    steering problem

    Got a video for what i'm dealing with. It will return to center when I turn one way but not when I turn the other. Any ideas? Thanks

    Something is obviously binding up.

    Sometimes loosening steering screws (and putting loctite on the loosened screws) will help.

    It is either a broke servo, or binding in the linkage. Recommend removing the servo horn and cycling the steering by hand, it should be smooth and easy to move full throw in both directions. If the linkage is good, move the servo with the TX.

    My gf had the same problem about a month ago, we checked for binding and didn't find any. The servo by all accounts looked and worked fine but when we replaced it the problem went away. My guess is the tsm (head lock gyro) over worked the servo. If you have a spare servo slap it in there and see if that solves it for you

    Ok I'll try that tomorrow. I even upgraded to metal gears in the servo because I thought maybe the plastic ones were bad but it still did it after. I do have a spare so I can try that
