Default JR 650ZM + Spektrum = lockout?

I'm testing out electronics on my t4, and have foud an interesting problem. If I snap the steering back to center to quickly, my receiver loses power momentarily (the light does go out) and then switches back on. I've never seen this before, any ideas?

Yes, I've switched receivers. Same problem.

If you're running a LRP speedo (at least my experience with the Q2 Comp and the Q Sphere) and a spektrum receiver, you need to use a capacitor in the battery slot of the receiver.

Scott and I have ran across a lot of this of late...the radio needs to be in normal mode (switch behind the tx module).

I tried the again with a keyence zero ESC and the servo worked absolutely fine. Guess I'll pick up that capacitor this week.

I'll check the switch, but I'm pretty sure it's on normal
