Hi, I just recently acquired a Robbe Schluter Scout 60 II with a JR Pro X-347 controller. When I turn power on to the helicopter the servos twitch once then hold, if I power the transmitter the servos sit and twitch uncontrollably. I realize the technology behind the x-347 is really old but I was wanting to test fire the motor to see if it is in good order. I move the sticks and knobs when the servos are twitching and I don't notice any reaction from anything, i'm not sure if this is normal behavior or not. I just don't want to fire the engine and have the heli do something crazy. The machine is in amazing condition and I was told it has under 4 hours of actual run time on it but has been in storage for a long time. I will likely replace the transmitter and receiver eventually but didn't know if due to how the heli is acting now if that needs to be before I fire the motor or if this is typical behavior. I am new to the hobby and have a couple rc planes but this is my first heli, and my first nitro. I picked the scout up for $150 with a few small extra parts the transmitter and receiver, batteries, glow plug heater, nitro fuel, and chargers along with a fueling and tool/work box/station, is this a decent deal?

Thankyou for any assistance,

A few thing to check.

Check the frequency of the crystal (channel number) of the receiver and the radio and make sure they are on the same channel.

Make sure the correct model is selected in the radio.

What voltage battery are you using, receiver is designed to operate on 4.8 volts.

Extend the antenna out of the radio at least a foot. If it's all the way in it may be shrouding the single.

Power on the radio first and then the helicopter. with no single the receiver may be going into lockout.

Don't forget that the batteries don't last forever. If this heli is as old as the radio -- you should feed it new batteries all around.
