Hey guys, im buying an MA-010 board off of a member here and he said the steering is very twitchy. Its not a 2.4 board, just the old factory kind. What could cause the steering twitchyness?

Possibly a faulty or dirty steering pot... You can try cleaning it and see if that helps.

The steering pot is the little round thing that connects to the ESC correct? How do I go about cleaning one of them. If thats not the issue, whats the next step?

Also, will an MR-02 Board fit on an MA-010?

Yep that's the pot.
If you clean, it well and the twitching persist replace the pot with a new one, you can get them from @$3.00 to the original Kyocho @$7.00

The MA-02 will fit but writes are shorter and the servo motor wires have to be reverse.

To clean the Pot, just remove the clear plastic cover spry it with motor cleaner or deep it for a few min in paint thinner, pressure blow it dry or blow it hard. Thatís it.

Make sure to remove the batteries!!!:eek:

About the MA-02 PCB wires are to short so swapping them will be better and the motor + & - wires must be reversed. Yep soldering is need.
