Can I set up my tail rod connection this way? I am doing this to a Caliber 30 that right now has the stupid z-bend rod. I bought a carbon fiber rod with titanium ends and two ball links but you cannot set it up with the servo connection at the top of the control horn (in line with gear box) because of the horizontal fin mount getting in the way. Would mounting it at the bottom of the control horn be okay? -Steve

why not

i dont see any reason it wouldnt work other than needing to reverse the servo , but wait and see what someone with more experince has to say heliman 100

depending on how badly it interferes,
I might grind the bracket a little or
maybe use a standoff on the ball on the
tail lever. I'd be pretty un-keen on your
suggestion.

It looks like you would have a hard time getting the pushrod 90 deg at the servo not to mention the odd angle into the t/r . I am not familiar with the caliber, but I would definitely look at another option. just my $.02

also my drawing is wayyyyyyyy off scale. In reality the position of the pushrod attaching to the servo horn is moving abou 3/4" down. The angle into the tail rotor arm changes slightly. -Steve
