Default question about the align 510s

I recently finished building my 500 but noticed one thing I don't like, one of the 510s sounds notchy when I turn it by hand in one direction but when I turn it the opposite direction it sounds fine, when I turn system on it sounds fine both ways, the rest of the 510s sound fine as well, its just the one, should I b worried?

It certainly wouldn't hurt to pull the case apart and very carefuly check the gears. It would be faster, easier and cheaper than a crash repair.

$5.00 for a new set of plastics gears & you can sleep soundly

+1 on preventive maintenance, never had a servo failure, never want a servo failure, and I'm going to go knock on some wood...

Well thanks for the advice guys, I went ahead and changed the gears and the notchy sound is gone, I didn't however notice anything wrong with the original gears, maybe one was warped, who knows
