Certain It Is The Servo??
Just checking to see if you possibly flipped the links on the ltail slider and it is causing the servo to be stuck in the one position? ?
If not I would suggest you pull it and get it on it's way to Horizon Hobby for repair or replace

Did anything change? New gyro, new setup, reset the gyro? Or did you just wake up one morning and it was hard over and stuck?

The 8700G expects a neutral pulse width of 1520 usec. If your gyro isn't outputting that for neutral, the servo will not center and will run to one end and stay there. Turn off power and find out the problem, you will smoke the servo if you leave it stalled and trying to drive.

8700G
Well I believe that I left the power on over night,and when the power drained down,the servo went all the way over.Thats what I think.

That Could Be It
Let us know...
Just check it all out carefully to make sure nothing got damaged.
Good Luck
