Flap servos mounting

The servos for flaps were glued in today with 6min epoxy, to get things moving.

I used servo frames suitable for Futaba S3150 which is a reliable servo I have good experience with.

Food plastic was put between the servo and frame before glued in, and removed after. Now a broken gear in the servo is no problem later.

I used 3mm threaded steel for linkage, and 3mm dubro link, these are being zapped, I know some solder it, but zap works for me.

Servos were glued in based on both linkages 5,8mm long, and got the right angle in the servos. I was happy with the flap deflection that came out of this.

I assume / hope 80+ degrees.
