Hello all,

I am in the process of assembling a PowerCat from MoBB. With the kit I received a pair of servo side mounting plates. My question is if I were to use these where the swash plate would be orientated offset from the other option, would I be able to compensate and get correct phasing by offsetting the washout base and guide pin holder corresponding? Am I way out of line here? I wish these things came with a manual. My tx is a 9XII.

Have spoken to another guy also that did not get these with his kit. Needed spacers to distance them from the frame were not included. As for the other option for mounting servos, I only recieved one roll axis lever???

My side frames seem to be a different design to yours. My servos are therefore mounted in a different configuration, this could be the reason that you have plates and I don't?

Here is a better photo of my side frame. Does it differ from yours?

Your servos can be mounted with the plates supplied. You will need the spacers.

Here in North America, I spec out the PowerCat to come with the bellcrank set-up.

Please PM me I will email you a 36 page assembly manual for the PowerCat

Servo side plates

These are the side plates which came with the HotCat from JetCat,I did not like them so used the servos in the PHT3 side frames with bellcranks
