    I finally have all of the control surfaces working now in the Jimmy Carter. I have noticed that If I have a little throttle that the stern planes start to twitch some. The motor has the proper diodes or what ever they are called for the electronic noise. The stern planes servo is the only one doing the dance the others remain calm. Can it be just the servo has some issues and should I replace it?

      Do you have a pitch control in it?

        As Steve asks, is the angle-keeper installed? If so the stern plane servo 'chatter' during motor run is an artifact of vibration, not motor 'noise'. Not a problem as this vibration is damped out to a significant degree when the model is in the water. Take the angle-keeper out of the loop and test with the motor running -- no stern plane servo chatter.

          The angle keeper is installed I will give these ideas a try and see how it goes from there.
