Default Blue bird servo glitching and shutting down speedy

hi i have a brand new bluebird superspeed servo and it has been turning then shutting down the speedy then turning the speedy back on,i am using nosram Tomakawke reverse 18t speedy,epic 27t motor and helios with spektrum.
I have tried it with a different radio(jrxs3) and it works fine

Also all my stuff (servo,radio,reciever,spektrum,ESC) is all brand new.

Hi
Do you know if your speedo has a radio priority circuit? Seems that the servo is getting so much current that stops the speedo... just change the receiver and check what happens.... hope it helps

Hi, i had the same problem and to fix the problem was to take the servo's supply wire staight to battery maybe not the best solution as the servo will wear quicker but its a fix anyway...

Its more than likely that the BEC in your reciever is not providing enough voltage to the Spektrum reciever, and its shutting down. Usually it can happen with QC2 ESC's though.

The fix is the spektrum plugin capacator that you connect to your reciever, contact Model Flight in Adelaide if you would like to buy one.
