Typhoon v. Cornona RD620

hey all, my first post btw. well out at my club we have many people who fly the parkzone typhoons. one of our club members did a sorta scratch build. he bought all the spare parts and made himself a custom typhoon which he dubbed the starphoon, it has star decals, bet you couldnt have guessed. well i did the same thing. i put it together in one week, prolly coulda done it quicker but being a high school student with sports takes away a lot of building hours. well it turned out to be one of the best planes i have. it flies almost as solid as my 1/4 scale taylorcraft. well, it only had 4 successful flights. on the 5th flight it took off and i realized i had lockout problems. i tried to get it down as quickly as possible, but my attempt failed. as soon as i turned final it took a violent nose dive and bit the dust. it wasnt too bad, had to order a new fuse and prop adapter. more money put into an already expensive plane, $555 i might ad. well as soon as i got home i went to work preparing the plane for repair, and disecting the problem. ever since i was 6 and started flying, i had never had any sort of problem like this one. immediately i suspected a receiver problem. the receiver i chose to use was a corona rd620. i had never used a corona yet, but heard some good remarks about it. the 620 is dual conversion, so i didnt suspect interference. what i did discover was that when i applied even the slightest pressure to the male servo connections on the receiver, it caused a lockout. if i applied pressure to unused connections i got the same result. im sending it back tomorrow for a refund and going over to a trusty gws naro for the typhoon. happy flying
