Normal SERVO chatter?


Using an AR7210BX with spectrum H6050 and H6060 servos and while powered up they make a ton of noise. I don't really see any movement, but I can feel the vibrations. The rudder servo makes the most noise, probably 4 times louder than the others. Is that normal?

Also normal that the swash moves smoothly and comes back to center (although slowly) when stick released but rudder jumps to a spot and stays there on stick release?

The rudder servo won't start moving on it's own until the heli is spun up. As far as the servo noise a little is common but not a lot. Maybe you should check the frequencies you are running them all at in the AR7210. Also check for any binding.

My 480 servos are always making alot of noise. That gets replaced with fear after liftoff..

Thanks guys.

HH just put out a video on the 480 configuration and I heard the same racket coming from their servos so must just be the way they are. I would have thought full size metal gear digital servos would be quiet. My 230 s v2 don't make any noise and they are half the price.

Having your Tx too close to the heli can result in servo chatter and also binding failures.

RC Deadband


Sometimes it can help to increase the RC deadband setting in the controller.
