Mount them with servo plates and throw the brass eyelets in the trash, with eyelets they are too damn loose (IMO), plantes and proper tensioning of the servos screws is enough to dampen vibration while providing secure mounting.

But the correct installation of the eyelets is flanges against the frame or servo tray.

What BarracudaHockey said. He, like me, is old enough to remember what the brass eyelets were originally for. Your heli isn't made out of wood. My Schluter Superior was !

So is it dumb to run both the brass and the servo plates?

On 50 size electrics I use plate and eyelets, just plates on nitros.

Nothing wrong with using the eyelets with the servo plates. Probably nothing wrong with not using them either. Truth is, most of this talk is theoretical. Although I aggree the flats of the eyelets should be away from the screws, in many cases it won't really matter.

How many of us make sure that no part of the helicopter frame is touching the plastic servo case. The rubbers won't do any good if the frame or other part of the helo is buzzing up against the servo. In order for the eyelets and the rubbers to do their job, the servo should float only on those pieces and not be allowed to touch other solid parts of the aircraft.

Hey now!

Well..........I did build and fly a Revolution 40 with a wood servo frame, maybe you're right...

I force mine in sideways and strip the screw into the frame with a plumbers wrench and a hammer.

What's really amazing is that spring is here, lots of places are now seeing good flying weather, and yet we've managed to build a 3+ fricken page thread/pissing match on how to install an eyelet <G>.

Put the flange the right way!
In normal installations where the servo sits on top of the tray/ servo rails the flange should be at the bottom of the servo. Whether you are mounting on wood (as in the old Schluters) or plastic the eyelet flange should be against the tray/rail then the flat flange of the screw will contact the non-flanged part of the eyelet and keep the rubber from being over compressed. The sharp end of the brass eyelet will bite into wood or plastic alike. If you are mounting against metal do not use the eyelet as it can create radio noise!

Causality is the Root of all Life!

2. Insert a metal eyelet from the bottom side of the rubber grommet. This way the wide portion of the eyelet will be in contact with the servo tray when mounted.
Yes this is the correct way. And it's for sure the way i do it on my planks.

On helis i throw the eyelets and screws in the trash but still install the rubbers on the servos. I get those carbon plates from Align and then get #2 or#3 socket head servo mounting screws from microfastner.com

Now Go Fly!!!

Brass eyelets
I never realized that there were so many mechanically un inclined heli pilots out there. There is only one way to put them in and that is as JR's instructions. My how some have not evolved with all of the new tecknology of today. The flange must go against the frame to stop frame damage and the screw goes up against the brass to allow movement of the servo in case of a crash.

I am not impressed

Ummm, it's brass. IT should NOT create any RF when set up against another metal...

Can't fly Radio is broken

SO here goes > flange side of eyelet to the frame ALWAYS
(well at least 99% of the time )
gives better grommet support

Throw the brass in the garbage and use a servo plate. Actually I usually don't use the screws either. A few minuets with a drill and some 3mm hex cap bolts makes for a sweet mount.
