If you are using the same make of servo's Put the control arms on the servo's as pur the manual ..IE one on top and one on the bottom and it will work just fine...The elevater servo in the picture arm is pionting up to the top the right side the arm is pointing down... .JW

I used a servo reverser on mine, works well. Changes the travel on one servo.

The servo mounting holes on the .46 size do not line up like that . They show both horns on top of the ele and recommend the servo reversing y harness. Any ideas? Remember I'm working on the .46 size. By the way - I guess it doesn't make any difference since they are closing our flying field!

Hi,

There are two ways of doing this properly. If your Tx supports the function for dual elevator servos then use it. Otherwise you have to buy a servo reverser. Here's one:

Here's a cheaper one, but it does not have the centering adjustment that the first one has:

I already got the first one for my UCD 60

Oh, you could also get digital servos and use a servo programmer to reverse one of them

I have a UCD 46 and used two channels on the reciever, works great.

ok guys- I bought the y- harness with reverser. It moves the ele halves in the proper direction, but the travel is not the same amount on both sides. I've been unable to correct this with the adjustment on the reverser or by adjusting the clevis's. This is exactlygetting frustrating. I have a 6 chanel transmitter so I have no place to plug in an extra ele servo. I'm thinking that the reverser will only work if the pushrods are the same length. I notice that on the 60 size the ele servos are located exactly across from each other , but on the 46 size they are offset slightly causing the pushrods to be of slightly different lengths. Any suggestions?

A buddy of mine just used one Futaba servo and on Hitec servo as they spin in opposite directions.....then the pushrod can be from ths same side of both servos

i have s3010 futabas on the elevators of the 60 size, they both get perfectly centered and go up equally, but when it goes down, one goes down further than the other one

PS THEY ARE IN THE SAME servo and control horn holes
