Default Servo saver mod

Edit: This can apply to any micro that uses rotary servos, really. I've personally done it on several Walkeras as well as my 150.

Back when I first started flying, I was flying Walkera micros. They've been using rotary servos for a while, and I was constantly stripping servo gears. Once I found the servo saver mod, I never stripped another servo. I've since done the same mod on my 150 and as expected, have not stripped a servo since. Instead, the servo arm jumps, and you just have to put it back before you fly again.

Follow these instructions: http://benmlee.com/Genius_Servo_Saver.htm

Make sure you read every step. If the arm is too loose, put some kind of rubber ring around it to make it tight. Pic attached below of what I've done.
