Default KO Propo 3014 Servo Problem

well i picked this servo up today and got it put in my RC18MT..but for some reason now when i power it up it just makes a hard right and wont move from there...i tried reversing it and get nothing...i also tried the Steering Trim and all it does is move about 2mm when i rotate it the full way...

i am using a Mamba 25ESC and 5400 motor and the stock TX and RX....

do you need a special radio to use Digital Servos?

anyone know why it makes hard right upon power up?

Try it on another ESC and see if it works.
If it does, you just need to get more power to it.
Perhaps a Cap on the reciever.
If that doesn't work than your out of luck, your ESC won't work with the Servo.
Also, Maybe your Servo is bad?
I would definitely try another ESC to see if that is the problem. Perhaps a friends or another of your cars.
