Hey,

So....you're tuning the wheel on your radio then the car has a glitch and the wheels return back to neutral....Is that right?

If so, I'd say its a radio problem, because, if you're wheels are turning, then the servo is fine...and the metal tabs inside your radio aren't getting a good contact so they will glitch and send the default signal to the car. Thats just my guess....do some trouble shooting.

Good Luck.

Thumbs up

If you're glitching, try mounting your receiver on its side.

Get an extra set of electronics (your hobby store should be happy to open a new box and let you try this) and start substituting new items one at a time until you've narrowed down which component is causing the glitch.
