So it can only be the plane. First time this happened I didn't realise I wasn't supposed to exceed 100% travel on the servo settings. I changed this for MiG # 2 to 90% but still had the problem. MiG #2 was killed when the servo jammed down and it totalled the fuselage once again. On MiG #3 I Went as low as 80% but after maybe 50 flights it's now playing up.

The new canopy comes with a hole at the front and slots above the servo, so I wondered if it was getting too hot HH noticed and this is a solution to elevator servo failure?

I absolutely love the little MiG so much so I have #4 in parts waiting

You're all right on HH discontinued the wrong plane.
Mine has the hole in the canopy front, and the vents on the top plastic part piece, and I got mine right when they started selling it. Never have had to lower servo travel under 100%, using a DX7s. Never had a problem with any of the servos in my UMX planes, guess I'm lucky. Micro heli's is where I had all my tiny servo issues. I think the Habu flies much better than the Mig overall...but can't beat the Mig for scale warbird coolness.

Mine has no holes. Got mine NIB in the classifieds here on rcg, but I know they had been out for a while when I did. Also never had to lower travel to less than 100% on any of my umx planes either. Don't have the habu, but the Mig IS cool....

After moving the battery farther aft for a better CG mine flew well on low rates. The low rates prevent the ailerons from trying to travel too far (causing a servo to jam).

Hmm, I do always fly on low rate ailerons too, just cause full rates are faster than I want/need. I guess maybe that has saved my servos even though I'm not limiting overall travel. I just usually am flying on 80% travel and i think 25% expo on ailerons, full everything else.

Do you guys ever use anything to clean your linear servos? I'd never even thought/considered it until I started flying a little blade 130x with the same type of servos. It was in that thread that I heard of cleaning them with some deoxit. I got some, and routinely use it on all of my linear servos, helis and planes. Just throwing that out there for any, like I, that had never thought of it.

Yes I do use Deoxit to clean and then lube. It doesn't take much time to do it. Only needs it once a year if you fly often.

Only use deoxit on parts you no longer need. Seriously bad on pots.

+1k!

DeoxIT is overwhelmingly the product of choice amongst us audio & electronics professionals for cleaning, deoxidizing, and rejuvenating pots, sliders, and switches. I use DeoxIT D5 to clean & deoxidize the resistive strip & wiper-arm on these UM linears, and I follow-up periodically with a shot of DeoxIT F5 Faderlube to protect the resistive strip & restore its natural lubricity. I can't even remember the last time I had a UM servo problem. Many of 'em are well-past the 100-hr mark.

I think DeOxit is used in the music industry for electric guitars.

Yes. We music industry professionals also use it on the pots & sliders in mixing consoles, equalizers, amps, studio recording equipment, etc. We RF electronics professionals also use it on the pots in two-way radio transceivers, and also on the pots & sliders in broadcast studio gear.
