Has anyone noticed their rudder servo getting soaked in fuel from being on the exhaust side? Any rudder servo failures yet? Anyone doing anything to protect the servo from the exhaust?

pcskyhi,

I noticed this from day one, however, my SE continues to douse the tail servo. In the 15 years of flying my SE...not one failed servo due to the exhaust oil.

The only thing I've noticed is the servo wire gets hard over time. Faster than the servos protected in the canopy.

I actually have had two servos fail. One of the servos I sent in to Futaba and they said that oil had gotten into the servo and caused the failure.

To fix this problem I try to run some rtv around the seems of the servo... haven't really had any problems since. Hope this helps!

Make sure to seal where the wires feed into the servo, that is where oil gets in.
