Judging by the fact that your steering servo isn't messing up as well, I'd
suggest trying a second servo. If that servo mucks up as well, try a
different reciever... If THAT messes up, then try the xtals, etc etc etc...
It does sound like your servo is going south. I have a servo that does the
exact same thing... combined with a wierd "jittering backing off" thing...
It'll pull 99% throttle, then start to "pulse and let off"... unless I let
off, and then pull full throttle again, it keeps goin... It has to do with
the feedback potentiometer (JR z250 "Race Servo").
Okay, I'm ramblin, lol. But, Give the above advice a try, and you should
be able to track down the problem.
