Or anyone els that can answer this ?. How do you fasten the hatch covers down on your outriggers? Pictures would be helpful if anyone has some.

Thanks,

Screws, servo horn tips, and a tab on the front of the hatch.

Get radio box tape, don't use any old tape. get this: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXMHP3&P=7 1 roll will last a long long time. anything else will give you problems.

for the engine bay hatch, like g1 said a tab in the front and either tape or the horns, i just use tape myself.

Fasten the servo horn tips with small screws.

See the tab epoxied to the front of the hatch?

Last pic shows the way we do it with large gas boats, the O-Ring & Hook method.

I've seen the servo horn trick used before with the screw going through the center of the horn with the arm cut off to size. Your way seems to work well also as some of us cut off the excess and you can get 4 of them of one set of servo arms. Me, I just use radio box tape.
