Doesn't work!?

I will say - my 5888 was an awesome bird for 3 flights - then it died. The one servo doesn't respond. I should search the thread to see if there's a fix or if common.
Check to see if the servo is mechanically "locked" and loosen by first putting a micro amount of quality model RR lube on the main vertcal bolt-shaft and on the lower gear. Then, with Rx/Tx OFF, use a pointed wooden toothpick to turn the lower gear and wind the plastic piece moving the pushrod up or down so that it is in the same "middle" position as the other servo. Try RC: if there is some movement, repeat the process as necessary until your servo moves freely.

If not .... and if you read some voltage going into the servo motor [else the PCB is shot!], there are replacement servos available, same for either side (L = R).
