the TX in for service.

Default RE: 9C Short Loss of Control

I am using the Weatronic 12Ch Tx module and it happens on both my receivers on a bench test. Today I borrowed a 9C transmitter from a friend and no loss of control using his transmitter. I feel reasonably certain it is my 9C encoder causing the problem. It appears my 9C encoder is cutting off the pulse train for 1/2 to a full second about every 2 to 4 minutes.
