Default Screws On Servo

To be honest with you....those tiny little screws are soo tiny. The heads themselves stripped. It seems like one was stripped to begin with from the factory! I wasn't even ever able to unscrew it because the head stripped! How am i to now unscrew those screws? a tiny dab of epoxy or superglue on the screwdrive momentairly? any suggestions? Yeah, it does stink !

Something that small a dab of CA may work! I'm sure they are too small to use a cutting disk to make a slot for a flat head but it may be worth a try if you desperate.

Default CA GLUE

I'll give that a try for sure, a dab of CA Glue......anything to rescue these servos, I even got brand new gear sets for all three.
I'm wondering why even after replacing one of the servos with fresh gears, it still turning like theres crunching going on, its not buttersmooth like it was new. Am i doing something wrong, or is something else possibly wrong with the servo?

Did you reapply grease to the gears?

Default Greased

Yes I reapplied some grease but i never truly all the way screwed back together the servo. i'll test it as soon as I can figure out if i can get replacement screws for my servos somewhere out there on the market. These screws are very tiny. sometimes i found that my servos appeared "crunchy" but when in use...they worked just fine...as they supposed to move freely when not in use?

that is one of those things i would have to see to determine if it would be an issue. just make sure that the servo doesn't get any hotter then the others and it should be fine.

Default servos

Thanks, one servo doesn't get hotter than any other, so thats a good thing. anything else I need to watch out for? sometimes they are difficult to move by hand, but when all powered up and in use, they move as they should....so i guess this might be normal? No heat and no odd crunching noises....i'll try to work it out

As long as its not getting hot I wouldn't worry too much but do keep an eye on it.

Can you post a picture of the screw. Sometimes I'm able to use a Dermal cut a slot and use a flat head screw driver.

Default servo screw

so i sat down and figured out a 5/64" screwdriver is good enough to work with the 4 tiny screws in the back of the servo, I was able to get the screws out! !
One servo is still bad, it vibrates when it gets stuck...maybe a very small broken chip is in there somewhere, ( its doing this with a fresh set of gears ) or maybe the motor in the servo is broken. Has this happened to anyone?

Does it vibrate if the horn is not attached? If it only vibrates when the servo horn is attached there is binding in the linkage somewhere.

Default Servo Binding/Buzzing

The servo works fine for a short period of time. All range is present on the servo until at a random given point of time it stop moving and starts buzzing and vibrating. So for a short period of time it works fine, then bam....something is wrong! I try to move the controls around and sometimes it gets it out of being the stuck state. But when it gets "stuck" its bad and just vibrates and doesn't do what it is supposed to do. Any ideas ?

Turns out that a different screw driver did the trick......the screwdriver i was using wasn't performing as good as another one i used....and so i got the screw out much easier....the right tools make the biggest differences in the world i guess i can now say ! !

Yes, if you use the correct the screwdriver, the screw will not be stripped.
Wish you could like it!
