My Firing Mechanism Won't Cock



The reason that the firing mechanism won't cock is because the servo arm is not returning to the proper position and stopping the lever from engaging. To verify this, move the servo arm by hand in an outward direction, and try to re-cock. The reason this happens is either a loose connection, or a malfunctioning servo or improper servo arm alignment.

Servo arms can be adjusted, but 99% of the time is not the cause of this problem.
