You've already helped enough... but if you or anyone else has a good photo of the tail servo setup that would be most useful as I know i'll have to deal with that soon!

All the best

The attached pic shows how I set my V-tail servos (with pushrods crossing to opposite tail surface -not necessary... just easier). And as soon as the video is done being prepared on Vimeo in about 30 minutes, the following will show all the control action:
