I've just adopted a new oiling routine. I dab on a bit of sewing machine oil with a Q tip on my tail rotor shaft and mainshaft, having first cleaned the shafts with another Q tip, at the start of every flying session. I've been monitoring a Gotek 9257 tail servo that has been running up to 130f - but since I started oiling, I've not seen it get to more than 105f. I know it's not a particularly well controlled experiment, but it seems encouraging.
