I had to use a dremel disc-wheel-cutter, per James' guidance, on removing material from the socked spar in order to get the servo to slide back enough due to the tab on the servo. Potentially that is your issue? I can get a photo tonight.

Wouldn't you be better off removing the servo tab than cutting into the spar?

It's not like you are going to need the tab again?

I just cut a tab sized slot in the spar sock in the right location. The only real 'mount' was the front rail. Everything else was potted in. 1 screw

That's what I did, using the KST DS135s, and they fit nicely and the control rods align perfectly. Having the servo pop out when crashing, like Tim says, will save you replacing busted control/servo horns.

My 10mm KSTs won't slide far enough under the skins to align the pushrods - the rear servo lug isn't touching the spar either. I'll have to use 9mm servos (Hyperions) or 6100s which have a smaller footprint.

I didn't say it was the BEST idea - but i wedged the servo tab in with epoxy so it's all pretty solid now. I guess I liked the idea of it being fitted in-place. Oh well.

Don't worry about glueing servo's in as the skins are tough enough to pop them out easy if needed , And often pop in big landing's which has happened more than I can remember to all of us who fly them. Is a regular thing that happens.
Use the thread search for pic's and you will see winch doc's set up with turnigy 777 on the first page.
I like to use Quick Grip when glueing in servos. No more popping free as it is rather rubbery. May not be available internationally.

Quick grip or similar is available here , also goop give ok results as well with that little bit if give very forgiving on hard landings. I do like epoxy for that rock solid feel but does pop occasionally when I land at 100mph

There's no right or wrong way guys , just glue them in and fly the wing's off it

The best thing here is all the cool info I jot down to make my future Giz fly with no issues. Don't see how gooping and using servo screw could the servo still pop out.

I glue them in with 5 min epoxy and dont mind if they pop out. Saves smashing thé servo. Glued thé fin on with Sika.
