Continuous Rotation Servo

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I have modified a Tower Pro MG945 servo to rotate forward and reverse continuously. I removed the mechanical stop for the gears and pulled out the potentiometer so that it cannot feedback mechanically. When I try to fine adjust the pot to get the servo to stop when the control stick is centred, it is almost impossible to get it to remain stopped. If I run it forward/reverse ,it runs OK but never quite stops. I've seen several U tubes on doing this mod but no mention of this problem. Is there a fix? Is it my Tx/Rx (Skysport 4)Thanks for any help.
