I have the H-K P-40N 1700. I think the flight loads are modest enough on these planes but it's the snatching and whiplash they get from the larger and heavier control surfaces while moving across the ground that eats the plastic gears up, as much as anything else. I went to metal geared servos on the tail surfaces for that reason.
