badraptor,

did you start with a fresh "test" model in your radio to make sure all tweaks were out of it? Just wondering, I had to take my stuff pretty far out of spec to get it to even start to exhibit signs of becoming notchy or have steps.. It still wasnt chattering the swashplate but it was different responding.

Not with the first set, but I did with the replacement set just to make sure. If it is something in the rest of my set-up for the life of me I cant figure it out. I run pretty much the exact same equipment everyon else does. The replacement set has only been hooked up to a Rx to check for the notchiness. I am thinkin the shop I got them from get a few bad sets. They were bought in a bundle of 3 not individually, marked "not for invidual sale".

I dont run any Align servos but I've got 2 sets of InoLab servos that does exactly the same thing with 'steppy' movement. I've got it running on a 12FG FASST running 2048resolution on the R608FS but I'm gonna try a R617FS 1024resolution 2.4ghz rx and also on PCM G3 with R5114DPS receiver.

I'm pretty sure its a compatibility issue so I'll report back on Monday

Not sure what this "steppy" movement is about, kinda weird.

With over 150 flights on the DS610's running at 8V mine aren't "steppy" at all.

I was checking them out today at the field to see if I could replicate this but no luck.

I did have something similar but it was due to a dry mainshaft, a little triflow on it and everything was perfect.

glitches
installed 3x ds610 on my 700 for cycli, when i maidened i noticed a little swash movement caused by one servo, hovered for a while and the heli jumped up and jown violently so i did not took any more chances and landed.

inspection came out with one servo acting like crazy when i placed a hex screwdriver on the rear side.

the other two servos are fine.

i then installed my electronics a bit different and tried to secure any other posibilities of failure but still the same effect!!

any ideas or advices are kindly accepted.

rx ar9000 with two sats.

badraptor, wow sounds like kit pulls. Not that it should matter a servo is a servo but thinking you are getting two sets of bad ones back to back or at all for that matter would upset ones confidence. I dont have near the number of flights on mine that Mike does but so far so good. I am very pleased with them and thankful I did not have your experience.

Would love to hear your results helirulz.. I am out of options to go forward or backwards in compatibility except I guess for voltage I think I can step up to 8v without any trouble but I dont think it would improve what I have.

baddraptor,

My current setup: JR 9303 2.4GHz, AR9000, 3 DS610's, Sahara reg set to 6.0V.

Saturday, after rebuild, put 3 flights on my 700. It flew great!

RCNUT

when did you buy your servos?? Were they marked "not for individual sale"?

There is another post in the radio servo forum with the same issue I was having. Wonder if a few bad ones slipped out.

I did a combo order from GrandRC. They came in Align plastic boxes, sealed with Align stickers on the lid. No mention of "not for resale".

The place you bought them from must have done something to the packaging or got them from some other supplier.....

A friend of mine just got his 700 with Align DS610 servo from GrandRC, same as what I got Align plastic boxes, sealed with Align stickers on the lid.

I also bought 4 Align DS620's for my Outrage from GrandRC, Align plastic boxes, sealed with Align stickers on the lid.

Where/who did you order your servo from?????

RCNut got his servos about 3 weeks or so ago. Mine are from last fall/winter timeframe. Plus 2 more sets since then with no problems like you're experiencing at least that I can tell.

I put my swash leveler on my 2nd Rex700 last night to recheck somethings. I was able to use epa to get rid of some interaction at full negative collective just fine. A few points and she was golden.

I'm at a loss to explain what it could be for your setup. I've tried in the past. JR 8717's, Hitec 5245(I think-they were a cheaper digital metal gear servo), Futaba 9252's and BLS451's, Airtronics 94758's, and now these Align servos for cyclics. The JR's for ME personally were a waste of $. They may be the cat's meow for alot of people, but at my skill level I can't tell a difference, except in the wallet. My favorite servo's continue to be the Futaba Brushless, but for the $ these Aligns are great. I'm running regulated DS620's in my Outrage 550 at 7.2v. DS610's in my Rex700 at straight 2s lipo through an AR7100 Rx, and have DS610's at 6v regulated in a 600ESP build I've yet to fly. I've since recommended these servos to several friends including RCNut, and our Friend Matt who just got a Rex700 , and DS610's.

So far I can find no fault in these servos other than they are a bit noisey on the bench with geartrain noise. Other than that, they are very fast, strong and seem to center very well. Time will continue to tell if they hold up etc..

I'm eager to try the Savvox brushless servos when they hit the market, maybe Align will rebrand those as well. Good excuse to buy another heli right To test more servos haha!!!

lol
yeah no more "He's got 2 Aurora's" at dinner OK???

I will say I do think the Aurora does deserve premium servos. Those brushless Futabas in my new Aurora look like great servos to me

I can't wait for the first test flight. I would like to see how those BLS 252's feel.

OOOK, no more "he has 2 Aurora's!" It's a good thing I didn't mention your heli account balance! That would of left a mark for sure!LOL

I checked all 7 Align servo cases and none of them says "not for resale", couldn't find anything like that anywhere on the case.
