    Quote.. "On 29 August 1782, the 100-gun warship Royal George, sunk whilst lying at anchor off Spithead and was Britain's worst shipwreck until the Titanic over a century later."

    How did it end up in Scotland??

    The mechanical throw of the rudder with this config will be asymmetric (more motion steering to Port over Starboard)

    A better solution (if there's room for the throw) could be to reverse the servo direction on the Tx, rotate the servo arm by 180deg and use a shorter connecting link..

    Possibly, a harmonic (Primary or IF frequency) from your old 40Mhz AM Tx in close proximity to the Garage is setting off his door.. In the same way as the old 27Mhz AM CB radios would set off peoples' security lights as you drove past them.

    Also it could just be some wild RF selectivity issue on the 5.8 Ghz receiver on the Door Control or where the RF input on the controller is not screened sufficiently to reject the rough output from your Tx and it's sending the door cranky!!

    I will assume his garage isn't by the pond you sail in so should only be a brief embarrassment.

    Have you tried running the Tx without the Aerial extended to see if there is still an issue. Running the Tx with the aerial down for a short while shouldn't cause any problem to the Tx RF output stage!!
