Hello
I was hoping someone could help. I just replaced my 3 swash servos on my gasser heli running 120 setup. I noticed the my servo horns have a very little bit of play in them. This will cause stripping I am sure. Is there anything I should us to trighten up this play? Thanks.

Hello
My horns are new and they are metal. They came with my gasser. I just put on JR D8101. I was thinking is there something I can use to tighten up the fit. The servos are not metal.

I don't have a gasser but if it was me I would use the horns that came with the servos if they will work.

THe servo horns on my gasser are metal because of the load the servo puts on the push pull system. I was thinking I could use some epoxy to fill the gap and make sure that it does not wear the splines down.

Put the right horns on. They obviously aren't matched to the servos as each mfg has different spline configuration.

If you're worried about the load then using epoxy doesn't make any sense at all.

Either use the manufacturers horns or a good quality after market horn. I don't know which horns or servos you are using but take a look at QUICKUK metal horns. Don't to a bodge with the epoxy.

Which servos are you using?

My heli is a JR260Gaser. I had it built for me and it came with 811 servos which are to small and almost found out the heard way. I replaced them with jr8101 servos and the fit is good and not very much play I just thought if I could fix that movement in with something then I would not have to worry about stripping the plastic outputshaft from the srevo.
