Jeti Mezon 130 and iKON glitch!?
OK, I'm fairly new to iKON and to the Jeti Mezon 130 ESC I'm trying to set up. I've worked through several issues thanks to a few knowledgeable folks here and elsewhere. I have a new issue now :arggg: When I pump the pitch on the bench the iKON seems to "glitch", servos freeze for a couple seconds, DSMX sats blink and come back on, then it's back to normal. Every time I increase and decrease pitch, repeatedly, I get this hiccup. When it's spooled up and I do this, in addition to the glitch, the motor slows and quits, then comes back up. Obviously happy I found this before I maidened the TT E700 today!! I'm running the throttle and "auxiliary/programming" wire into the throttle port and an open port respectively, so voltage is split between two inputs.

Can anybody w/ Mezon 1300 and/or iKON experience help me out? The weather is too nice to be inside fixing problems- I need to go fly! ;-)

Thanks!!

Protek 250Ts on cyclic. Powering the iKON via Mezon SBEC which is set at 7.4V

Any ideas? Thanks!!

One additional note- this happens even when moving the pitch up and down slowly

At the suggestion of a very knowledgeable Jeti Mezon user, I tried plugging one cyclic sevo at a time, to see how it worked. I got the glitch, brown-out, whatever, with every individual servo. I can't believe that one servo would draw so much as to cause this problem.

The other thing is that I didn't have this issue during the initial set-up and testing. I could pump the collective as fast and as long as I could with no issues. I went back to it yesterday and got this weird problem.

I also tried monitoring the amp load on the Jeti-box while moving the collective with all three servos attached and didn't see anything close to 2A on the display.

So, can I attach a receiver battery to the iKON, in addition to the SBEC on the Mezon 130 ESC? Will I have to turn the SBEC off somehow? Does this even make sense considering the output of the Jeti Mezon 130 SBEC? Starting to think I should go back to my old Castle and a receiver pack feeding the iKON.
