Thanks so if I use this linkage and hook up the servo horn part on the hole by the screw and not at the end will this work??? Thank you guys for all of your help. Here is a couple of photo's of my new toy I got for my birthday F9F Panther 70mm EDF with a 14.8 volt battery pack, But as I said this AM I was going to a fun fly and I did. Get a couple of flights in with another plane and bang my phone rings. My kid has got in a fight with her boyfriend and he takes her car keys and leaves her, Long story short I am at home now and I am really pissed But I will fix this throttle thing if it takes all day. Thanks Guys Eric

Sounds like some up close and personal time is in order for the boyfriend. My daughter had one that did things like that. It only took one "discussion" to end any of it happening again.

Eric,
Install the fiber arm that comes with the engine over the top of the metal one that is already there, be sure to get another4X40 bolt and and install it in the end of the existing arm where you have the Z bend in and get yourself one of these http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXFV40&P=0and install it in the end of the fiber arm. Use 4x40 all thread for your linkage and use one of these at the servo http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXD905&P=0.

Okay guys you know the extra thing that comes with the engine for the throttle??/ Do you just bolt that on or do you hone it out in the same as the metal one that was on there in the first place?? You know the stock one is not round oblong if that make any sense??? So do I just bolt it on there or cut it to match?? I am looking for some batteries for my camera to take photo's and I will get back to you??????

The center photo is fine. Drill a small hole where the old connection hole is and fix with a little screw and nut w/ some blue thread locker. Also add some blue loctite to the main screw.

EDIT: Wait before drilling plz. I always use the blue servo arms that come with Hitec servos and leave the standard lever in place. If the hole in the composite lever is round you need to put the original underneath it and drill a tiny hole in the composite one and lock it as described above.

Now before I cut the composite one is that right it shoule match the hole in the stock one? Or can it just be bolted to the throttle shaft with out any problems???? Sorry guys but this is my first gasser and I would like to get this right. What is the reason for putting on the compostie one anyway just because it is longer?

Eric take the screw out of the orginal throttle arm and lay the composit arm on top of the orginal arm and screw the screw back on holding both arms then dril a small hole through the composit arm matching the hole in the orginal arm and use a small bolt there. Then you will have a longer throttle arm using the hole on the composit for your servo to hook to.

There is another way... These are nice with a diameter designed to fit on the carb shaft. Has set screw and works great. Comes in 3/4 inch or 1 inch. Most like 3/4 for throttle and 1 for choke.

Bottom is the one but go back and do what FOOPED said. You need another hole in that composite arm. Then bolt it toshorter carb arm. Otherwise it will rotate on the throttle shaft.

PS: Came back toexplain in more detail. You will actually end up using both arms. You will use the short metal one that came with it and the composite one will be bolted on top of that metal one. They will share the same screw that goes into the throttle shaft (it may need to be a little longer. A 4-40works good in this hole). BUT you will need one more screw and nut (4-40) to go through the outer holein the metal one, and the new middle hole you drilled in the composite one. So you will have two sets of fasteners holding the composite arm onto the metal one. Then the third outer hole in the composite arm is what you will attach your linkage to.

I completely agree Giddy . I spent 2.5 hrs on this . Decided not to mess with carbon rod and just use all-thread . Does this look okay to all you vets. out there ??? It is in the closed position right now . I already set the end-limits but haven't messed with the expo yet .

McChiken,
Looks solid to me. Ball links are always the preferred method. No slop and no metal contact.

This is worth spending the time on trust me.

The only thing I'd change on yours is to move the servo side ball end one hole in towards the servo. Then you will need to increase your end points to give the better resolution that makes the throttle feel a lot smoother. On mine, if I use that blue hitec arm on both sides the servo side one is always one hole closer to the servo than the the throttle side. So if the throttle arm side is on the 4th hole, the servo arm side should be on the 3rd hole. This gives you good resolution. Try it, I bet you'll like it.

Man your looks great and does it works as well? You did a nice job. Can you guys tell me witch alum arm works on the carb linkage instead of the composite? What brand please and thanks.
