Now I pin the elevator in place and mark where I will install the horn. It will have to go slightly off to one side of the elevator as the cable is dead center. Make a line. I take the diamond cutter pictured earlier and cut the slot for the horn. The horns will be provided cut to shape but no holes will be drilled in them as there are many different methods and wire sizes etc. one can build this model. As for the elevator, the hole location will vary depending on where the pushrod is exiting the fuse so I glue in the horn first and take a dremel with a 1MM bit and make the hole after I have marked it's location. Once it is all in place I glue the cable solid into the elevator horn. It does not pivot anymore but flexes slightly.

This concludes the elevator servo install. I will pick up from here later. Time to rest.
