HelicopterMiniature Aircraft Whiplash & Fury 55 › Rotate servos in Extreme??

This question is asked on the grounds that someone has bound to have tried it....:-)

I am building my first Fury Extreme. General advice seems to be to run the cables through the centre of the frames. The topmost servo is shown in the manual as having the disk at the rear. Now the lead also exits the case at the same end. This puts the lead pointing directly at the starter shaft. My idea therefore was to rotate the 9252 servo 180 degrees, so the lead points forwards out of harms way.

The only downside that I can see is that the pushrod has to be longer. Or have I missed something obvious???

Useful comments appreciated.

Pete

The longer rod would be more flexy and is not needed.
I also run my servo in the stock position and use the ma flex starter,
running the lead under the servo.
One thing to watch out for is one of the servo mounting screws should
be trimmed of excess legnth where start shaft is or it may hit your
flex starter head.

your not missing anything. The stock position works just fine. I have not had any problems with chaffing at all

If your gonna Crash.. make it look Good

Thanks Gents for the response.

So,, I could be the first one to try this then. The difference in pushrod length is about 10mm. I have done the same to the TR servo. As that is a made-up assembly the solution was much easier.

If there is a downside to this, I will let you know.

another way

I put a dot of CA on the servo case and fix the wire in place.

Fuel tubing

I put fuel tubing on any areas of the frames where wires could rub. Dead easy, just cut tube to length then split lengthways. Seems to work pretty well

I've seen CA cause servo wires to become brittle and fail. Taping the wires to the servo case with electrical tape is better, IMHO.

blah

trevortraffic NOT what I wanted to hear!

Even a little tiny dot? That's all I used...I didn't run a thick line across the whole servo case, just a dot.

If it makes any difference I also use electrical tape to attatch the wires to the servos, and have never had an issue with it. Works great. And I to use fuel tubeing on the edges of the frames to eliminate any chance that something could chafe. Works for me.

Build it, fly it, crash it. Repeat as often as needed.
