Yes, without question the problem is due to an underpowered servo. The HS-65 is the strongest micro-sized servo I have and I'm trying to keep things as light as possible, but there is plenty of room to upgrade to a HS-80 or something similar. Next one I build will probably have an HS-80 in it. I wish someone made a micro retract servo with extra low and slow gearing.. that would be the perfect solution.
