Just for an experiment, I put these servo tabs on my old beater Corby Starlett. I had to be careful how much throw they have, as if you overdrive it, it will force the surface hard to the end. I went one hole at a time, test flying it at each one till finally the roll rate went way up like I put the next size bigger servo in it. After researching them, I found the tab had to be no bigger than 10% of the area of the control surface. Also said it took about 75% of the load off the servo.
