We've flown other aircraft since with the same transmitter so I don't think its that. All of the servos being faulty is hardly likely since I tried all movements prior to the crash. Nothing worked. The only other thing is radio signal interference like we used to get with 35mhz if someone else was on your frequency. Question is, is that possible on 2.4ghz

All connections were good and all were working after the crash.

Phil, it is not possible to get interference on 2.4 that makes the Rx do strange things, if the link is interfered with then the Rx should go to failsafe.

The only thing I could think of is a corrupted model memory, which causes the transmitter to stop acting on the stick inputs, but I must admit I've never come across this.

Have PM you Phil, but to add, some of your quoted receiver makes are really parkfly, were 200 yards would be 100 yards too far out.

They work nearby and on range test, but some single antenna are parkfly, and don't go much over 300 feet range

Hey Guys thanks for all your comments. The EZ flyer has now gone to the great aircraft hanger in the sky and is resigned to be put down to experience.

I wasn't suggesting that it was all of the servos, most unlikely as you say. There was another thread where one faulty servo drawing large currents intermittently was causing the receiver to occasionally go berserk, but not go into failsafe. I can't find the thread now of course and its a long-shot admittedly.

RIP EZ flyer!
