thanks in advance
If your TX has travel and end point adjustment tweaking capabilities, then a servo arm of around 18mm (center screw hole to clevis connection hole as it measures on my setup) should get you all the throw needed for Ailerons and Elevator. Otherwise you'll probably need to add another 4mm or 5mm.

Garbage; never again. Their build quality is just terrible. Zero QA in their environment. Have you ever built anything from General Hobby? Hope not because its terrible. PA is the same; just terrible...

Just noticed your new post complaining about how things dont fit etc.

i recall reading in the Manual that you would need to do a bit of sanding here and there to make things fit so i think blaming the build quality is not fair to be honest. i personally think the quality is really really good but each to their own hey, just think you should not make it personal on the bandit forum where loads of people love the model and your guaranteed to get some stick for posting rubbish

I did take my Bandit out flying yesterday and today. It's dialed in, balanced and trimmed. I only wish these companies would allow you to adjust the incidence. It pulls hard, towards the canopy, in a knife edge. I will try another PA aircraft in the future because of how well the responded to my previous posts.

instead of blaming globaly the product in a sentence, just tell what was wrong on your kit, and why should there be the possibility of modifiying the incidence....I have up to the day of today build three Bandits (one for me and two for friends) and all three were of outstanding quality and with the correct CG (very important on this plane) superb flying caracteristics...

LOL nothing happened it is still alive in one piece after probably 700 flights, but it belongs now to a friend here that is getting back into the hobby! I really flew that plane so HARD i'm surprised it is still in one piece!, it proves how strong the bandits are! I really can't wait to get my red one!!

Just started the build on my blue Bandit yesterday
I can't wait to get it in the air, if I have any questions I'll be sure to ask.

Learned a valuable build lesson while cutting the Bandit openings: Inattention to xacto blade location can quickly turn your "assembly fluid" into blood thinner. The cut is healing well though and I'll be on alieron installation soon.
