You may be right about the outside interference, but that doesn't rule out over deviation. That occurs inside the TX'r.

On, second thought It.....Ah, never mind, this could get very complicated. I heard a rumor that some cell towers will bother the gigahertz radios. Not sure how true it is but that is what I heard.

Default UPDATE!!

Well Parkzone came through! Got my new plane today. Replaced it no questions asked!
What awesome customer service! I will now buy more from them and recommend to others.

Thanks ParkZone!

Now, if I would just get the new transceiver system in, I can get back in the air.

Thanks Louis. I'm the guy that sent back the Typhoon 2, 3D. Thanks for the advice! I will check everything over closely.

Hello Clint,

I seem to be having the exact same problem with the T-28 as it glitches while flying. It rolls uncommanded. I have tried numerous fields with the same problem so it is not interference.

I think it could be the battery connection as the only time the ailerons glitch in ground testing is when the battery is unplugged and plugged back in.

Let me know what you have found out in yours.

(rolls, pithes, throttle) They tend to be brief lapses of control, lasting only a second or two but would be a disaster if close to the ground.

The problem is that it is intermittent and I have not been able to reproduce the problem on the ground. (I have stopped flying the plane until I get it resolved.)

Possible issues:

1. RF issue with xmitter / receiver (unlikely given range check and the fact that uncommanded operation happens at relatively close range - less than 500')

2. Receiver reset problem (perhaps caused by noise on BEC)

3. ESC Issue - BEC voltage cutting out

4. XMitter problem - (bad battery contact or some other quality issue)


The problem with traditional troubleshooting (replacing one component at a time) is the risk of a crash each time it glitches.

Using a different receiver/transmitter eliminated the problem. (No change in battery, ESC or servos.) Appears to be defectiive receiver or transmitter.

Had the same problem with mine - quite a few serious crashes on approach!! Fixed by putting cheap Ghz radio/receiver. G. luck!
