Failed there, unfortunately......Luckily it was only minor damage. However, it is already fixed & replaced with Savox 0255 .
These were the servos that "seemed" to be a Savox clone or copy. Exactly the same size, spline etc. Now in the bin. Ho Hum....
Know the feeling unfortunately, yep bin them all as they will drop off like flies from now on.

I really should finish my video hat....

It wasn't really "spectacular". I actually continued to fly after it happened but the plane "felt sloppy" so I landed and found the damage. She'll be fixed soon enough. It also needs the landing gear mounting re-built because of my multiple elevator landings from 200 feet. and it continually shows me how tough it is.
