I am not flying 4s yet and not sure when I will be, but I really like the tail servo on the frame and thinking I don't want to move it. Especially since I gave the tail servo on my rex a nice blade spanking last week. I would hate to do that to a 80.00 servo.

Anyone having success with out moving to boom? I have some Outrage 4s 2200 packs.

i flew mine without moving to the boom till I crashed and twisted the stock linkage and instead of rebuying the stock on I went to the boom kit.

it flew just fine with the 2200s in the stock postion.

Curtis used to fly all his in stock position before they did the boom mod kit.

Carbon Copter,

I flew my Rave with the TR servo in the stock position using a 4S/-10 setup with Outrage 2200 4S LiPos. It was slightly nose heavy, but for me, there were not any issues in flying performance.

I later decided to slant the battery mount further vertical to help the CG a little. To do that, just remove the lower battery mount screws and tilt the battery mount more verticle and align the holes up with the next pair of holes in the side frames. Then slightly trim (dremel) the side frames that protrudes above the battery tray and you're done. There are about 4 or 5 sets of holes in the side frames to select from if you want to make the battery mount even more verticle for CG changes.

All that said, it flew just fine with no changes at all.... Give it a try, cause you can always change it later.

Keep up your rotor speed !

I have run on 4s since the beging and have many flights so yes it works very well. The battery tray is still sitting in the stock position. It may be slightly nose heavy but when flying it I really don't notice it. Recently I moved the servo to the boom just to see if it made any difference in the way it flew. To be honest I did not notice anything major.

Hi,
using -10/4S Outrage 230 gr stock tail servo mounting and it's a little bit nose heavy, but more like second pic of Boogie with tail boom fix.
I move ESC and bec at the rear of the frame, perhaps it helps a little. And I move the lipo as close as possible of the motor.

That's great everyone and is very helpful info. Thanks for the cool pics BOOGIE. I will play around. I have all my electronics including a bec as far rear as I could go. I did this intentionally before I heard of tail servo mount coming out. I am balanced perfectly on 3s, but I was looking yesterday and realized I have my gyro on the forward portion of the frame and will move it to the rear position with 4s packs. That might cut it. If it dont', I try moving position of battery tray.

I'm running the stock setup on the tail servo. Call me crazy but I'm using a spare front boom clamp about 4 inches back on the boom from the front. It seems to add just enough weight to make a small difference. I need less ele trim with this high tech mod. I'll probably opt for the new tail boom servo mount as a long term solution. I just don't really see a big problem in flight even without the added rearward weight. That's just me I guess. I'm waiting for Inkspot to steal this idea!
