Obviously the people at Futaba will say Futaba, but it really doesn't matter. Find a servo that best fit's your requirments and run it. I run KO, JR, Futaba, Ace, and Hitec and they all work.

See now, I'm having a problem with my E-Maxx after I put the R603FF FASST receiver in it, the steering servo vibrates. Not like it's just making buzzing sounds but you can physically see it moving back and forth about 5, and it doesn't make any difference where you have the steering wheel unless it's at full lock. I've tried putting different servos in the steering slot, rebinding the receiver to the radio, nothing seems to fix it. I've got another R603FF in my GT2 and it works just fine, but every servo I plug into this receiver's steering slot shakes. The shifter servo works fine, and that's the same $12 POS Traxxas servo that came with the truck back when I got it in 2001. Could it have something to do with the radio settings or did I get a bad receiver?

It's the radio settings. Which radio are you using A 3PK or a 3PM? You are probably trying to run in HRS mode. Try PCM. If that doesn't work, there's one more, I think it's PPM. This is for the 3PK, not sure about the 3PM and how to change modes but I think you can.

http://http://www.futaba-rc.com/manuals/index.html Go to this link and download the 3PKS manual and read this manual. It expains it. Read page 42 of the manual in particular.

This is a 3PM 2.4GHz, and yeah it's currently set to HRS mode. My only other option is PPM

If the servo is twitching in HRS, try the PPM.

First... Had a M11/Spektrum pro and sold it to buy a 3Pks and Fasst system. Why? Feel and comfort as others have stated. I had no complaints with the M11, but it just wasn't as comfortable as the 3Pks
Second... I had the same problem with my 3Pks as above, it was in Hrs mode. I switched to PPM, and everything was fine...

The 80th user cannot play. However you have the 79 on 2.4, the 30 on 75, and the 6 on 27. That's 115 vehicles on and running at the same time.
