Replaced the flap servo with an identical item, think I found the reason why previous one was stripped. There's a plastic removable cover over the right and left hand flap servos, held in place with silicone(I think). The servo arm travels from the forward almost horizontal position at zero flaps to almost vertical at mid flap and then rearward and almost horizontal at max flaps. At the vertical position the end of the servo arm is way over the level of the servo cover, and as soon as you loosen the cover and move the flaps you see the cover get impacted. I checked the side where the servo is not yet stripped and the same thing is happening. I am going to keep the covers off! You guys with Timbers might want to check this out. Hopefully my plane is just a one-off and others won't have an issue.

I hope the metal gears do not wear out too fast!
I just bought a Turbo Timber and I expect to fly it long time at your club soon!
Delivering my adhesion form today...
And yes, you know your stuff!
In their product video presentation they mention that the metal gear servo will prevent the servo to be easily stripped by knocking them accidentally during handling. But they did not mention they last less longer... hum...

I found the problem was the flap servo arms were hitting the plastic covers at the first flap setting. You might want to check that on your new Timber.
