I was flying my e5 this weekend. In the 2nd flight, it powered up fine but when I took off, the heli flopped all over the place and I quickly set it down. I checked the heli (still in hold mode) and my elevator servo had very little torque. It moved fine with my TX controls, but I could hold the servo still or move it by hand with very little force. The other 3 servos were acting normal. I shut off the heli and TX. After powering it back up, everything responded normally and all of the servos had full torque. After stressing the ELE servo by hand a few times and triple checking all of the controls, I flew it. The heli flew fine for 3 more flights.
I have been flying for about 7 years with many different servo/gyo/rx combos. This is the first time I have had a servo respond this way. Is this a sign of a problem or just a fluke? Any help would be greatly appreciated. If this is an obvious sign, I could really use the help.
E5, RJX cyclic/tail servos, 7200bx, cc120, Scorpion motor. Straight 2s lipo to RX with 2 connectors. All plugs are hot-glued in the 7200. There are around 50 flights on this heli.
