So I bought a summit as my second ground RC unit, finally getting away from planes and helis. Much less stressful to drive than fly :P I'm having a pretty major problem with the steering servos though (2075 servos, stock summit, etc). On the stock (TQi 2.4Ghz) rx, the servos work fine. As soon as I power the RX (either with the ESC on the truck or a separate BEC) the servos buzz a little to center, then go quiet until I tell them to turn (which they will do). More over, they ALWAYS work, just as you would expect. On every other RX I own they usually won't turn on. They don't center, buzz, or respond to my controls.
Once every 20 or so power cycles one servo will turn on, 5-10 seconds after everything else has powered up. Once powered up it will continue working until I power off.
I have tried the following RXs:
Hitec 27Mhz FM 5 Channel
Servo Tester (Not exactly a RX)
Unknown FM RXs x3 courtesy of my local club's members.
Each of these RX's works with every other servo I have ever plugged into them.
I have tried the following:
Different channels on each of the RXs.
One steering servo connected, or both using a Y (Or both plugged directly into the AR500 as it has dual Aileron output)
Other servos connected, or just ESC
Nothing but BEC and a steering servo connected
Checked for reversed wires/connections (As they sometimes power up and work, this is not it)
Checked voltage - 5.97v making it to the servo according to my multimeter
I can't find anyone else with even a remotely similar problem on google or this forum, unfortunately. Traxxas support says the servos are just standard servos, and they have never heard of anything like this before. I really don't want to have to go buy another set of servos/single high power servo for $100, as i don't have the money now and the servos on there work great (when connected to the TQi RX). Has anyone had a similar problem, or does anyone have any idea what to try?
