Need Pic of Switchback Interior

I've got my elderly SB 3D recovered with Econokote and all new control surfaces installed with sewn figure 8 hinging. Interior was gutted. Now I need a picture showing where rudder and elevator servos were mounted and receiver was located. I've changed from geared inrunner and 8cell KNN 1050's to Esskay 400XT and 1100 3S Lipo so may have to add a little weight to the nose.

Help!

The servos are located at the rear of the canopy opening. You can access them easily with the canopy removed. RX location was up to you, no standard location. Does sound like you will have to add nose weight with that setup.

Here's one from the top and one from the bottom. The top one is shown with a Tanic 1500 3S pack as far back as it will go. I now use TP1320 packs and a Razor 400 in a GWS gearbox and still keep the battery as far back as possible. I don't think you'll need any nose weight.

Thanks guys, I forgot that servos were mounted upside down. It was tricky gluing yellow tubing inside middle of fuselage to guide the flexy wire pushrods. Getting there!
