Default Hitec servos problems.....

I have a Hitec servo that chatters when I bind it with my JR Z-1? It works fine with the R-1 but the Z-1 makes it crazy? I am using the DSM module and receiver. All are brand new. Anyone ever had this sort of thing happen with a Hitec servo? Thanks

try setting up your car on a different model in your radio. Make sure you reset the model from the start.

Also check the servo for any bare or cut wires. If there's any contact with the bare or cut wires on the carbon, graphite, or aluminum of the car it'll make it act funky.

You could also try to re-bind your spektrum module and receiver.

While they used to do that, their website now states that it's a flat $45 fee to fix anything not under warranty.

The same thing happens with my Hitec servo, the fix is to take the radio of high speed response and put it on to normal response, there is a switch under the module on the back of the radio.
