Final product is way better than I expected! The majority of the lens is clear when viewed from the side. the area near the tip glows and is very visible from the side!

So to everyone who has a hard time to find the servo horns for the aviation design servo plate and the hardware that they supplied with the jest I have custom made servo arms that will fit futaba savox and all the 25t type ones for $8 each, they one hole bigger than needed but they very easy to cut and form to the desired length






please contact me if you need some off those, thanks

Thats Awesome! Hard item to find!
Do you find any issues with running the servo output closer to the opening vs flipped around to be further away from the opening?
Obviously you can run a longer servo horn but mainly just wondering if there is any binding anywhere?

Actually this is what I always was doing and this is what instructions showed for this type of plate, if you do it the other way I find that the linkage will be limited and will stop at the servo, don’t center the arm just have it on 1:15 o’clock off center this will give you more movement

The Diamond was my favorite jet. Lost it at a show trying to get a higher mph pass than those little bandits, the elevator horns pulled out 15ft over the runway, total loss

Ouch! Did you glue in the horns into the surface or was there hard points added?
