Default General and DS35 tip I found

So I rebuilt my 130 and swapped out a servo on the cyclic and replaced the tail with a DS35. I failed to tag or replace the remaining servos in their original location-so once I had it all built up, it would just spin around!! Thought it was a bad tail servo or had it reversed but swapped it out and still had same problem.
So after noticing most people had it placed on the opposite side of the boom, I switched it-so looking at it tail in-I had the servo on the right side-and moved it to the left side. I also had a problem with the servo failing to work properly. After examining the MH mount-I loosened the screws a bit and bingo-I think I had the mount on too tight which possibly bound the gears-not sure but worked great after I did this. I remember reading how some people removed the plastic sleeve-which I left on and is why I thought about loosening the screws.
Last problem was I had the cyclic servos reversed on the board. Swapped them and now my 130 is flying once again! Was so happy since it is my every day front yard flier! I upgraded the motor and tail case. Do notice quite a bit more zip to it with the aftermarket motor! Hoping to fly it today after work-thought I'd post this hoping might help someone having same issues.

I use a Sharpie to mark all servo plugs. Conveniently, when you look from front of heli each servo plug has 4 "teeth" facing front. I mark the 1st servo on it's 1st tooth, 2nd the 2nd, etc. Have never mixed them up again.

I like my method in that I don't need different colored Sharpies which are not as easy to see as black marks and I don't need to check and match color on the socket. If I have 1st tooth marked on the servo plug it goes in the 1st slot.

nose left, side on servos facing go to the outer plugs, tail goes to far right plug nose on, the 2 servos on the other side go to the 2 middle plugs with a 50% chance of getting them round the right way lol
