Servo is controled by the pitch stabilization of the Naze32, and also with a slider on my Taranis

Oh sorry, it's 4.29 ! http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ht_Right_.html

To Waltr : Yes Baseflight, i'll send you the setup tomorrow..

I just think that to protect the servo against shocks, we can use two axes held by some shrink tube, just tight enough...

Those little linear servos are pretty tough, they wont need any extra protection. Just a squirt of Deoxit when they start to get twitchy

MID is set to 1500 by default because i use Aux3 to control the pitch..
If not, set it to 1000

Yes, that is what he did. It is a very simple but light weight and reliable method.
It looks like he has two holes in the top plate for each cable tie.

Nothing to add, thanks

The mounting bracket is hand cut in a square PVC profile
