Trouble with servo

Post by charliechristmas58 » Sat Nov 09, 2013 6:39 pm

This is a new servo i got from CPE. When i turn to the right the wheels well not center they go back to the right even if i try to center them but if i turn to the left they well center. at first i thought that it was because i had the recever in the tank so i took it out and put it up front , no change still did it. any help would be great. i dont know how to up load the video i took but here is a link. (andy help) so at this point im ready to try anything

Possibly a defective servo?...... I would check with Brett (for an opinion) on that one.
Also.... try it with a different radio.

I tried it in two other trucks and it works fine so that rules out bad servo, im going to redo everything and see what that does. :evil:

Reversed wires some where? If it works, and you have checked it on other set ups, then I know you will work out the kinks.

My guess is that you piched a wire somewhere or there was something on the truck causing interfearance.
