I need your input on a few things. I have a friend who recently installed the 760 in his 700 and it performs okay (better than the 770), but since then, he's had an annoying glitching problem. Actually, neither he or I have any idea if it even is a "glitch" or some sort of surging problem with the SZ for sure.
I am curious if any of you have ever had any issues with your SZ dropping RPM's suddenly and then returning to normal within a few seconds. Glow plug has been swapped, the head is tight and there are no known leaks. We've tried tuning the motor and nothing seems to help. Maybe the pump is crapping out. The engine it's self is fairly new and only has about 5 gallons through it since last September. He's always flown it slightly rich.
With that said, I came to the conclusion that there probably is an 2.4ghz RF problem somewhere between the 9303 and the Rx and the heli might be going into failsafe. The thing about that is, the heli still has full cyclic and rudder response so, technically, it's not in failsafe right? He has his failsafe set for the engine to enter idle and all surfaces are to report to neutral. In a full lock out nothing would should respond right? The wires have been checked for frays and loose plugs as well. So, that brings the problem back to the engine. In any case you probably have some insight that might prove to be quite useful. The 700 is grounded in fear of a fatal failure if it actually turns out to be a RF issue.
Thanks in advance for your input guys
