Re: Coupla Questions

If it is a Hitec rx, just send it back to them. They usually do fixes like
that for free.

Regarding the control throws, try using dual rates on both the elevator and
ailerons to reduce the throws. I have used the same setup on an FMA razor
but can't remember exactly without rereading the manual and doing some
experimenting.
