Well, apparently the servo issue has hit home here. This evening flights were going great until the Pole Cat kept turning right until it hit the ground. First inspection of the plane found the aileron servo locked full right. Working the ailerons stick back and fourth with no response. Took it back to the garage and hooked up a new battery and it locked up again into the neutral position, after a couple seconds of moving the stick the servo started working again. A complete inspection of the aircraft revealed the crash hit hard enough to loosen the motor and crush scaring to the spinner and nose (not happy). Comparing servos the rudder and elevator ones are quieter and smoother. I can actually here the aileron servo skipping. This SUCKS!

I'll be talking with Horizon in the Morning!

Running with DX6i pre-DSMX.
