I know this plane comes with a pull/pull setup, but can it be setup for a direct link on the rudder???

Yes. It's certainly a lot fresher. The 61" looks really attractive. The color scheme is really growing on me. I am not sure if the stabilizer is bigger on this plane or just shaped differently. Either way, it certainly looks right. Finances are a little bleak right now, but I will get a 330 one way or the other.

Unless you have a really heavy motor/battery set-up you probably wouldn't want to do this...

its nothing new but there is a lack rudder control when the 57 is stalled (hover or HA inverted harrier). i would assume the new 61 would improve on this aspect and you should have a well rounded plane. IMO, other then that the 57 is a awesome flying plane. my buddy had the same issue on his 103"er but not on the 72.

I have the Motrofly 4315 with a 6S 2700 and my battery is just an inch from the wingtube so it actually might be possible. I could slide my battery up 4-5 inches and still get a strap on it.

Funny, I experience the same thing, but with one exception, my 72 also lacks rudder in hovers - it can be problematic for me to get the tail back under after I lose the nose left or right.
