Hi Konrad -

Thanks for the reply. I was beginning to think I was the only one alive with a Pulsar. Your solution to the tail servos is very ingenious, especially the use of just 4 wires to handle both servos. What did you do with your antenna? I've threaded antennas down carbon tube fuselages before without any problems but that doesn't stop me from wondering what will happen the next time.

I have the Pulsar with elevons only; no ailerons. I finally set it up with the carbon pushrods that came with the plane, attaching wire fittings at each end with rubberized CA and heat shrink tubing. I placed the servos at the back of the space under the wing, inline and the Rx ahead of them on a sloped bulkhead. The battery (7 cells, 500 mah Sanyo NiCads, folded with three on top and four on the bottom) is just in front of the Rx leaving just enough space for the motor, gear box and ESC.

Thanks, again.

Ron
