Do any of you who have the xcell 1005 with the rear mounted muffler, put some kind of heat shield between the muffler and the rear mounter tail servo. My tail servo seems to be getting hot.

It's pretty normal : But Spend Extra Time Setting up and Mechanically trimming YAW Rate
Keep a Eye on them:

Here is one of mine : It helps /White on top / Polished on the bottom side-

That heat shield is a great idea. I would recomend that you put a piece of reflective aluminum HVAC tape (the all metal foil type) on the bottom of the shield.

This will act as a radiant barrier, just like the heat sheilds put near exhaust components on cars.

If you are really bored you could use some Mothers aluminum polish to polish the exposed side of the tape to a bright mirror finish.
