I am installing the servos and need to know wether to use the very small nut that goes on the back of the servo arm or do I just use the small machine screw to install the link ball?

And do I use blue loctite or CA to lock the nut down.

Thanks
Dwight

yes, and yes

use the nut to secure the ball on the horn and use loctite too

+ do not overscrew the ball and do not enlarge too much the horn hole.

Tighten it up in order to closely plate the ball on the horn-good enough. That is so you take advantage of having screwed the ball to the horn, another reason for it not to be torn out..

Don`t even consider to use a anything else but the nut! Lock it all up with some loctite to ensure that it don`t fall off in flight!
Happy flying!

I usually take a sharp knife and bevel JUST the leading edge of the hole in the servo arm. Then I screw the ball on and snug it down as mentioned above. The screw will cut some threads of its own into the arm. Install the nut and snug it down. Here is an option that has not been mentioned. I use thin CA and put a drop on the nut and screw. If you need to get the nut off later it will come off but won't vibrate loose in flight. Locktite is great as well.

I use a 2mm tap to tap threads in the servo arms.

I'm not as flash as Al ,
I use a long 2mm screw with the head chopped off in my cordless to threads the servo arm first, works really well so you dont need to bleed during assy.
I use 222 loctite on the nut, comes apart easily and sofar no uncalled for dissasembly.
