Which rails are you referring to? If you mean the rear servo mounts, then the thin end goes to the front. I have several photos of it if you need them.

Hi Motions the rails sandwiched between the mechanics and the airframe they are the mounts for your mechanics.i think the thick side goes to the rear and the thin un front kinda a leveling device.

Ohhh. I don't have those on the 30 size. I guess the 50 is different. I had to make my own mount for the mechanics.

Have you tried reading the instructions? LOL!!!
You can't really call them instructions can you.

Thin forward for a rap 50 in the 222/airwolf 50 size fuse.

Skiddy doesn not use the rails, just a plate in the back.

What mechanics are you using?

I did not have to dremel anything for clearance on the rap 50 mechanics.

As far as I know, a matchbox will do nothing for retract servos other than reversing them.

I used a "Y" harness and a reversing "Y" harness for the one rear retract.


The different lengths of the servo horns (front gear to back gear) will give you the correct scale timing of the retracts.

dude you are a genuiess did I spell that correctly. I just ordered a reverse harness from tower. ok so all i have to do is use the y harness and a reversing y harness. Man dude thanks a lot. I wont need the match box after all. Oh well maybe i can use it on a later application. I been in your gallery and used the same servos from expert they work good thanks to you. I dont even know why i bought the match box. anyway how is your benzine doing? got one but not started yet until i get this 222 going thanks again rene.
