This is a first for me, this servo is brand new and I noticed after about the 5th flight on a new heli the servo is extremely hard to move when the power is off and it gets hot and makes a funny grinding sound when u move the control, it moves fine and everything. I have three on my heli the others dont make this sound or get hot just from moving the controls under no load. It even has an electric burnt smell going so I think its in the process of burning up.

Any thoughts? Will JR replace this servo for free if its new?

I have had this problem. DO NOT FLY THAT SERVO. Send it back to JR and they will replace it for free if you have a receipt.

Had the same with one of my Hv's and the said the motor was fried and sent a new one. Man was I lucky. I flew with for around 10 times before I sent it in.

Just send it back to Horizon. They will take care of you. No way is it worth it to continue to fly...
