servo interminent

Post by sunseri4819 » Fri Oct 18, 2013 8:10 pm

Im not sure if this is the right section but it is a servo.

I have a nitro buggy and my throttle servo works great but once i start the engine it gets jitteey and acts like its not receiving any signal. Dont know of its a bad servo. Any help?

Thanks

Check that the receiver batteries are new or have a full charge. If that still is the case, then try too move the receiver around too see if there is a spot on the chassis that provides less interference. If that's still the problem, then take the clutch bell off and shim it a little at a time until until it stops. Sometimes the clutch bell can touch the clutches when rotating and cause the jittering like that.

I tried new batteries then i swaped the throttle and steering servo plugs on the reciever and still the same problem. Ill have to look at the clutch bell? What do you use as shims?

Before you check the clutch bell, try looking at the Antennae...if it is touching metal it might be causing the glitch problems. Also make sure your Servo has the rubber isolators mounted if it is mounted to metal. If that does not fix it sad to say but the pot or something on the servo board is going south...

Try disconnecting the linkage from the servo and see if the servo makes a hum noise...when it is powered up...
