Default Trex SE Tail Servo Linkage

I'm in process of completing my rex but was curious about the servo rod on the tail. Is a Z bend required or can i make a rod using ball links on both the tail and the horn?

Kind Regards

I think anyone would be silly not to make their own ball link setup for the tail servo.

I did it on both of my Helis. Align gives you enough parts to do it, and it's a much better setup than the standard z bend.

I cut off the little plastic clips that are supposed to support your tail push-rod too......it puts too much of a bind on the rod in my opinion. Off with it's head! :-)

I agree. I had first tried using the Z bend and then switched to the ball-link. I got much better responsiveness out of the servo.

With the 9560 servo the "Z" link works perfectly. However, adding a ball link is easy enough.
