I replaced both with 9G emax metal gear servos.

I split the bird in half at the glue line.

Thanks


I will look at a little deeper and decide if I want to do the task or put it up for sale for someone else to repair. Thanks Brian

Hello,
Recently purchased a Pterodatyl at a swap meet. Just the bird and no radio or receiver.
How does one set it up with a spectrum receiver and radio?
Read that YOU should not hook up the servo wire attached to the ESC, correct?
How do you set up the screech sound on a spectrum rec'r? And radio?
What does the on/off plug in switch on the outside reference to and do I need it to set up?
What size battery would I be using? I'll be converting to EC3
Thanks for anyones help. Looking forward to screechin' the skies.

Hi Dave check this page out.

Midway down you'll see a diagram and pics on how to wire in a Turnigy switch. Everything I've read (and it's quite a bit)
is that the sound card will not work with a third party rx by just plugging in the sound card lead to the rx. Also you can fry some component.

Good Luck!

Figured it all out and soldered by the instructions. Works on my Gear ch. but the thing doesn't turn off after I flip the switch! But it does work
