Default Parkzone Spitfire MK IX + DX6i = Intermittent Rudder, Please Help !

Hi, as the title says, I have these 2 items.

When I first bound them together they worked fine. Unplugged the battery and then plugged it back in again, only this time no rudder control.

On about the 4th try at doing this, rudder control came back, then it went.

I tried to re bind, and it all worked fine, then it stopped after I unplugged the battery out then back in again.

In case it was the transmitter, I swapped the alierons and rudders over on the RX. I could control the alierons fine with the rudder stick, but not the rudder with the alierons.

Because I brought both of these items at the same time, I don't have a working benchmark to compare to, and I also don't have any other models to test the electronics out in.

Any ideas would be great, thanks.

Faulty rudder servo would be my first choice as you have already eliminated the receiver by swapping the plugs round. Might be an intermittent connection on the cable.

Turn on your Dx6i without having the model on. Go to the Monitor page on the display screen. (Check you manual for how to get there. )

Move the rudder stick slowly back and forth and see if the output shown on the screen is smooth and follows your inputs, or jumps around. This should test if it's your transmitter.

I actually think there was a recall on some 6i's for just this matter. Go to their site and check it out. Did you get it new or used?

I was also going to mention you shouldn't make multiple identical posts like you did with this one. You already have 2 different threads of answers now instead of everything in one place. You may want to ask a moderator to delete all but one of your identical posts.

I just realized you ruled out the xmttr with your test swapping rud and ail. It's probably the servo. You may check the pins in the servo's plug carefully too. Sometimes they can back out.
