I just bought a Predator Gasser with G10 frames and wanted to put the tail servo up front. However the push pull set doesn't appear to work with the G10 frames. Am I missing something? Has anyone mounted it with the G10 frames? Where do you mount the servo at?

Does the G10 frame have the elevator servo slot on the left side frame like the CF frame? Not the best picture but shows what I'm talking about

The elevator is on the left side however, there is no where to install the rudder servo up front on the left side. Here are a few shots of the G10 frames to show you what I'm talking about:

First off there are no mounting holes on the left side to install the push pull elevator set that I bought. Secondly, if I place the carbon fiber elevator servo mount on the left to install the servo (drilling my own holes), then the mount sits too high for the canopy to fit.

That looks to be one of the older Predator frames. It the one that I have is the newer NX V2 frames. They are slightly different.

I don't think it makes a diffrence. If you got the kit with the cf plates you switch the elevator shaft on the right side and mount the plate for the elevator servo on it then you would have room for the tail servo.

I hope this works for you.

Well I can see that the G10 frame doesn't have the servo hole cut for the tail servo. Really confusing since they did cut a hole there, just made it an oval

I can't see an easy way to get around that without taking that frame member out and cutting a servo slot in it - or replacing it with the CF or Aluminum frame member that does have the servo hole.

If I were in your shoes I'd call Century up and press them for an answer on how to get the servo mounted up front.

That was my same line of thought as well. I figured the only way of getting the servo to fit would be to (as you mentioned) cut the oval to shape and then use a long servo arm on the tail servo. It's starting to look like I may have spent the money on the parts for nothing. At any rate I am going to contact Century and see what they say. I'll let you guys know what the say. But if anyone else has any idea on how to get it to work let me know.

you could try and make an adapter plate for the servo, would have to get a bit inventive with a flat sheet of aluminum. I could see mounting it forward, like above the radio tray and just use a longer CF rod to connect it to the bell crank.
