Post Weak servo

Hi guys, i have a hitec 5745 steering servo in one of my baja 5B's. I cant seem to get full swing in the field, not a problem on the stand and the servo saver is tight. If the battery is not fully charged can this affect the operation and strength of the servo. :ponder:

Yes, it can. Be shure to check for any binding in your steering, if you havn't already.

Well if your using a nimh battery the way they work is that as the battery discharges, it does so in kinda a slashed line, so its starts off at 6v, and half way through the charge it will only be putting out about 3V or so. A Lipoly, or Life battery will dishcharge at a constant 6v until it is fully discharged and will suddenly fall off to dead, which hopefully dont happen cause its bad on these types of batteries. So if your using a Nimh its a possibility, if your using the other types of batteries then your binding, or your trims might not be set right, if its not that then well Im not sure.

Lightbulb Photographic memory

Found the problem,on this car I'm running a HPI TF10 radio and had the steering D/R turned way down. Have not used this radio for some time and due to having a photographic memory but not putting the film in i forgot to check. Run a specky on all my other rigs just wont to have some competicion with the misses. :whistle:
