the right aileron servo and it is a standard size two ball bearing servo. If
I give it input (stick movement) mostly to the endpoint and release it will
move in the correct direction, but it appears further than my programmed
endpoint. Perhaps to my high rate, maybe further even though I'm on low
rates. I have swapped ports on the receiver, as well as disconnecting
various combinations of flaps or ailerons and also substituted another
receiver. I connected all 7 servos on the plane and the result is the same
servo having a problem.
Someone at the field mentioned I may have a dirty "pot" and it needs to be
cleaned. Does anyone agree?
If that might be correct, I know not to use just any cleaner solvent and
there is specific cleaner solvents for servos. Is there any reasonable
substitute maybe found around a house or shop?
Do you think I just need to give it up and replace the servo?
