When I turn to the right my servo locks up. If I flick the steering wheel it will re-center but continues to lock here and there. Does this mean my servo motor needs to be replaced?

I have had mine get tight before and I would spray some WD40 in the gears and blow it out with a air compressor very good. Been fine. I dought it is the servo motor.

Yeah, try cleaning it out. WD-40 might pick up dust and gum up the servo if you leave it on there. I would recommend just getting the dust and dirt out of the servo.

Thanks guys - I'll do that. I was thinking it might also be a bad tooth in a servo gear.

You could check that easily when you clean it. It might be the problem, but I doubt it. The servo saver almost always does its job.

Looks like I have a couple teeth binding. Where can I get a servo gear set for the MA-010? And are the three gears the same for other models?

The gears are the same as the MR02/015/F1 gears...

Thanks - just ordered a set on Amainhobbies. I was getting confused because in the MA010/MA015 section of parts they don't list the servo gears. You have to look in the MR-02 and then read the description. Thanks for all the help guys! :D
