A thin washer works wonders

Shouldn't need a long arm at 25 degree, you could run the large 85mg arm and EPA to 150%

You don't need 1/8"....1/16" is is more than sufficient. I only have about 1/32" on the right side of my 71" Slick ( a little more on the left)

Ya, I never even flew mine. I bought it a few years back before I knew about 3dhs and I got irritated with PA so I never assembled it. Well this year I finally sold it for $300 RTR to a local guy and am putting the money tword a 3dhs 57'' extra.

nice new touch from 3dhs, the ball links at the rudder now come with a metric bolt and nylock nut, so no need for CA, nice small improvement

I must be out of my mind!!! Love the AMR, better than the ZG Pitts. Getting one of these shortly for sure though. Using your son's Hacker in it from the ZG.

Evidently you have never had to deal with P.A. or you would feel the same way I do....but then, to each his/her own.....

I used a smaller than shown arm, and then used the 2nd hole out, or 3rd one in. My endpoints are at about 120 to get the 25 degrees of travel specified.

thanks Ryan, I'm starting with the stock hi-tec arm at the outer hole, will let everyone know if I can get 25 once I get my RX and this all set up on my radio, not going to have time to even look at this again until monday evening,

Get some videos over the weekend guys

Ryan, you're at 120% so you have more you could use? (since I'm using an Aurora, so I don't know if the percentages are compatible between radios) I may size it up with the stock arms to see if it works without the Dubros (that should be arriving today).

yes, I could get probably another 5-10 degrees of throw each way (150% is the max, though the servos usually reach their limit before I get to 150). I didn't use the stock arm though since it looked so flimsy. I'll take a couple shots of my arm tonight and see how far apart the holes are that I'm using too.

I think each brand is different when it comes to percentages.
