Hi

I have a trex 250 se combo, as new, I have flow it for some weeks and now I get a glitch in the tail where it swings 30 deg and then stops, then every now and again it'll just spin and spin. land it and the servo is really sluggish on the sticks, power off and on and its pack to how it was.

now is this the align gyro or tail servo playing up...

I have reset as per book just to make sure it hadn't gone to the wrong servo type or something..but still the same

before anyone asks, its all spectrum for tx/rx

thanks

Cliff

Everything is very free and not sticky, only gets sticky when it plays up, If I remove the link to the servo, the links and tail are smooth, but the servo still moves sluggishly, Like I say disconnect power and re-connect and its all fine...so far cost me a tail boom with a heavy spinning landing....

after several months of it stitting on a shelf, I thought i'd have another look at the 250, I stuck a $2 ebay servo on the tail and re-programmed the gyro and it flys!!!

It seems that the Align servo doesnt like 6v, So the 250 now has a cheapy digital servo on the tail and the align servo has found a home on my 450...

So it seems the issue was 6v from the esc, turned down to 5v, all good now
