Not sure if the 9254 will be salvageable -I was setting up something else, it was binding, and I wasn't paying attention. Eventually the combination of heat and torque caused at least one of the gears to fail. I might try buying a replacement gearset, but i'm not sure I trust the electronics, given how hot the servo was when I pulled it.

In the mean time, I need to replace it. I'm using a BeastX flybarless controller for my gyro, not the old gy401 the servo came with, if that makes any difference.

So, can anybody suggest some good alternatives, replacements or value options for a new tail servo?

For around $40 to $50 new on Ebay or the forums, I've had great luck with the Align 620/650 tail servo's on all my birds from the 550 elec. to the gasser.
I run them straight off LiFe batt. at around 6.6v I think.

I'm using the S9254 with the BeastX with no problems, I also own the Align DS650 can't go wrong with that servo.

Anything but a S9254!

The Savox 1290MG is a good choise. The Align 650 and new Spek tail servo ARE Savox rebaged.

Might as well get it from Savox. Cheaper and better warranty from the maker too.

Also the Spektrum H6080G is the Savox re-badged as I understand it.

SAVOX makes them all.
Spektrum H6040 is a Savox SC-1258TG = DS610
Spektrum H6080G is a Savox SC-1290MG = DS650

Savox does change the Spek output gear with a JR compatible spline, but besides that is the same servo. The aligns are identical to Savox except the label and maybe the top case appearance.

I bought the Savox 1290mg, it was in stock at my local hobby shop, at a very good price, and I had already decided to get either that, or an align 650, knowing they are equivalent.

Thank you all for your help.
