I consider myself a DS76T evangelist.

I don't know for certain why it works, but I know that installing a DS76T fixes all sorts of 130X issues, just like magic.

It just works...

Plain and simple

The only thing I don't understand is why it took so long to be discovered

None of the locals here knew about it...and the 130X was huge in Fargo for several years after it's release

If I recall, the 76t did not enter the heli world until the 180CFX was released.
Before that the DS76, no t designation, was used but needed the servo plug to be changed.
The go to servo before that was the original DS35 released under the E-Flite brand.( They later screwed up the 35 by changing the internal servo electronics, rendering it useless.)

For purposes of this thread...

Nearly any micro-size servo will work...DS76T & TJ have plastic cases so prolly a bit lighter

DS76T
DS76TJ
KST215
H3060
BK3005

Any many others

I stand corrected, the tj is the micro plug version on the 180.

I found out about it ("discovered" is probably not quite accurate in my case, as I didn't independently find out that the DS76T works on a 130X) fairly soon after I got my first 130X, and you know where I live, Jon.

I remember we discussed it then. Once I got wise to the wonders of the DS76T, I started having a lot fewer tail issues.

If anyone else is thinking of the servo swap to the DS76T (or others) and having an issue finding the correct servo mounts...

Nexrc has (as of this writing) 10 pairs on their website (silver and red)

Red
https://www.nexrc.com/microheli-alum...=130X&limit=50

Silver
https://www.nexrc.com/microheli-alum...=130X&limit=50

The CF stiffener is easily available too...quite a few on eBay
(Drill the holes to 2mm if using the 180CFX stiffener - LX1627)
M2 x 8mm screws replace the stock and allow for the CF stiffener

Every 130X I own has the DS76T...not a single issue with any of them
