Yep it was the 306. Sorry should have mentioned that to help others. No crash. I have yet to look inside the servo or inspect the frame, was too tired last night. I think the frame is fine it was more a firm landing but I'm pretty sure the servo splines stripped.

I suppose I could take another 306 from my 450 or even a 922 for now... do NOT use the 306. Would hate for anyone to crash their expensive talon because of the tail servo.

I will go through some of the gears I have and see of any might fit.

Does the tail really need to be that fast? It's not like a heli where the tail rotor acts directly laterally. I wouldn't even mind a mini-sized servo since I have a couple of those lying around that are 0.07s but might be way too heavy plus I'd have to modify the tray. ugh.

this servo actually looks really nice. plastic looks like good quality.
