Default Hitec HS-5245MG servo went bad

I just purchased 3 of these servos for a brand new SAB Goblin 500. I started building the Goblin this weekend but one of my servos (elevator) suddenly stopped responding. My setup includes ESC(CC Talon 90), Motor(Quantum 4120-1200), Cyclic(Hitec 5245MG), Rudder(Futaba 9256), and Nanotech 3300mAh 25C LiPo.

I'm a little concerned about Hitech servos on this Goblin. Has anyone else had problems with these servos?

Servo is as recommended by the heli manufacturer and not known for early demise unless user induced:
. Servo - DIY Analysis of Servo Problems and Repair
. Servo - Burnout. Cause & Prevention

Much more information available under sub sections
"ESC & BEC - Setup to prevent majority of all RF Problems, Brownouts & Crashes"
"Glitches & Jitter in Receiver, Servo & ESC - Causes and Cures"
"Servo - Alterations, Calculators, Databases, Leads, Repairs, Convert to an ESC or winch & FAQ."

I run HS-5245mg's on my 500 size. I had one burn up in a crash due to the gears jamming. Hitec does have a repair service, and will likely repair or replace your defective servo under warranty. Haven't had to talk with to many manufacturers yet, but I have with Hitec. They seemed very willing to help me even when I explained my problem is from crash damage. Check out their website and send them an email.
