Default 36% KATANA PULL-PULL EXITS

Mark,

Can you tell me the measurements for the center of the rudder pull-pull exit holes in the 36% Katana fuselage?

Some time ago, Rocco gave me the following measurements: from the back of the fuse, the slot center is 10.5" and the slot center up from the fuse bottom is 3.75". The problem is, if I make the hole up 3.75" from the bottom, the straight line back to the rudder will take the cables above the rudder hard points.

Thanks for your help!

Ok just went to the basement to measure mine the exit is 10.5 and 3.25 this should locate the horn on the hard piont. Let me know if it still won't line up.

Thanks Mark. I really appreciate your help!

Are the measurements you gave to the center of the slot?

Thanks!

Yes they are towards the center and you can also move it down a little if you need to in order to get it just right.

Mainly it is to help balance the plane. Some will mount the rudder servo(s) in the tail if they can get it to balance. Either way works and really dosen't have anything to do with 3D.

Thanks again Mark!

I have been worried about cutting the slot in the fuselage because I don't know if I'll be able to get the cable to come out the center of the hole without rubbing the top or bottom.
