Installing |Servo's

Well Glueing them is the short answer, The best way is to wrap them in electrical tape first then glue them, keeping the glue on the electrical tape makes them somewhat removable.

...or you could use RTV silicone if you are embedding the servo.

A hot glue gun works great to glue servos in. I take a 300 watt inverter and the hot glue gun to the field for instant repairs. Much of the Superstar is put together with it as well. About 10 bucks at CTC Has a two speed watt switch on the back.
Tried for my kamikazi pilots licence. Flunked the test.

Clean the servo with rubing alcahol and mix up some 5 min epoxie and glue em down

The glue can be pried off later. It doesn't seem to bond right into the servo plastic.

I have seen gyro tape work very well.They don't come off and if need be you can remove your servos with a some effort and not hurt anything.

my 2cents.
