I'm having radio problems. My servos glitch every once in a while causing unsettling flying issues. " Dont Want To Crash " Is it possible for the reciever battery to cause a problem? Its an older battery. Its Fully Charged but may it be cause for radio glitching?

Look for loose connections, bypass your switch, shake your wiring etc.

What receiver?

72 or 2.4?

Batteries are DC, they don't produce glitches.

Loose connections, metal to metal rubbing, bad bearings, and improper antenna and component installation produce glitches.

It could be bearing related too.

If it is 72pcm, it is most likely faulty wiring as interference causes temporary pause (much like seizure) as the digital scramble causes the processor to not do anything.

If it is 72ppm, any noise maker can cause servos to jump as the processor will interpret noise AND signal to servo output.

To rule out faulty wiring, use hot glue to tie down all flex points. Hot glue receiver the connectors, wires to frame, etc. Hot glue comes off very easy by pulling on it so don't worry about it. Add glue to servo wire to connectors also.

Oh No
Well i changed the battery and tested the glitching was gone. Flew for about 15 mins no problems. Landed refueled charged and toped off reciever battery, 5 mins in i got a major glitch like someone turned on a radio with my freq. there was no other 72mhz radios there that day only 2.4's well unfortunally it ended in a crash. I was able to control it enough to bring it in resulting in a tail strike only damaging the slider arm and shaft assembly. No bent boom no other broken parts. I was glad the grass was wet and soft for it was what saved my carbon blades. stuck them into the grass about half way up a 550mm blade. No bent main shaft or anything else. only the collectinve servo, stripped the gears, have replacements . total cost of damage. $25.00. Lucky. Maybe i should invest in a new spectrum transmitter set. $375.00 It was glitching before just sitting on the bench with nothing on but the radio.
