Finally got my 6100T/6100G combo today. Installed everything and applied power. The tail servo is emitting a fairly loud buzz, even with no input from the TX. Also, I've noticed that servo travel isn't great. Any suggestions? Faulty servo perhaps?

tail servos are generally pretty noisy.

have you adjusted the end points on the gyro itself?

Ditto
The buzz is normal for this gyro/servo combo. I use this combo on my Stratus and it's tail mechanism is as smooth as.
There has been no ill effect and current draw is in the normal range.

Remember to follow the instructions as this gyro "has" to be setup in rate mode first, before switching into HH.

Thanks for the replies... guess I'm just not used to digital servos. Still find it odd however that the servos throw rate seems far reduced compared to others. Anyway...

Cheers,
James

The servo throw should not be reduced, but as already mentioned, it is set in the gyro itself, NOT in your TX.

The manual is in a kind of "chinese english".
So check page 10 on the english part.
Limit Set is the one to adjust in the gyro to increase/decrease throw.
It's adjustable for both sides of the throw, so that you are able to set maximum throw for both, left and right.
Not all gyros can adjust it individual....this one can.
Don't forget....your LTS-6100G servo is rated for 4.8Vdc only
So check the screen of the gyro what voltage the gyro is seeing.

Man... I'm running a 6v pack; looks like I'll need a regulator. Thanks again.
