If you force a servo hard enough you can strip the gears.

Well it's not really the 'long way'. You still need to get the servo arm correctly installed in the first place. The sub-trim on a computer radio is really for fine tuning.

I've had good success with CommonSenseRC Lipo's. I use a 3S 1250mAh for my Slo-V. Nice thing about them is they are 2C charge capable... they can be charged in 30min.

I would suggest the one I mentioned. Keep the wattage low... 25-35W maximum is plenty for light work without overheating the components.
