Tail servo has WAY more load in the air than the throttle does with a tiny/weak spring..

I agree, every nitro should have a throttle return spring. I have/had on my 700 and would have really helped on my 600 when the battery cut.

The first time your heli does the chicken dance or flys away the next time you will put a little spring on. Burnt clutches are not fun and smell horrible

As for; will it burn out the servo, etc. our servos are so over powered now a days I see no point in worrying. Who cares of the tail servo can you imagine the strain on the cyclic servos... I'm sure a little spring won't do much damage.

And again we are talking about a minimal spring which has just enough power to pull the engine to idle (or in my case) off.

Our servos are rated with holding power for a reason.... the risk surely out weights the little bit of servo strain. Besides it's about time the throttle servo does something more than move a piddly arm
