Resistance values for pitch motor potentiometer?

    On a thread somewhere on this forum, a member mentions that the resistance on the potentiometer on the roll motor circuit board should be 3.2 ohms. This is reading from the top center post to the bottom left post and to the bottom right, with the cutout in the shaft level. When the potentiometer is turned to 9:00 or 3:00, the resistance goes up to about 4.8 on one lower post and to about 1.6 on the opposite post.

    Does anyone know if the values for the pitch motor potentiometer are the same as the roll motor? Are there any other repairable problems with the pitch motor board?

    Thanks for any replies.

    Both, roll and pitch potentiometers should have the same value and they are in kOhms (kilo ohms) not ohms.

    Thanks. I'll measure the pot on the board that's bad.
