tail servo on trex 500 esp
Some have told me to scrap the 500 servo mount and go with the 600 servo mount and run the larger tail servo.Has anybody done this and is it a better idea.Thnx Rich

First, Are you having a problem with exsisting servo?
Are you sure it is not in your setup.
I have (2) 500's with stock setup for tail servo with no problem.
Fly with scheduled ground contact !

Have you got your 500 already? How bout you learn to fly what comes in the kit first. If you have any problems with it then think about fixen it. Those birds are great macheins right out of the box. Dont get me wrong Im just trying to save ya a few bucks that you really shouldnt need to spend Mine has the original mount and the proper sized servo and it flies great. Keep in mind that the center of balance needs to stay as close to the main shaft as possible.Keep ur head out the dirt only in the grass

I have done what you are asking about Rich as I already had a Futaba 611 and the 9256 servo that it came with so I put it in and it worked great.

Na not yet just road maping it abit,from what u all say and other research leaves me to believe its not necesary.I was prolly going to go with the kit without taiservo and gyro.And run a spartan gyro with a jr i think its the 3600g or 3500 g tail servo,run the suplied motor esc combo along with the suplied cyclic servos and run glass blades not wood i dont like the thought of shreded blades flying apart.And btw i never delt with amain hobbies they any good i just don`t want to have a similar experience a freind had at banna hobbie on a boat he got drowned to say the least.Thnx Rich

I've got the 3500 on mine. It works great for me, only sport flying. I had to get a different mount for it. Been awhile and had this info in my book, Custom Heli Parts/carbon tail mount/part#CHP-T5024. I hope that's right, like I said it's been awhile. Anyway the 3500g fit perfect in it.

esp tail servo
3500g on my esp works very well even when pushed a bit hard. small, cheap & light.
Kirkgangs mount is a good idea also.
