The radio box could be part of the problem but if it has the servo that I'm thinking that it may have, a Futaba 3003, it could be most of the trouble too. I've run these in both boats and trucks and have had a lot of the problems that you're describing. The funny thing is that it's identical to the S-148 in every way as far as torque. speed and size yet they seem to be 2 completely different servos in the reliability factor.
Check the carb barrel for a build-up of gunk causing the sticking. Unhook the linkage to see if the carb is sticking and not the servo hanging up. Spray the carb down with an automotive carb cleaner but do it outdoors as it is very flammable.

did you get any water in the radio box. if so like ron said it might be your servo when they get wet they tend to corrode and do other not so good thing that cuase it to lock up like that (it happened to me before), my solution was to get new servos and plasti-dip them (same as rubberize it) and gunk white grease in the gears.
