Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I don't have any experience with these kinds of things. Trying to open the transmitter and replace parts would be a last resort for me. I'm afraid I'd break it and be unable to fix it.

You can program how far to turn the servo, including not turning it at all in one direction, so it seems like there should be a programming option for not having the servo respond to moving the sticks back to the neutral position. I guess I can send Futaba an email to ask.

I thought about using some kind of ball-bearing setup like you described, but I've never dealt with ball-bearings before, or ever done an r/c airplane rudder. So mounting the mast directly on the servo seemed like the most simple and direct way to go.

Good news is I can always try again if my first attempts fail, and I have all of you experienced and so-much-more-skilled people to help with advice.
