Naro Reciever glitching badly in Tantrum

Hi

I've just built a Tantrum and took it out for it's maiden flight at the weekend, unfortunatly found that I had a lot of glitching (more than a couple of seconds of glitching) from the newly bought GWS Naro Rx, nearly ended in disaster a few times! But not quite

The Rx is in the position described in the manual, velcroed to to one side of the fuselage but there are a lot of servo wires and esc wires quite close to it. There's not a lot of room for all the wires etc but I could put some foam in to seperate if any of the wires could be causing interference.

The setup is:
MM Tantrum
GWS EPS300c-d
GWS ICS400 Esc
GWS Naro Rx
8 cell Kan 1050
Hitech hs55 servos (except one Naro servo)


Anybody have any idea as to whether it is a faulty Rx or if it is getting some interference from something?

Thanks for any help.

Steve

Poke around the GWS forum. I'm having the same problem with 2 GWS receivers (original and a replacement). I just got the RMA form from GWS support this morning - we'll see if third time's a charm.

Needless to say, I've purchased an alternative (Hitec 555) and don't intend to buy any more GWS R6's.
