    There are lots of ways to do that. Most are wrong.

    you won't need those .you could grind the tabs off so so it sits flush but that's it to mount it

    I noticed the stock arm doesn't fit with the new servo. Do I need to get another arm? I drilled the arm's hole a little bigger to fit the stock screw in.

    you can use the 4 way horn and cut 3 of them off and later use something like a 55701 horn http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXCRT5

    Every time a new guy has a servo fail...so like 50 said...every other day!

    Suprisingly mine is still holding up after a lot of hard bashing, I guess I'm one of the FEW lucky ones, but I do have a upgrade on the way for that time!

    Haven't had a problem with a stock servo yet, and I've got three mini's. The upgraded servos are nice though.

    You guys that are getting that much out of the stock servo are lucky, I went through 3 stockers in the first year until I finally had had enough and went and picked up a couple of the Turn igy 390's.
