I just got my R50V2 and notice that the pushrod for the tailrotor does the snaky thing. I have gone to boom mounted servos and carbon fiber push rod on all my other helis. How well does the stock setup work with the 401/9253 combo?
Thanks,,,basmntdweller


Stupid people have no idea how stupid they are!!!

Same for me

Both boom mounted and stock mount work the same to me, but for boom mount, the servo will get lots of oil after flight.

Your choice. Spend the money relocating your servo or on fuel. Only fuel will improve your Raptors performance. They do look kind of cool on the boom so if that's important go for it.

Only real advantage I can see to mounting the servo on the boom is that u can tension the tail drive belt without disturbing, and having to reset the servo linkage. I have mine on the boom

Boom mounted here

Got mine on the boom and will agree that it only helps make belt tightening better cause you dont have to readjust the linkage
AND I think it looks better there

Mine is on the boom (50 V 1) for the reasons stated by Kaymo, also using GY 401/9253, gets a bit of oil (not a lot) on it but it doesn't seem to suffer.

servo

I have boom mounts on my R60's but decided to try it in the stock position on my R50 with the GY401's and there is no noticeable difference in control. The only annoying thing is the rattling sound from the rod.

Joseph, if you have a climate that varies as much as ours does (-30 in the winter, +30 in the summer) you will find yourself frequently re-adjusting the belt tension. With the servo in the stock position this means re-trimming the tail every time you do it. The boom mounted servo avoids this.

My R60's use a tube drive so I do not have to worry about temp changes. I just tried the stock location on my R50 because I did not order a boom mount yet. I had the temp change problem with my Venture belt drive so I know what you are talking about.

Yes, I have the same thing on my Ergo and recently changed that to a boom mount as well. In general, I would rather avoid them as I can't believe it does the servo any good to get covered in oil (despite it continuing to work) and I also feel it is easily damaged if (who am I kidding? WHEN) I crash. Those 9253s aren't cheap!!
