Blade CP servo question

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hello All,

I have a question for you micro heli gurus.

I have found that the forward most servo on my CP constantly cycles up and down a few degrees when the heli's battery is plugged in and no control inputs. (Tx and heli powered up as per manufactures instructions)

The result of this is the heli will yo-yo in hover and is now what most would consider to be uncontrollable. I did a little troubleshooting by switching another servo lead on the 4 in 1 to see if the problem would migrate to the other servo thinking this might indicate a problem with the 4 in 1. Still, the same forward most servo did its little dance up and down with the other two servos rock solid (no control inputs what so ever).

My limited experience tells me that my problem is the servo. Am I correct in this assumption, or is there something else I might have missed?

Thanks for any help any of you might be able to lend!
