Glad to hear it! I'm sure there are many others out there that dislike cable steering as much as I do.

I came up with a direct drive modification to the Pro-Links on my Reaction 54. I borrowed the idea from my Skymaster F-4 and several other applications that I've seen.

The servo mount on the right is for the F-4; the one on the left is the one I made by brazing a brass spacer to a piece of steel.


Here it is with the servo mounted


And mounted to the retract


Here it is in the Reaction


It's a little crude because it's handmade, but so far it's worked great. I assume that you're working on something similar. You could also offer the mount as an upgrade to existing Pro-Links. The above servo is a Hitec 225MG. I have also used Hitec 645MG on other applications.
