Sounds like you may have gotten a bad one. There seems to be a 30 day limited warranty & there is always this

Customer Service & Tech Support from HobbyPartz.com, at RCDiscuss.com

It could be a bad solder connection, bad plug or many other things. Reading up most seem to work well & can be rather sensitive & the ones with problems do all kind of things.

Keep us posted on this, they are currently out of stock, so I will have to wait to order one.

Contacted hobbypartz chat.....
they told me to re-ship it to them and they would replace - refund them
that would cost me the actual price of the item... what a waste



I want to know something
I managed to make everything to my liking... it's pretty weird
I have a hs5646wp waterproof hi voltage servo (no bec installed maybe thats the problem dunno)

The only way i could do it it's like this

TRIM L 92
SUBTRIM L 20

epa L 110
EPA R 67

..... something isn't centered and it's very bad maybe even the servo maybe?
thats not right....

dunno but hell i have full throw still and thats not normal if you ask me normally with trims up like that no way i can do anything like that

I tried with a other remote & receiver it did the same thing...
and my second led unit is the same same problem or ''similar'' all on the right side weird ill try it on a other servo just for the hell of it

" (no bec installed maybe thats the problem dunno) "


Ya know I wondered about voltage today. A fully charged 2 cell lipo is around 8.4 volts, there is a 6 volt max. It would have too That is most likely the culprit. Can you try it with a bec set between 4.8 & 6 volts

I was testing this on a 5000 mah 2s 60c gens ace fully charged


I dunno if it's enough to power the led , servo , esc , motor , and winch (which is never on anyways just idling)

It is most definitely. Even at its critical low voltage after discharge is too high.

THanks TOM MAR for helping me


I think i found a solution tonight
let me know what you think

Since centering a servo horn perfectly 90 degrees and having both wheels straight is almost humainly impossible this is why we have SUB TRIM and TRIMS

I decided to put the wheels purposely more on the left side and it made sens cause the horn was almost 90degress
thought the wheel were very off center i went and put 87 subtrim which is very high but considering i didn't put any TRIMS this shouldn't affect full throw

and so far problem solved!

Good work & good luck.
