Default aluminum servo horns

I bought losi aluminum servo horns for my jr and hi tech servos. I have never used thease before. My question is, are they supposed to just go on easy? Hard?? do they snap on?? because as of now i am pushing as hard as i can and they wont' go on. I thought about letting the screw push it down, bought i thought i would ask someone who knows so i don't mess up my servos.


anyone??


Oh and just got my airtronics m11. Man that is one conffusing as hell computer. So confusing i am thinking about taking it back.

All of mine seemed to go on hard. I believe it might have something to do with the anodizing on the arm and the output shaft.

You did buy the correct horn for your servo right? If so, push down with your thumb until its as snug as you can get it, then screw it down. Small dab of threadlock on the screw..I mean small!!

M11 radio is not that bad, read the intructions...you'll get the hang of it

I dont know about the jr but on my 7955 the alluminum horn did take a little fanagling to get it on. Just kind of try and feel where the splines line up. I do usually give it a little tap with the back of a scew driver to get it the rest of the way on.

I run dynamite alum servo horns on all my JR servos and they always seem to go on hard at first but then I tighten them down the rest of the way with the screw and they are fine. Like sharkman said, I think it has to do with the anodizing. You should be good.

Every one of the Losi servo horns I have bought go on hard the 1st couple times. But these horns develop slop and strip easy I dont use them any more. I haven't had the problem with the dynamite ones yet. Time will tell. But yes the Losi ones go on very hard.
