Easy fix! However when I got home I realized that this aileron servo has a larger diameter shaft and finer threads then all of the spare servo arms I had. Obviously there are different servo output shafts, but all the servos I have are small like the PZ servo. The question is how to I locate the correct servo arm? Are there names for each type of servo output shaft?
If you Slammed Down hard on the belly of that model and did not come down nicely (greased landing) then, I highly recommend to get yourself a NEW Servo for the Aileron such as the PKZ1081 and you can see it is a long lead servo ANALOG!
These servos have nylon gears and no telling if they have some cracks on the teeth train and you don't want to find out in the air once you get that model air worthy again!
I would not trust that servo, matter of fact I would check the other one as well.
