    When you are in v mode and you move the wings out to stright and stop it does it do a little jurk about 1 sec. later? or is mine not normal?

    Not normal. It should stop and stay that way until you use your controller again...

    Not sure what you mean by jerk. When I stop mine they will glide for a second. I stop mine just before where I want them. They don't come to an abrupt stop.

    I will have to do a vido with my camra and then you can see what i mean, I didn t think it was normal. I think it may be the controler.

    My one plow is a year old and the other new this year. They both have the joystick and neither do what you are describing. I don't know how they would move back, would air cause this problem?

    There seems to be a minor correction to the wing. I don't think I would worry about it. They both seem to do the same thing. Not as drastic as I thought.

    Yeah and it seems to be getting better, they use to realy jurk, Maybe it is air in the hyd. system. from hauling it home with it's face down. I was getting a bad mone/ squeel out of the motor every once in a while, I pulled the motor and lubed the bushings and i have not had that since.

    Looks good to me. It performs exactly like mine. I wouldn't worry about it.
