use the 148 for throttle and use the 537's on controls and Micheal at raptortechniques.com is a great guy and has very sound advice. Go to his site and read all you can!

Ideally you want matching servo's for your cyclics, so put the 537s on you cyclic control, put the 148 on throttle and then the 3001 on collective

eeeeky, you should be getting another 537 and other stuff I sent you any time now. So you could wait and put 537 on the throttle also if you wanted.. Good luck!

Make sure you check over the wire to make sure you dont have any bare spots as far as the glitches go... But I dont know why it wouldnt work no more than 3 ft away.. Thats not good!!

eeeky,
I just read through your old post to see what rx and tx you have.
But while reading, I noticed this!

Kyle wrote:
Futaba(FP-R127DF) FM that I got a really good deal on(so I dont mind parting with it). It needs the antenna wire re-attached
Did you do as he mentioned and fix (re-attach) the wire?
And if you did, ummm apparently you didnt do it right..
Im betting thats where your problem is...

yes i reattached it, but the problem is i changed the xtal in the Tx module and towerhobbies says that, that will cause exessive glitching! so ive now got to order a ch 12 DC Rx xtal for my rx!!

Wow eeeeky..I didnt expect to see this from you already!!=
That is a very minor problem.. Your in for all kinds of fun stuff like that.
I thought you were buying a new rx x-tal, not tx x-tal or I would have mentioned something to you... Sounds like your getting closer though.
Hang in there!
