Default RE: Kangaroo-NitroPlanes-Assembly

HOUSTON WE HAVE A PROBLEM

I cut the covering over the elevator servo pocket, which will now be the rudder servo pocket.
First I hade to trim some wing sheeting back to fit the micro servo ( Hitec HS-81).
Next the gusset supporting the servo mount had to be notched to clear the servo lead.
see photos red lines & arrows.

OH SNOT...

The intened rudder linkage won't work! It will hit the elevator and then would need a 90 degree bend!
I could cut an angle off the elevator and make a J hook linkage like on a four stroke throttle set up, NOT!

SOLUTION:

Mount the servo on the top of the wing outside of the fin panel.
Requires carefull cutting and proper support under the wing skin.
