Broken steering bracket Eflite 10-15 retracts

I installed the Eflite 10-15 size retracts in a fellow flyers new Red White Habu. After just two flights, one retracted stopped working completely and when examining the nose wheel I saw that the rectangular bracket that the steering arm rides in was broken. Did I install it wrong? Any thoughts would be appreciated.

NWS Clevis

When I installed mine per the manual, there was considerable binding when the nosewheel was retracted. It actually made the steering servo rock in its pocket. So I looked at it again and decided that either I mis-interpreted the directions or the directions were wrong. I turned it 180 degrees and re-attached it and it worked a lot smoother. As others on the Habu forum suggested, I also separated the NWS servo from the rudder servo and used a separate receiver channel. It's now on a mix and only functions when the gear are down. I suggest doing this if you have any un-used channels on your receiver.

Hope this helps,

Dave

Nws servo

Just to make sure I understand. You removed the nws servo and rotated it 180 degrees so the arm is now towards the tail rather then towards the nose?
