I had the jesus bolt break in my titan during a tail slide, as a result the heli was totally destroyed But luckily the electronics were ok, or so I thought! Today I put the same electronics in a new titan and I noticed the tail would start to shudder as soon as I increased the throttle. I went through the gyro setup again just to be sure and all seems ok. Do u think it's a servo issue because I don't have much experience when it comes to checking the servo? Although this is my second GY611 and I'm pretty sure it's not the gyro setup.

hi Helijockey
it would be worth checking your gears in the servo
i had a similer experience and found i had 1 tooth missing in the gears

Plug the servo directly into the receiver, power your system and move the rudder stick..... as you move the stick slowly from extreme to extreme, place a load on the servo horn with your other hand...... You'll find out quickly if the gears are stripped....

If you get full movement both ways under load, your servo is OK....

9256 servo
This servo will only work correctly if driven directly from the GY611 or GY601 gyros. Don't plug it directly into your receiver unless you want to destroy it. steve.

hey
i don't think it will DESTROY the servo but it is not recommended....use your own judgement:

Hi guys,I changed the servo but still had the same problem so I used another amp and gyro and all was well I guess the amp or gyro or both were damaged in the crash
