Default Servo mounting

Hi guy's, I could use a few ideas on mounting servo's in the radio box if anyone can offer assistance that would be great. It's for an outrigger with a radio box 1" 3/8" wide by 7" 1/2" long, do you just glue blocks of wood across? is there additional bracing? If someone can share a pic or two of how they did it that would be helpful. Thanks,

CK out Joes mounts they are easy to install and easy to get at once mounted. I get my Dremal and wrought up the bottom of the mount.a file works good too. epoxy in to a unsealed radio box bottom. I take a exacto knife to the wood and get that scared up. I run the Hitex HT 225 mg for my .21 and .45 the Hitex 85 is used for the throttle and 3 rd channel.

Thanks advanced builder, appreciate the info on the mounts from Joe, I do have to order some stuff for another boat but kind of eager to get this one done up. The radio box is quite small as well so I'm inclined to do something simple such as the cross piece's you have for the Hitec servo. What type of wood are they and do you just epoxy them at the ends or add a frame around them?

Birch wood is the preferred . Hobby lobby or your LHS have what you need. Epoxy in .
Zippkits has Balsa angle stock used inside the radio box corners and flats ,Shoe goo or silicone all back hardware screws before you head to the water or that radio box will leak. The balsa is light but strong when used with CA and 30 min epoxy. A easy light helpful water seal out.
