Servos ive never had die unless I destroy them: hxt900, hxt dmg16, mg 14.just saying!
Same. My most dangerous and (almost) most expensive servo failure was a HS-5065MG on the elevator of a PA Bandit. Completely unprovoked, the thing just kicked a few times and died while I was working on mixes on the ground. Had it happened a few minutes of radio time earlier or later, the plane would have been in the air, and I'm nowhere near good enough a pilot to bring it down without the elevator

I've got dozens of HXT900s in various planes, and I honestly can't recall ever having to replace one that I hadn't just horribly abused in some fashion.
