When my 5500DC was new I had erratic needle movement on Elevation. After a few weeks it cleared up on its own. Its been fine ever since- about 1.5 years now.

I am contemplating buying a new Yaesu G5500DC rotor but have heard that the new DC motors were having problems. I wonder if there is anybody that has purchased the new DC rotors and what their comments are. I bought a new G350DC azimuth rotor and had to send it back twice for erratic needle movement. I would hate to pay $800 for a new G5500DC rotor and have the same problem. 

Thanks for any info   JACK  KC7MG
