Question Trim Tabs

Can anyone answer a question for me? Why do we not use trim tabs on RC aircraft, (no pilot on board to fight the control surfaces, right, just servos, if forces are to much, get a better servo)? I know theres a trade off with drag,.. just thinking out loud and I began to wonder is all!
