Great vid WC!

I had a bad tail wag on my TRex 250 and was able to get rid of most of my wag by creating my own hole even closer to the center than the hole that the servo horn came with!

It is a great technique indeed!

Keep in mind that the closer to the center of the servo the slower the response of the tail rotor. You should use fast response servos if doing so.

Also it limits the total amount of throw, so the tail rotor will not move as much as it did previously. Slower piros, maybe not enough authority to stop a spin at full power application.
