Be gentle with the servo as it's got no screws holding it together, just some brittle shrink wrap.

Putting a new one in is a snap, just connect the extension and drop it down through the fuse. You might need to use that hook again to pull it thru to the receiver tray. I suggest a few drops of foam-tac to hold the servo in, just in case it needs replacing again.
Also the rudder servo wiring passes through the elevator servo opening so if the elevator servo is pulled loose it helps by giving you a view hole and some extra space.

Here's a link to the post he made.

Thanks! (And it just occurred to me that I have a spare motor from my QQ Edge that I can use. DUH!)

The original motor for these EF 280 Planes has great power but seems to be fragile. I also replaced mine and as I didn't want to spend more than 30$ for a motor this size I went with this one from HK.

The power is great, very similar to the original. But itís quite some grams heavier, mostly due to the quit massive aluminium mount. I had†P.I.Engineer†3d print me a mount (2 pieces in one) in plastic. It worked out just great for a lot less money than the original motor.
