    quick diagnosis, do you have another steering servo you could just plug in and see if ti does the same? im 90 percent sure its the servo itself ..but that would be my opinion to try first and see what happens.... jmo...

    All to often new products are defective right out of the box, so as rc stated if you have another servo of any kind, plug it in and check the results.......

    It seems to be related to getting water in the receiver.... Not saying that is the cause just a relationship. since the servo is digital if it gets incorrect voltages from the receiver the servos seem to act up.... Just my observation.

    I have gotten one receiver wet way back in the beginning but have yet to have steering servo go bad on me.. Just the luck of the draw I suppose.
