I am upgrading the links on my 700 and I noticed that the Quick UK links are hitting the servo wheels, putting some pressure on the link itself. Is this normal? I noticed the balls for the aileron levers have a little more of a 'stand-off' on them, causing the link to be moved futher away. This is causing the link rod to have a little bit of an angle when connected to the servo wheel.

Link w/o contact:

Link hitting servo wheel. notice that the link rod starts to warp slightly:

Is this OK?

yes ball linjs hit, if you cut wheel side off where link hits problem solved. ive been cutting mine for long time. it will still fly without cut but how picky are you?

I would say NO if there is any extra pressure on the servo.

You can cut the wheel to an arm shape, this would be a cheap quick fix. If you don't want to cut the wheels find some other servo arms.

Cheers,

Thnaks guys. I didn't know if I had done something wrong, but it seems that cutting the wheel is the way to go.

Place washer(s) under the ball to get the ball spaced off the horn a little bit to clear the link over the wheel, provided you retain good geometry and don't have contact issues with the servo case. Looks like you have plenty of thread to work with so the washers should work.

Found the problem, just an fyi...

I over-tightend the balls on the servo wheels, recessing them into them wheel. I replaced the wheel and now it's fine. I have a habbit of wrenching things down so they don't come apart but sometimes this does more harm than good.

Take it easy Sal, you don't have to manhandle those screws,

I've had the QuickUK links/balls from the beginning on my LE and never had that problem, the links don't hit the Align wheels at all.

How's the 700 doing? Mine still flies like a dream, 5 tanks yesterday at KP and she was pulling stumps...lol

Check out my gallery to see what she looks like now. Maybe I'll come up to Coram one of these days and we'll fly.

Take care Panos

At the precipice, we change!
