I got a 50 nitro with all hv servos and beast x with 2s lipo powering the whole system. I noticed my tail servo was getting hot. I been through the linkage several times to make sure nothing is binding I switched out the servo with a brand new savox hv tail servo and it too is getting reall hot. I even lowered the frequency twice. ( it's rated for 270-333mhz) I have it at the one lower than 270. has anyone had this issue?

Maybe try lowering your tail gain (via your Tx tail channel). I find that if this is too high my tail servo get's pretty hot. Dropping it down to where it still holds/works well helped it run a lot cooler.

make sure the F or G light is lite when adjusting gain. i dont go by the transmitter value when setting up. ive never had an issue starting at one of these letters

I tried lowering my gain, I checked and tried everything( in terms of mechanical and programming in the gyro) except switching out the gyro. the one thing that seems to help is I used a 2 channel regulator between the tail servo and the beast x. so it goes 7.2v out the beastx to 5.?v to the servo. I'm using a savox sb2272mg Hv brushless servo. I got two flights with this reg and then the counter gear that drives the belt stripped tried to auto but wasn't high enough bounced and boom strike. so now I gotta rebuild and try again.

Vibration will heat up a tail servo. Also consider shortening the servo arm, you want about 90 degrees total servo throw from left to right limit.

60% of the time, it works every time!

I stepped down the voltage and rebuilt the entire tail after a boom strike due to the counter gear that drives the belt striped and my one way on the main gear locked up. now it's running cool and proper.
