test flight on my extra showed up two glitches which both sent the model to the right on ailerons only, have now moved the aerial to the top of the fuse, away from the servo cables and hopefilly that is going to cure it.  If I have any developments that might help I'll keep you posted

Is there not a fault with the transmitter or receiver?

There must be thousands of this model Futaba in the UK, not heard of any widespread problem?

Although I have heard people complain of interference from other sets, JR, Multiplex, I find this hard to believe, as I would hope that in this day and age, reputable sets do not swamp other frequencies. In the past we blamed CB radio.

Glitches usually go the same way for a given set up, ie., right/down. I recently had a similar problem when, nomatter what sort of Rx I fitted, the model (ic) would glitch badly, despite the receivers being flown OK in other models. The servos were replaced one at a time. Mistake. Two coreless servos were each causing the problem. When replaced as a pair the glitching disappeared. If your model is electric, could it be that you are trying to operate too many, or too high a current drain servos from your ESC? Try fitting a UBEC (try ebay) which will allow you to operate four or more servos from a 3-cell Lipo pack. These are typically 3A rated. It worked for me. Martin Mc.
