Default Servo problem ???WTF Please

At practice tonight after about 4 8 minute runs the steering servo decided to stop working, I unplugged the lead and it worked. I reckon it is overheating as it sticks on and then releases. I cant hear any servo stalling noises.

It happened last week aswell but cleared after waitng 10 minutes.

Any ideas. Also the ESC led flashes slighlty when I turn the steering, indicating power drain???

what esc and servo are you using? maybe if the servo is a high-end one, i.e. ko propo, the fets are overheating. this would cause the servo to "stick" b/c the servo cant turn the wheels. is your servo saver to tight? check for any tight spots in the steering rack / links.
