Help!
twitching problem with GWS R4 PII JR 4Ch FM Pico Receiver

I bought this receiver to use on a foamy, and when I paired it with my JR "Max computer" radio, it works but the elevator servo twitches when I move the aileron. The twitch is worse on some servos than others but it's still there. Any ideas what might be causing this? It doesn't happen when I use the JR PCM receiver, the GWS receiver is PPM, could that have something to do with it? I don't have any other PPM receivers to test on.

Thanks
Jerrod

I've always had problems with GWS receivers. It doesn't matter which one, who owns it, or where it is, but I find them to be the bottom of the crap pile for receivers.

Sums it up nicely...I have had EXCELLENT results with the corona receivers and you can use the GWS crystal in the single conversion receivers.

I get mine from here: http://www.headsuprc.com/servlet/the...ERS/Categories

I had about a dozen GWS rx's, they all glitched at least once each flight, usually alot more. I lost several planes to glitch nose-ins, so I switched to Bergs.

Bergs are the best. Micro stamp 4 channel is perfect for foamies and other smaller craft. And they hold up!!!! I have had them stuck in trees for weeks,
antenna pulled out, in crashes, stepped on etc. And they still work!!
$36 bux plus xtal at aeromicro.com
Best rx I've ever used.
