How to change Servo library default timer?

im building a quadcopter and
I use SERVO library and APM RC_CHANNEL library radio.
Both libraries use timers and I’m guessing that the program is not working properly because they use the same timer.
How do I change the default timer in the SERVO library?

this the code in the library:

#include <avr/interrupt.h>
#include <Arduino.h> 

#include "Servo.h"

#define usToTicks(_us)    (( clockCyclesPerMicrosecond()* _us) / 8)     // converts microseconds to tick (assumes prescale of 8)  // 12 Aug 2009
#define ticksToUs(_ticks) (( (unsigned)_ticks * 8)/ clockCyclesPerMicrosecond() ) // converts from ticks back to microseconds


#define TRIM_DURATION       2                               // compensation ticks to trim adjust for digitalWrite delays // 12 August 2009

//#define NBR_TIMERS        (MAX_SERVOS / SERVOS_PER_TIMER)

static servo_t servos[MAX_SERVOS];  
static volatile int8_t Channel[_Nbr_16timers ]; 

uint8_t ServoCount = 0;                                   


// convenience macros
#define SERVO_INDEX_TO_TIMER(_servo_nbr) ((timer16_Sequence_t)(_servo_nbr / SERVOS_PER_TIMER)) 
#define SERVO_INDEX_TO_CHANNEL(_servo_nbr) (_servo_nbr % SERVOS_PER_TIMER)  
#define SERVO_INDEX(_timer,_channel)  ((_timer*SERVOS_PER_TIMER) + _channel) 
#define SERVO(_timer,_channel)  (servos[SERVO_INDEX(_timer,_channel)]) 

#define SERVO_MIN() (MIN_PULSE_WIDTH - this->min * 4) 
#define SERVO_MAX() (MAX_PULSE_WIDTH - this->max * 4)

  else{
    if( SERVO_INDEX(timer,Channel[timer]) < ServoCount && SERVO(timer,Channel[timer]).Pin.isActive == true )

How do I change the default timer in the SERVO library?

It may be easier to use the ServoTimer2 library

I never heard of this library, but only by the name I can understand that it really would be a better idea.
I'll look for it.
