Default New here

New here. Im from texas, 16, and have an ofna ultra GT lx, the older one with the .21. Its been sitting under a bench for about a year now, but i just cleaned it up and am going to get it running again. I have a problem with the steering servo though, it has no resistance to turning when there is now power to it like normal servos would. It doesnt make that "servo sound" Can i fix it or do i have to get a new one? Looks like a cool site.

its the standard airtronics servo. The gas/brake servo has resistance power or not.

I would have picked up a new servo. That servo is just going to strip out again more then likely. Drop the $40 bucks on a high torque servo, it will make a huge differance and give you some real turning power.
