RE: TT TOC elevator servo mounting?

You need to use 1.5" to 2" arms. Please make sure you use high torque servos, the elevator has alot of area. I use SWB arms and tightening the lock screw is hard but it's a one time deal. Use the...

Here's the problem, they advertise 3D, they say it's amazing, they act like Quique uses one to practice with. I would think by now that Horizon knows what is 3D capable and other than typical setup...

How can Parkzone/Horizon possibly feel o.k. about telling everyone this is 3D capable? They need to recall these and try again. I for one am taking mine back for a refund and suggest everyone do the...

RE: Throttle Servo????which one.
