2) Remove the Fail Safe from the loop. They can fail electronicly and cause the symtoms you described.
3) A BIG Crash can damage the internals of a Receiver. So that that into consideration.
1 i'm positive they are fresh, tried 2 set and tested both sets to make sure of that
2 even with the fail safe off it stops working and would a failsafe cause the loss of power to both servos?
3 well i think the biggest crash I had was into a curb head on but it wasn't going that fast
i took a voltmeter thing and tested the reciever output with the power on and each channel showed in the mid 5's for power so is there something in the 3rd connection/ wire that could cause this?
