Hitec laser 6 not working?
I purchased a laser 6 on rccanada (no complaints I paid 25$ for it) and it's not working.
Channel 5 (retracts) and channel 6 (aux pot on top) are working perfectly, everything else doesn't work.
Each channel has it's own preset, so when I plug a servo into that channel, it travels to a point but won't move after that.
If I move channels 2 and 3, and sometimes 4, at the extreme I can hear the servo start buzzing, but it's not moving at all, nevermind enough.
I went to the manual and tried tightening the tension on the gimbals but it didn't help, I've tried playing with the DR switches and the screwdriver pots at the bottom and it's not changing anything.
I'm really over my head here as I don't know how this thing works.
Can someone who owns one/ knows how to work one help me out with this?
If the servos buzz a little when you push the sticks as far as they'll go, it sounds like it could be something with the sticks' potentiometers. I would just open it up and move the gimbal pots by hand and check for loose/damaged wires and whatnot. Do this with the radio powered up so you can monitor the servos in real time but BE CAREFUL, dammit. The radio isn't dangerous to you, but you're dangerous to the radio. Accidentally making a connection between the wrong points could fry it quick.
