Yeah, like 100 cycles. Not a bad idea with any servo, but these ones especially. I believe Horizon actually tests the servos, which would put them ahead of other manufacturers, but a few more cycles in testing would be a good thing.
I'm losing interest in these linear servos, as I had one fail due to an IC failure after a handful of cycles. Removing it from the wing after neatly fairing it in, was not something I was thrilled with doing. I took it apart and noticed that the wiper leaves were not all aligned to the same height also, when unsprung. This was not the problem, but it's not a bad thing to have equal pressure on all of them, since they are all part of the same leaf spring contact. They can be carefully tweaked and reassembled for maximum contact.
Speaking of micro seaplanes, the servo was on a micro Guillows Beaver. Still haven't got it out yet. Hopefully it will be a nice little pond flyer.
