Very good news, not to be forgotten. With modern radio this does make it easier for servo end point travel. One thing I have over the Years is to add into the throttle circuit a piece of silicone fuel tubing. This will stop a lot of engine vibration traveling back down the cable and into the servo. This travel has next to no friction (if installed correctly) and a piece of silicone tubing with a 1/2" (12 mm ) spaceing will do the job. I put it in a place near the servo where I can see it. The added advantage is when one day you might save your servo when the throttle has jambed or cumbed up over time. The silicon tube will bend. Cheers. Wood Pecker.
