Kostas1, Please excuse me but your rudder linkage is wrong. For one the ball link should be on the servo end with a clevis on the rudder end. The way you have it will twist the horn under a load and break it after a while. Second thing you have the ball link parts in the wrong place. The only thing on the bottom should be the nut. The tappered brass piece should be on top of the hord with the small end up and the ball resting on top of it. Some guys run the ball on the horn like you have it. But I think they are asking for trouble.
The second will not run corectly and must be changed.

Good luck to you,David

Kostas1, Here is a picture of the H9 diagram. Did you understand that the ball link is also on the wrong end. It should be on the servo arm,not the control horn. I have put two extra pictures to show the correct set up.

Not only that, but the ball links are installed incorrectly. The brass tapered bushing needs to go between the ball link and the control horn or servo arm. That way the ball has something to pivot on. BTW, I runn 4-40 ball links on every end of linkage.

Here is my newest. The way this one flies is what makes it so great. I find myself leaving everything else at home and taking only the Fusion.

Here's my ARF(s)

First, Ultra R/C Giles and my Kadet Senior. It was a kit but I bought it used and it needed "some work" so it COULD be considered and ARF, right?
