I wasn't going to post again today, but I just wasted a whole bunch of time setting the servo wheel for elevator at a perfect 90deg, and then connecting those incredibly hard to get at links in there.

As I'm sure you've guessed, it's all wrong!

I need to set it up with an offset like on page 90 in the manual. What the heck!!!

But how on God's green earth do you set this wheel at such a strange angle inside that crowded area like that????

Any hints would be most gratefully welcome!!!

Very cool!

Thank you very much. I thought Brian only had videos for the Total-G.

I'll have to look again to find this series of videos.

Thanks again.

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

Anyone have a link to these vids.

My ENV should be arriving by the end of this week and I'd like to start watching the vids.

Thanks.

Paul.

OK, this worked for me, and so maybe anyone building a Rave ENV can use this info.

This is for the ELEV servo horn only...

I set my servo horn up exactly 90 degrees by mistake. I made the incorrect assumption that the links going to the bell crank were perfectly horizontal (or said another way - perfectly 90 degrees to the Main Shaft).

I set the horn up 90 degrees (to check it, I use an old flybar from a 600 held perfectly level through the middle of the horn, and make sure it bisects through the holes that are 90 degrees to the holes with the ball link balls in them)

Of course, this was incorrect. Argggghhhhhh!

But before starting completely over, I tried removing the horn from the shaft, turning it counterclockwise one spline, and reinstalling it. I then checked, and the two balls were now exactly 90 degrees to the bell crank for the elevator!

So I was done!
