Default Error in T-Rex 450 Sport manual?

Hi,

I am a real newbie and am assembling my first heli, a T-Rex 450 Sport. I've been following the manual really carefully, nervously and uncertaintly, trying not to screw up. I am just putting on the linkage rods, and I think I have found an error in the manual. I think that the location shown for the bottom end of linkage rod (C) on page 6 is wrong. I think it should go to one of the 4 linkage balls on the inner inner set of swash-plate linkage balls.

Some expert please; am I right?

Thank you,

Ted

They should go there, yes, but I looked at the 450 Pro manual online (horizonhobby support) and it is shown correctly on page 6. I have the 450 Sport super combo with manual at home. I built from that manual, and it was fine.

Ted, you are absolutely correct, there is an error in the manual I just looked at on the Align website..

I have copied that part of the manual and have shown in RED where those arms are supposed to go..

The manual incorrectly shows them going to the ball on the swashplate that should be connected to the Servo..

The diagram on Page 7 in that manual shows the correct position of all linkages..

I just verified my 450 Sport manual, and yes, the same error is there. I didn't look carefully as I was building because it was not my first. Have a look at page 6 of the 450 Pro manual available here: http://www.horizonhobby.com/ProdInfo/Files/450PRO.pdf. I believe the picture has been corrected.
