Tightening up worn out servo saver

Benmlee came up with an awesome idea for saving the servo gears from stripping

However, my servo savers soon began slipping during normal flight so to tighten them up I did the following.

Took a genius o-ring and wrapped it around the servo arm. It takes a little effort to get it on there but it will go on, where there's a will there's a way Then I used some plastic from a plastic document folder (used a hole punch) as a makeshift washer to keep the o-ring from slipping off.

*edit* I now have over 200 flights on these and can confirm they kick a$$. New o-rings will be tighter, but still will slip in a crash. Worn out o-rings will need to be re-set more often, even in lighter crashes...but will still hold strong during hard flying.

O-rings are stock and can be purchased in the feathering shaft set (it's a good idea to have a couple spare feathering shafts anyway)
