Electric Flight - - SHOPTIPS -

A friend of mine lost his plane re­cently be­cause the tape on his el­e­va­tor servo came loose dur­ing flight. When I use dou­ble-sided foam servo tape, I al­ways clean the servo case with some rub­bing al­co­hol and then ap­ply some clear tape to the case be­fore ap­ply­ing the foam tape. I also make sure the sur­face to which I stick the servo is clean for a proper bond. If your servo case is dirty and has left­over foam tape ad­he­sive in it, be sure to clean it be­fore re­in­stalling the servo. I have found that Crayon Away works great for re­mov­ing left­over tape residue. —Phillip Draper, Columbus, Ohio
