Servo Jitter on full throttle
« on: March 31, 2017, 11:01:37 PM »

So my Skywalker has a weird issue with jitter... I use one of those 360 degree GWS wotsits and when I'm at 3/4 throttle, it suddenly starts jittering badly, like 45 degrees or so each time in random directions.

Any ideas?

The rest of the servos are fine it's just this one - it is mounted directly above my battery wires and current sensor - possible interference?

Just for reference, I use a 5A BEC to power my receiver.

Wrap servo body in alu foil if you can.

Beat me to it. I was going to suggest you slide a sh1t load of tin foil between the servo and the sensor/battery. See if the issue goes away and go from there.
