Could be. But, there is absolutely no binding when the servo is not connected. And, the gear has to rotate several times to run the servo to one end. Yet, it only binds at full deflection in one direction, not part way. I checked for gear problems using my 10x magnifying headset before going flying and didn't see anything. And I don't think the behavior fits. I think I need a straighter shot between the servo and the control horn. I have a fix in mind, just not something I could do at an indoor session.
