Question Alternate Servo Horns for Futaba S3156MG Servos?

Hey Guys -

I recently installed three Futaba S3156MG servos into my TREX 450SEv2 and the performance of these servos is great, but the stock servo horns are truly sucky. They are thin, flimsy, and are just not a good fit for such a high-speed and high-torque micro-servo (0.11 s and 33 oz-in torque at 6.0V). Anyone know of other options for the servo horns? I heard the servo horns from BPHobbies for the PowerHD servos work, but unfortunately, they are always out of stock on the ones that fit (check out the link at http://www.bphobbies.com/view.asp?id=C0706234). Any other options?

Thanks!

I use these servos too, and I completely agree, still seaching for an alternative though. If you find one can you let me know, and i'll do the same
