I love align servos .. good price, great performance.
I'd actually like to figure out a way to frame mount a larger servo like a ds520 and use a carbon pushrod to pivot the tail motor. Just don't have the time to mess with that.
The Carbon tail rod is an interesting idea. I know the Multiwii scarab has 2 rotating front arms and I've seen other kits with rotating tail booms. They all had landing skids of some type to free up the rotating booms.
