Default servo

I put a new throttle servo on my hpi nitro rs4 , when the brake is applied the servo does not go back to the neutral postion, in throttle postion on it does.
Any ideas?

ummm, ur servo could probably be wearing out or getting old. U could try putting a return spring(something to help pull it back like a rubber band or sumthin) but then the servo might not be able to pull the brake at all.

Mine does the same. I think it's to do with the spring in the servo saver not being tight enough. I read somewhere, to clamp it into a tigher radius with some pliers and see how that goes. Personally, I am going to buy a new one from TowerHobbies.

That's the one I am looking at getting.

My Hitec servo does the same thing. Adjust your servo horn to a neutral postion first. I fixed mine with a throttle return spring. I'm running a 645 as a throttle break servo for my truggy.
