yes the spark plug cap.

his P-40 worked flawless in 2018, in mid August 2019 he ran the P-40 in his backyard to get it ready for the Sept. long weekend.

At the field on the Sept. long weekend is when he noticed the erratic servo movements and that finally lead to using the hose clamp on keep the spark plug cap on so tight and firm and followed by 2 good flights.

Then again it could be Gremlins.

Re: Electronic interference with ailerons

Hi again folks. My problem is solved. I went through every connection to reaffirm they were all fine and connected. Thanks to Ken, I also put a hose clamp on the spark plug cap. The end result is the ailerons were solid. I've flown the plane (quarter scale SE5a) six times and everything continues to work just fine.
Many thanks to all who responded.
