front steering servo chatter

Got the new "Tiki-Tiki" JSCC Cup MR-03. After 2 mins of running the front servo constantly chatters and is jittery when in any position. Tried binding to a 2nd transmitter and same thing. Any quick fix for this, or should I just try contact cleaner in the steering servo pot? Seems strange that the pot would be dirty right out of the box.

Servo jitter is normal on the 03s. Shouldn't affect performance.

This is normal for digital servos.

is it affecting and/or restricting any steering movement?

try 'resetting' your tx... a guy i know (with the regular kt18 and mr02 asf) had some steering issues (binding, limited steering throw on one side compared to the other)... he rebinded... and it still happened... i suggested to reset and rebind the kt18 and after that the problems were gone...

don't know if you can reset 3 channel tx's though...

dunno if this is what you're experiencing with yours though...

but if it's just some servo noise coming out in front, it's normal...

hope this helps
