Batwing's servo mount mod

I have NEVER been a fan of gluing a servo to anything and I think that foam tape is just one step above glue. I want to be able to remove, replace and adjust servos as needed and came upon a piece of hardware that facilitates this without adding unwanted weight or complexity. The piece I am currently using is a Hitech Universal Micro Servo Wing Mount PN 56307 available from Hobby Lobby (and I am sure several other hobby distributors). The servo in the pictures is a Hitech HS-81 although the mounting unit has adaptors included for most any servo brand. This unit is designed for wing mounting aileron servos but works great for other things as well. In addition to protecting the servo, it has fairings for the pushrod exit which improves aerodynamics and the unit also allows for easy removal of the servo.
