    hello,
    I am having issues with my pan radian. Sometimes it works fine and then half way through the flight it just goes MENTAL! the pan axis spins round and round and round at full speed. When i switch it on and off again it stops spinning but as soon as i give it any stick input it goes off on one again. It also spins when i move the copter left and right as if the accelerometer is no longer calibrated. does anyone know why this would be? is it because i am switching from stabilized to stabilized-slew in flight?
    any ideas would be much appreciated!
    Thanks,
    Laurence

    Hi Laurence:
    It should not be doing that (how's that for stating the obvious? Sorry....)

    Can you double check the resistor pack on the pan Servo is properly plugged in? (Remove it and reseat it.)

    If it is, then you may have to swap (and reprogram) the Pan Radian with, say, the Tilt Radian. You if that doesn't fix it, then you might have to swap servos too.

    Andy.
