Too late, Michael, I already ordered a Slick. With the servos Steve recommended.

Steve (JetPlaneFlyer), I'd be interested in knowing what and where you reinforced.

And I will hold you all personally responsible if it doesn't work out. No, of course I won't! I love the advice you guys are dispensing.

Got home from Vegas and started the assembly. So far the only hiccups were: (1) wing tabs to the fuse. Both holes were off so I had to enlogated the holes to so they line up with the blind nuts, and (2) one of the four servos stuck solid. Upon opening of the case, I discovered one of the gear broke or the two pieces of a gear came apart. No big deal as I decided to use the 5065MGs for the ail and delegated the 2216MG to the elev and rudd.

... and dummie me, I forgot to add the motor mount when I purchased the HK Slick so now I'm waiting for it to come.

Chopper, for the wings, the covering where they insert is supposed to be cut off to create an elongated opening and the wing drops into the recess. I had the same issue at the start with the blind nut not lining up, after cutting the covering away the wings slot right in.

What motor mount are you referring to? Is it the cross mount for a NTM motor or something?

Oops! Yes ... I can feel the recess. Turnigy motor. Thanks.

Oh well, we will figure it out.
The shape of the arm has no bearing on the servo travel, only the position of the linkage hole in relation to the output shaft. Just imagine a straight line from the shaft to the hole, this is the length of the moment arm in relation to the amount of force the servo can exert on the linkage. At neutral the position of the linkage along with the connecting rod should make a right angle to the servo output shaft. I don't know if I'm explaining this very clearly, if I could draw you a picture you would see what I'm saying and would understand why the shape of the arm dosn't matter, only the position of the hole for the linkage in relation to the output shaft and horn on the control surface. Picture this, if you drew lines from the output shaft to the hole in the end of the servo arm, from the hole in the servo arm to the hole in the control horn, and then from the hole in the control horn back to the servo output shaft this shape should be a right triangle where the right angle is at the hole in the end of the servo arm.

I think HK really needs to add some quick release wing nuts. BTW, how is there a limit to how many planes can fit in an SUV?
