Brian, I was interested to read of your E-Flite retract problems as I had sent mine back to the local agent and he replaced them. They work (didn't work) in exactly the same manner - 1 up, 1 down nothing moving etc...... Then I read (not in the notes) that the TX should move a couple of times from up to down and back (maybe to establish the limits representing the up/down control. Never missed a beat since!
I compounded my problems by using a servo tester rather than the tx (as I often do) and was just easing the control each side of centre to see what happened.
If an initialisation IS needed, why dont they print it in the notes
Probably depends on the tx too.......
Model is looking good - it is exactly the span of the Anson I am collecting stuff for (but will be about 1/2 the weight I bet
