Are you guys using the rubber grommets and little metal inserts on your servos or are you just hard mounting your servos to the mounts. I remember seeing/reading about people not using the rubber bits anymore.
Thanks

I am from the old school.
Other than 450 size helicopters, I never hard mount a servo.

I agree with Ray. The rubber grommets and inserts act as absorbers for vibrations, heavy loads and might save the servo ears in the event of a crash.

with the Torqs you actually have to use them as they act as a spacer.
but yes always use them.

Depends...
I do whatever it takes to line up the rods to the awash. I want these to be perfectly parallel to the main shaft at zero pitch

On my goblin 700 using the torque HV servos I had to use the rubber things or the rods would not have been parallel to the main shaft

Other servos might 'have out of true' runs to the swash when the rubber things are used

Anyone know where I can buy the metal inserts, they are missing from three of the torque servos bought from another forum member.

Thanks
