servos never go to the previous position

  • Hi,

    i have a Competition SRS with 2x futaba R6303SB, servos S9177SV

    when I turn on the system the servos never go to the previous position. They move a few millimeters down or up.

    What could be the cause? How can I solve the problem?


    Thanks you

  • I only did 5 flights with this plane using the low excursions condition for the imac flight and for the initial model setup.

    The problem is that when I turn on the Competition srs I must, always, to adjust the servos mechanically to align the moving parts to the fixed parts because they always change position by about 1/2mm

    This problem occurs on all S9177SV servos but especially on those of the elevator.

    I have n.6 servos Futaba S9177SV for aileron and elevator, n.1 Futaba A700 for rudder, n.1 S3072HV for throttle all powered at 7.4V


    Radio Futaba T12FG Setup is:

    End Point: 135%

    Sub Trim: 0

    N.3 Flights Condition (low/med/high)


    2x Futaba R6303SB receivers set to normal mode


    All installed equipment is new.


    I gave you as much information as possible, if you need more, you let me know.


    thanks you

  • Hello,

    I read another user with the same problem as me in this post:


    Trim instability issue with PB Competition SRS


    I did the following tests:

    1) set the R6303SB receivers to normal mode and high speed.... failed

    2) set the outputs voltage to 5,9V..... failed

    3) set the elevator in the synchronized outputs channels C and D.... failed

    4) I connected the elevator servos directly to the receiver R6014FS with powered at 4,8V .....ok, works well


    I hope these tests can help you understand the problem


    I'm waiting for your feedback


    thanks you

  • Hi,

    I exposed the problem of PB to technical support of Jonathan italy because I bought it from them with invoice and guarantee.

    They sent their courier to take the package with the PB on 22 October 2019.

    A month has passed, they told me they sent it to the manufacturer, but they don't tell me when I can get it back and that's why I ask you for information.


    if you have this PB with serial n.279345 under repair, can you give me information, please?


    - What kind of problem did you encounter?

    - It is normal that I have to use a repaired PB on a new and very expensive model? I've never used it in other models

    - when will this problem be solved?


    tell me what to do


    I thank you in advance and wait for your feedback

    Orazio
