Anyone know the biggest dimensions that can be used for a throttle servo when using the tail servo kit? I would like to stay away from micro servos like the Futaba 3155. I found a Inolabs mini that is 23mm x 11.4mm x 24.1. The dimensions on a Futaba 3156 are 21.8x11x28.7 so I think the Inolab servo will fit but need verification.

You can always just do it how it was done on my Knight. I did not do it, but I will do it again if I get another Knight. Just dremel out the switch hole in the frame big enough to accept the servo of your choice. I do not have my heli here to take a picture though, sorry.

The Compass Mini-servo adapter that comes with their tail conversion kit has an inside measurement of 30.1mm x 14.3mm

It has a mounting screw hole spacing of @ 35.2mm

I don't use it, though. a big "+1" on the Dremel'd frame.

I don't even dremel the frame....just mount the throttle servo under the radio tray with servo tape, and then mount the rudder servo in it's place. How simple can it get. I've got two of them flying like that for months now with no issues at all.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

Anyone know the length of the front pushrod and rear pushrod? I assume Compass is still using that cheesy connector for the rear pushrod and I would like to use a one piece pushrod instead.
