What causes servo twitch?

One of my servos is sporadically twitching. My hunch is that my radio is too close to the heli or that some other bit of electronics is interfering with it some how. I'll continue to test as opportunities arise. Maybe the servo is just crap! I don't know. I know it's not an uncommon experience.

Can anyone explain this?

Thanks!

Yes, this is one possibility.

Also try using another port to confirm.

if it's just one servo it's likely the servo (bad pot ?) or the servo connection. Wiggle the wires, tap the servo and see if it changes.

Do two things:

(1) Put that servo into a different port

(2) Plug a known working servo in the old port.

Now see if you can recreate the problem. If the new servo twitches in the old port, the you have a port/connection problem. If the old servo twitches in the new port, then you have a servo problem. Hope this helps........Ron
