    Merv running weird

    I took my merv out tonight for the first time in a couple days and when I started to go forward ii didnt go right away it just jerked forwards a little then stopped when I continued to hold the throttle it eventually started to go and every once in a while it would do the same thing. Can anyone tell me if this is a servo problem or if it is anything else? I am going to my Lhs tomorrow so if it is the servo I will just pick up a new hs85 mg. thank you in advance for any help.

    Sounds like cogging. Cogging is normal. Happens to everyone.

    Yeah I know about cogging I have had my merv for about 3 months and it has never done this before. At half throttle it has but never at full throttle.

    Mine when I had stock set up did that once, but never done it again, still don't know what it was.

    Just a thought, but you could try and change the transmitter batteries.

    I have the dx3c transmitter and it says I have 5.5 volts so I don't think that is it.

    That might be a possibility. I really hope it's not the motor I can't afford a new one at the moment.

    I hope it is still good. A new motor and esc are a part of my plan for it but just not right now.
