I picked up a used Trex 450 (stock with DS 410's) that I've been having fun flying at the park near my home. I'm not sure how many flights I have on it now, but it's at least 30-40.

I'm assuming the servos (particularly, the front right) are going out? I'd appreciate any insight/experience you have with this. I have a new, unopened set of HS65 MG's on the shelf I was saving for my first crash. Maybe it's time to go ahead and install them?

Try changing the servos then check the radio. DX8's aren't known to have the most accurate stick pots. Plug the new servos into the rx one by one to isolate the servo issues.

You might check to see if that front right servo is missing any teeth from the gears. Being as they are used servos, may have been crashed before.
