Default Glitching

Using lower wind mods in my TC3 i found glitching at the low end. Im using a lrp 7.1 hitec flash 4 pro and a ko 713 servo. My theory on this is when i accelerate hard, or use the start assist that the voltage drops slightly causing the glitching, the car doesnt accelerate and stutters for a second or so. Whereas if you apply the power slower its fine. Anyone else able to give me any ideas? Thanks

Is that KO a digital?

My dad had problems with glitching with a Hitec 5925 Digi Servo when he was using the LRP 7.1....It glitched with everything else too but it glitched the worse with a LRP 7.1.....It was probably his radio system though....Are you using a Hitec transmitter? I found it kinda funny that a Hitec digital glitched with a Hitec radio

Maybe Hitec radios don't produce enough of a signal to overcome the digital servo? Or could it be synthesized radios don't produce enough of a signal? Are you using a crystaled radio system or synthesized?

I came to the power conclusion as when i race stock its fine, just was at a larger track and fancied some mod racing and ran into problems, using an orion core 11 double. Its a normal FET SERVO 7.2volt - 0.10sec/5.3kg about half the price of the full blown KO ones.

If you are using a personal transponder, try unplugging it and see if the glitching persists.

A detail picture of your car would help out to pin point your problem.

It could just be that your motor springs have lost tension or your brushes are too short. When I tested light springs on my monster it caused a stuttering effect under hard accelleration out of corners. Going back to a harder spring fixed the problem.

Also I've found that if I don't twist my motor wires my car glitches like crazy..

I would twist the power wires to the motor and battery. Make sure no wires are near the antenna, and of course make sure your batts are not touching a graphite chasis.

When you use full power, the magnetic field around the power wires is the biggest. This will create the glitch. Fule tubing from the radio antenna wire to the antenna holder may help if you have a graphite chasis. Tape the sides of the graphite chasis where the the batts could be touching.

I even had a glitch from a brush shunt touching my graphite axle.

Perhaps you could try another Tx and Rx at different times.

Good luck.

Try using a pair of ferrite clamps. One on the negative wire onthe motor and another one on the negative wire on the battery. I've got mine from team muchmore.
