I received one of the kits above that came with this new "linkage" but haven't been able to find any installation documentation for the bag of included Macgyver parts.

I found the wing installation section which was easy.

I post a over all review soon.

the ds75k can be mounted in the supplied servotray (same way like the d47)

in the past i tried d47 with stock springs on the tails but they where very slow to the side the spring pulls.
but i used the 3th hole on the d47 .
last builds i used the first hole on the d47 horn and increased my end point , haven't tried it on 1s but as others comment it should work well on 1s.

I only use the d47 at the first hole with 150% on the end point. This way it's strong enough. I also use 1S and it works just fine.

The ds75 looks good but costs 3 times more than a d47...

i like the ds75k's very much , if one would use pushrod driven tails i would certainly recommend those .

on pull-spring (which i always use) d47 are just perfect.

Will do Gary, That H piece has me scratching my head too. Maybe a battery strap of some sort???

Waiting for Oleg to send email. Hopefully soon. Looks like Gmail servers are down.

Krikkens,

What is the "H" shaped piece (white) with the hole in the middle used for? Can't figure out what to do with it.

Can't you just post the new instructions? If you mailed to Oleg, and he mails to us, it's not going to get in our hands very quickly

hi ,

manuals will be in post 1 in a few minutes...

the H piece you refer to must be the aileron servo tray , just like the old rectangled one but with more material removed en thus lighter.

Nice set of instructions. I'm a bit confused (nothing new) about Item 8 in the fuse build. It says:

8. Put a mark (line) inside the fuselage at 136mm from the nose tip , screw the M3x25mm bolt in the servo tray (screw it in all the way , the bolt will protect the threaded hole from glue) , glue it in with epoxy , the bolt hole on the 138mm mark , make sure it runs centered and the bolt stands up straight.

In one spot it refers to 136mm, the next it refers to 138mm. Should they both be the same? If so, which one?
