I used the extended arm but am using the innermost holes on the rudder. If you are going to use the extended arms try and find the hole that is closest to the servo while still getting the desired throws.

I used the 3dhs arms on the rudder and elev, I put each connection in the middle hole. For the ailerons I just used the long arms that came with the hitec servo's and used the out most hole for that. Everything has been working well for me.

You may want to factor in the higher heat you have in TX. My times are based on 70 to 85 degree conditions here in Northern MA. I have found that it does make a difference.

Thanks, this is pretty much going to be flown at sunrise right before work. I am also thinking of adding a deflector like I had in my Extreme Fligh Extra for a little protection. One side only as the other has the ESC in the cooling path.

The Omega 103g should not be overheating with a 13x6.5, I flew that combo for over a year and a half in the Arizona heat. Even mostly full throttle flights.

And obviously if you are used to flying a plane with a certain power level and put a weaker motor on it you won't be able to fly it exactly the same. The 103g would be pretty anemic on a 12x6 prop.

Ok well I bought motrofly 2815-850 and I am going to use a 14x7 if the motor still gets hot I will have an excuse to buy a ice 50 then, if it is my something wrong with my x-55 can I send it in or am I stuck with it?

More help please

Arrrrg...

Every bolt required for bolting pushrod ends to control horns is missing from my 47" SHP kit. I got 3 front wheels instead of 2 but somehow the extra wheel isn't much help

I seem to have washers, nuts, pushrod, pushrod end with ball joint in it. Just not any bolts.

Does anyone have a clue as to what size they are? I just emailed Noll hoping he can help me but incase I don't get a reply I thought perhaps somone here might know.

As near as I can measure the hole in control horn and in the ball in the pushrod end meansures .075" ID.

That is bigger than 0-80 bolt but smaller than 2-56. Is it a 1-64 or is it metric?

I have swapped all my planes in this size range to ball end pushrods. I got several bags of M2 screws from Trimcraftaviationrc along with flat washers and M2 nuts. They work great in the ball links I have. Gino has $2.99 shipping in the US for any order and you will get your package in about 2 days.

I guess I should join in now, just took advantage of the summer sale and have a 47 SHP (red) on the way. Ordered yesterday and it was shipped out the same day, WOW, that's pretty good.

Going to outfit it as follows.

Motrolfly 2815-950
ZTW 60A ESC
CC BEC (for the 6V output)
HS-65MG's on the ailerons
Savox 0255's on the elevator and rudder.

All of the above equipment is on hand except one 0255 servo, so very little extra cost.

Will spin a 14X7 prop but might prop down to a 13X6.5.

Well a little after midnight but I am all set to maiden my 47"SHP tomorrow morning before work.

I ordered the blue to match my 87" SHP and I did some photoshop today to duplicate the great graphics that FlipRob did for me on my 87 to use on my 47. Tonight I cut the flames to go on the top of the cowl and tomorrow I will take some pictures. I ordered a scaled down version of that great worn flying American Flag on the tail to match as well. I can't wait till I fly both (maybe this weekend) to get a side by side.

My G10 oversize servo arms have not come in yet but to my surprise I got pretty close to the posted movements but will add the rudder and elevator to get some more throw.
