Just noticed that there are a dual row of holes in the frame for a tail servo. The inner ones look good for a mini servo like the 9257 (35mm width) and the outer ones for a larger one like the 9254 (40mm width).
I have a 9254 already and wonder if there are any issues before I go ahead and grind off the frame tabs? Issues as in 'whoops there goes the frame and the 9254 doesn't actually ft well......'

I took the tabs off the frame and my BLS251 fit perfectly so if you want to use the 9254 grind em off.

That BLS-251 must be a killer servo on the 400 tail. I'm going to try that out! Tom

251 is best on 409 for sure no use trying the mid, sure you can get them to work ok, but rock solid is the 251 for sure.

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Wow---tried my new BLS-251 on the 400 today and it is superb--the fit was perfect with a little dremel work on the tab. The servo is a selection on vbar 4.0...so it's a breeze. Thanks for the tip. Tom

yup, i can tell you getting a midsize (9257) to work is a pain. In the end, its pretty darn solid (ended up being the governor on the hacker esc, once i switched to a castle and played with the governor gain, she locked right in) but definitely much more foolproof.

my buddy has the brushless 251 i think and getting the tail perfect was a no brainer. I am curious to see how well the brushless mini will hold though. Maybe better and you'll lose an ounce in the process.

In the end i stuck with the 9257, well, because i'm stubborn

Is anyone using the
MKS DS8910 AVCS 760us Digital Servo 2.01kg/.054sec/27g
http://www.hobbycity.com/hobbyking/...?idProduct=8255
Should be as good as the BLS-251 but half the weight!
