I have developed a glitch on my Shuttle. It is affecting the collective - gives a negative collective input lasting just for a second. Can defitiely be interesting at inopportune times!

I've checked for loose screws, nuts & bolts, and metal on metal contact, or anything else that may cause RF interference.

It has steadiyly gotten worse and seems to be increased with higher headspeeds. Could a bad main shaft bearing be causing this?

Yes a bad bearing anywhere in your bird could cause it. The other possibilty is a bad reciever or servo. One of the local RC electronic geniuses tests for reciever problems by resting an engraver on the reciever and watching for glitches. He says you'll almost always spot the problem.

Good Luck,

I'll give that a try. Since its always the collective servo that glitches.
