My servo is really *&%$@ up. It never stops trying to center itself. Does anyone have any tips on how to stop this?

T Man,

Sounds like a broken tooth or broken teeth on one or more of the servo gears.
Strip the front servo down and examine those gears carefully.

The gears are fine.

I have the same problem. Try cleaning the position potentiometer inside the servo with electronic cleaner. It can also be a good help to replace the antenna with a piece of wire soldered directly to the reciever. Cut off the original antenna about 1 inch above the fastener screw. Put the wire inside a plastic tube and stick the tube on to the remaining part of the original antenna.
