Default Sanwa 971 LP servo slob

Hey people,

Been using the Sanwa 971 for some time, but noticed some things.
I have 4 servo`s and they all have the same thing.

They all have a lot of gear slob, meaning the gears are not as tight as wanted.
The spline axle has radial play, think this is a bearing problem.
(i use a servosaver and dont crash anymore)

i opened the servo and they are the same as the Savox 1251, the gears are the same and can be changed, and the print etc. looks the same.
Think only the casing is different.

Does somebody experiences the same or has a solution for the things mentioned.

No issue here. I've been using those servos all year in my Serpent 747 and 748 and have not noticed any slop whatsoever. Great servos at the price point.

Weird, on the club maybe 10 people have these servo`s, they al have the slob in the gearing.

What i did is change to savox gears and know al the slob is gone.
Still a cheap solution, i ordered the Savox gears for al my Sanwa 971`s
