Verify travel limit.

Make sure its not binding.

Consider upgrading to metal gears.

I was thinking of replaceing with metal gears. I have JR DS281 all around. Do they make a metal gearset thor these? And where can I find them?

Before you go and buy all new servos, just how is the elevator stripping? Strips after a crash? Is the servo binding while on the bench?

I'm pretty sure it's not from crashing. This is the second servo I replaced. It seems to work fine while I'm testing the heli on the ground. But it seems in that short of time it strips.

Two servos stripping without a crash? Buying metal gear servos is not fixing the problem, it is prolonging the inevitable. Sounds as though it needs to be corrected mechanically.

No, unfortunately they dont have metal gears for those servos.

Those are only rated for 17oz torque compared to average of 25oz. (minimun)

More sporty than 3D.
