I agree with KM on the ganging...

I am using 2" on my air brake, sorry I mean elevator.

Be advised, the 2" arms come very close to the rear screw that holds the stabs on. I actually used the "single side" ball joint end to provide additional clearance to the head of the bolt as it is gets very close. The geometry is very much in line and I did not see any binding at the end points.

max out your endpoints, 1.5 will work... I get 50 degrees throw on elevator with 1.5" arms





2" can get you some more wild throws, but for what it's worth, 1.5" arms on all servos...

I'd like to try this also, (one rudder servo each side) but I only have 1 pushrod long enough(approx 5") that came with the kit. Where did you purchase a second pushrod? I looked on the 3DHS site and was unable to find anything.

Thanks

I do need to rework my throttle linkage a little, it hovers at a click or 2 over idle. That will be a Winter project.
just a 3 minute project if you fix it with throttle curve....and infinitely adjustable....

Do you have a 120 in your 103"

I was wondering if DA 120 plugs will hit cowl?

they miss the cowl... 104 is designed with the 120 dimensions in mind.

sorry, I didnt read the 103 right...

there is some rubbing... I need to add a thin ply or carbon rub plate and a zip tie around the plug connector. but while it has manage to rub through the high spot on the heat shrink it's not so bad as to be a massive concern to me
