Futaba vs Tower (Hobbies) servo



The servos showed identical speed on the slow mo cam. Steering oscillation was down to the servo saver. With no desire to break another servo, decided a better solution was to stiffen the suspension. It took the whole day to add 1/4" wood pieces to shorten the springs. The wood needed grease to get the suspension moving. The stiffer suspension greatly improved payload handling, so it was a worthy alternative to finding the cause of the oscillation. It may one day work with the DSLR.

Drove home with another epic payload. This one flipped over a few times. The battery died .5 miles from home, after only 1 mile with the payload. Had to run back with a new battery, but forgot the remote control. Couldn't drive it manually. The payload made it too unstable to drive without the computer.
