Is your Mercury on the latest software?

Hmm, The Mercury was used on my Futura which had the identical valve for the gear. From what I can tell the person on that post was using the onboard door sequencer which I'm not, Infact I've turned it off.

Not sure which version I'm on, From memory it's on V4.01. I'll check tomorrow morning.

Might be worth testing as he mentions. Unplug the valve and just stick a servo in there. If that cycles as well when you power up, I’d say the problem is in your mix somewhere. If it doesn’t cycle, it looks like the valve could be the issue.

Ok, progress! Put a servo on the channel which is controlling the gear valve and the problem didn’t appear so it must be down to the Valve.

Checked the version and it’s V.01.

Right then. I need to buy or borrow a PB update lead then.

This Gear up jitter sounds about right.
