Unhappy FUTABA JIG.....

hey,


im running lrps new vector brushless system, unfourtunately i havent been able to run it yet due to a few complications. Since i really admire and like Ryan Maifields racing, and car setups i figured i would go with his exact b4 setup. Only problem was i couldnt go with the futaba 9350, as my hobby store didnt carry it. Anyway ended up going with the 9451? And noticed a severe glitching issue. Motor would randomly run, servo would whip back and fourth uncontrollably, and then would randomly disconnect. To my suprise i found that if i unplugged the servo from my spektrum pro reciever the issue went away. I tried the crappy servo that spektrum gives you when u buy the dx2 and the problem went awaY?

Is this a common issue with Brushless setups and or Futaba Servos. If thats the case, boo to Futaba!!!

You need the spektrum cap to plug into your reciever. its a BEC issue with LRP stuff. Its not a futaba issue more of a spektrum/LRP compatibality issue. Its a an easy fix.

I didn't know LRP and Spektrum had compatability problems. My LRP stuff works great with Futaba FASST.

Default interesting

yeah, i looked at that voltage diode from spektrum. Do you think the receiver is loosing voltage only with that servo and not with the one that came with the spektrum radio? I just tend to know people who have the same setup and i dont see those diodes in there car?

I had the same problem with a futaba 9451 and spektrum. I changed to a JRz9000s and the glitching went away. I have since got rid of the spektrum and now use Futaba FASST with my 3pk and JRz9000s with a GTB (non spread spektrum) with no glitching at all.
