I have the same concerns.  The constant pressure is considered a good thing for launching but it does sound like a strain on the servo.  The same problems occur with the pull-pull method.  Mark also mentioned that he had to modify the spring to prevent distortion at the hinge line which is another problem reported with the string/spring method.   Mark, Can you upload some photos of your T spring instilation so we can see the solution you came up with?   John  ________________________________ From: kb11troy <kb10troy@...> To: BugHLG@yahoogroups.com Sent: Friday, November 18, 2011 4:22 AM Subject: [BugHLG] Re: Carbon rods in Dubro micro "clamp" for the servo.. I've wondered about the string/spring method as well. I used the wire with etched tubing because I had it left over from another DLG build. The thing that concerns me about the string/spring setup is that the servos will always be fighting against the pull of the spring- probably using more juice from the battery and maybe putting more wear on the servos. Any thoughts on this? I'm not putting it down by any means. It's a very popular technique with the competition DLG crowd.
