    Just curious - are you using a first generation DX7? (not the DX7s, nor the new black DX7 that was just announced...)

    As far as I know, the 517 is NOT a retract servo. max travel would be about 60 degrees either side of center, normal travel (with your JR transmitter set to 100% throw) is probably around 45 degrees...

    Neat! It would be nice if there was another version for faster airplanes, though. I'll admit, I haven't flown any 1/2A for a long time, but it keeps tempting me. Picked up a Cox RR-1 a while back,...
