    If "it does not work and will not reverse the servo." How can you possibly know it doesn't work if it's not reversing the servo? I it didn't work you wouldn't be able to tell if it was reversing a servo because nothing would happen at all.

    Besides all that, the usual routine is to reverse a servo through the tx (radio), not the rx.

    I take it you have tried the 'offending' servo on another channel and reversed its output on the transmitter.



    However if that's not possible there are two options - try rotating the offending servo 180 degrees horizontally or buy a servo reverser

    thanks Daithi, every thing works on the rx except their is a small reverse switch on the rx for the ail.I think the switch is bad in the rx. Will return to HK. nicko

    Those switches do not reverse the servo direction from TX inputs. They only change the corrections the gyro gives out to the servos.



    To reverse a servo you have to do it in your TX.



    In addition, from memory, depending on how the servos are installed, if they were originally 'individual' channel controlled, rather than ones on a Y lead, it will need a servo reverser, as for god only knows why, in standard from these do make the Ail servos move the same way!



    Google 'Open Flight Stabilizer' and check out what these brilliant little stabs CAN be made to do!



    Nothing wrong with the item.WTWUK2016-03-12 05:41:22

    In such a case I always recommend these ones:

    Like them especially for flaps and butterfly in gliders.
