Default Hey pops, what vehicle was it in?

I have it installed in a Reflex NT. There is plenty of cushion in the linkage, so I don't understand why I'm having this problem. The last time it was Repaired, Hitec installed a new amplifier board. I'm going to send it out this week as the warranty ends in May/03.
I have a 5925 for steering in my electric car and it has been trouble free so far.
I also offer that I have NEVER had a problem with any of my Hitec Receivers (5).

Thank you for the reply.

I had the same prob with a HS945MG super speed. The gears aren't stripped... the motor just runs non-stop without any movement from the main gear. Im sending it in as soon as I can get some more money.

These servos are killin me!!

Send them in to us and explain that you no longer have the receipt, we'll fix them up for you. TTYL.

Pops, throttle duty is real hard on servos, any make. I've seen them all fail around here. Most other brands won't even do warranty work on them if they know its been used in the throttle/brake app. My 5625 has been in duty in my xxx-nt for 2 years now, but I use the brake to act like electric drag. It may be my driving style, but I rarely hit the brakes for full lock. Send it in and we'll fix it up for you. TTYL.
