shoe goo or 5 minute epoxy work great. Rough up the case of the servo and the mounting flat on the frame first.

I've used Sho-Goo on cars before, no problem.

My Heli came with the servos attached with dbl-sided foam tape, then a small zip-ty around to hold it securely. I used the same method when I replaced the servos (w/HS-56's) and there is -0- flex.

The secret is to use the thinnest kind you can buy and the Zip-Ty together. Trinity and 3M brands work equally well.

Really the ONLY things that matter is that the servos do NOT move/flex in their mountings and you need not destroy anything to remove them. In the end, however this is accomplished is unimportant.

Shrink wrap the servos... then use hot glue or CA....

That way you don't ruin the case if/when you want to remove them..

I use CA and my servos have absolutely no play. I didn't use a lot of CA.... just a couple of small drops. My servos have been in place without problems for 10 months. It work's great!

Using the double sided servo tape is the biggest joke. I can't believe there are people out there actually using this stuff because it gives and makes it more diff to control these already "hard to control" micro helis.

Using CA to mount my servos (among other mods) helps me to do a hands free hover for about 3-5 seconds.

CA them servos on,,, and well your at it CA the landing gear together too. I found it really helps cut down on vibration and your hummer will fly a lot steadier.
Just make sure you don't crash any more

hi
on electric helis , that dont use screws for servo mounting , i use CA

warning on some of the cheaper servos the ca can wick in and ruin them

if the servo uses a strip of heatshink and no screws to hold the case together , look out

i've used this method on about two dozen servos and never had a problem

1. with some fine sandpaper , rough up the two sufaces to join

2. i get the servo where i want it with the linkage hooked up and still pinching it to the frame , let a >tiny< bit of thin CA seep into the space between the servo and the frame , while still holding it , hit it with some kicker

3, repeat step one and two on the other servos

4. with all servos just tacked make sure you like the positions of all of them together , i run them to make sure they clear eachother

5 ,to finish , let a full drop of thin CA wick in and kick again on each of the sevos , do them one at a time

6. if you need to remove them later they will pop off with some #11 blade prying , helps to pop them in the freezer for 5 minutes first

hope this is helpfull
