    servo problem, maxing out and not responding

    am using a Turnigy TGY-i6 Transmitter with a Turnigy iA6 Receiver. Attached are 3 turnigy TG9e servos. The issue I have is that seemingly randomly the servos they move to maximum reach and lock out. Only way to reset is removing the battery from the receiver. Is this a fixable problem?

    Megapirate NG 3.0.1 / APM Tricopter Yaw Issues

    Has anyone been able to set a max or min limit on the servo for a tricopter when using APM or Megapirate? When I push full right on the servo it gets stopped at it's endpoint and draws a ton of current. Would setting the limits on the radio fix this?
