Do I need to be concerned that the wheel collar is touching the back of the motor or do I need to leave a gap ?

I also think the hs65HB are one of the most reliable servos out there, 100% sloopfree, plenty of power for this aplications... to me one of the best servos(analog) ever made(in terms of reliabiletty, no sloop over time, accuracy,and price)

even if hyp 09 are thinner and fit better, from what Ive seen and read, I would not buy them again, after the pot issues thay have?/had... Id rather buy the new Hitec expensive slim servos or Dymond 60 or similiar if to fit the Wing pocket/servo covers.

The ONLY problem with the 65 servos are they are to big in width, thats why I did managed to get bigger servocovers for my Viper in wing , Thanks Tim

7 years of flying with the hs65hb, never had one problem, no sloop over time, GREAT servos..

Yep, I've been using Hs 65hb's for a couple of seasons now in my Escapes with zero issues also, they seem great! But I test fitted them in the Swist wing and they fit fine by removing the mounting flanges, but alas....they are too thick to fit under the CF servo covers provided.

I love those hs65hb's. No slop ever and never had one fail. I think I got servo covers from soaring usa that worked. They have a little bulge that fits the thicker servo's.

After seeing what happened to VooDoo's servo control arm when the flutter hit there is no way I am using anything but aluminum above 225mph on any of my speed planes. Am switching the Monster to MKS thin wing with aluminum arms and aluminum control horns.

I think nylon wears better actually. If you're running a clevis or Z/L bends into a metal control horn, vibration will make it sloppy really quickly. If you want to run a metal control horn Id strongly suggest sticking to ball links only.

Nice fix! Pretty sure the Avioniks are done the same way with the brass inserts. Mine is 4 years old and the threads are still good . There's no need to really crank down on the bolts. If you're concerned about them losening just get some cheap clear tape and put over the bolts before you fly so they cant vibrate loose
