Flying my Nova yesterday when my elevator servo failed (stripped) doing tic-tocs. Heli went straight in nose-first. I got to throttle hold just before inpact, too late. It happened so fast. I think I will be upgrading to metal gear servo's. So far an estimated $300 just in the heli not to include blades. I also lost my battery, gv-1 and receiver. I've never had a crash this bad.

I have ran 8411sa's which are faster and stronger but still have plastic gears and not stripped one in flight. I think your servo motor took a sh*t and then it crashed and stripped. Just thinking aloud. I had 2 8411sa's die like that and seen a 8417 do it a month ago. Your servo gears stripped upon impact. I have switched to 9252's and am having better luck.

When I got home and was able to hook the servo up to another receiver the servo motor was still working. So, the motor didn't take a dump the gears did. I still havn't opened the servo up yet to see what let loose but there is no resistance on that control when I move the control rods.

Unless you are biinding hard your not going to strip the gears.

Just opened the servo case and the servo did strip. The upper and middle gear let loose.
