Servo travel on 14MZ
There must be a really simple answer cause I just can't see it and its hard to get anyone simpler than me

I am setting up some on/off switches for the nav lights on my MD500e using micro switches activated by servo arms with balls attached

I've set them up on ch 11 and 12 using the sliders

one of them only travels from 100% to 0% then stops ie. when the slider reaches the center of its travel (clicks). the other goes from 100 to 0 to 100 as it is supposed to.

on the servo movement test the servo stops when it reaches 0

ATV are set both the same 100% and limits are set to 130%

Any ideas

Cheers
Joe

OK, I'll look at mine later, the only thing I can think of is under the system screen you have the stick, (or switch?, I don't have my Tx with me) menu, it may be set to MOM in there. The other thing is under 'end points' (atv) you have two boxs with numbers in for each side travel, the two inner figures are for servo movements, the outer two are for absolute limits and these two are normally at 130% by default. If it is at 0 on one side then even if the atv figure is at 100% the outer number will limit the movement. Do you have a facility to e-mail me a copy of the model file, I could load it into my Tx and check it out?

BTW, what does it show on the servo monitor screen when you move the offending slider? If that moves 100% both ways then it may be the servo itself.

Sorry for delay in replying I've been on the road

Both values read the default values 130 an 100 on the test the offending servo goes from 100 to 0 on the bottom but there it stops - no indicator past zero
Its got me stuffed

I'll swap out the servo when I get back at the end of the week

Cheers
