I just got my 7HV V2. I have it put together and completley set up and ready to fly. BUT!!!! upon inspection of servo travel I noticed the elevator servo horn, the ball link nut that goes on the back side off the ball linkage is hitting the metal frame when it goes down. the blall link is facing inward toward the servo so the bolt goes on the out side when it goes downward it hit the frame. its about 1mm off but my linkage rod is perfectly 90% so if i move it out that 1mm it will put a slant on the linkage rod. would it be ok to take the bolt off. i would like some ideas has anyone else had this problem.

I ended up filing down the end of the bolt and the nut until it cleared. A Dremel makes the job quick and easy. If you don't mind it being just a very tiny bit off center, you could change the spacing of the servo in the frame.

I don't want it to be off center I have it leveled and set up all ready. I think I will do what u did file the bolt and nut till it clears. I just wanted to be sure I didn't install the servo wrong. Thx for the reply

The thickness of the servo arm would have an impact on whether the bolt and nut hit the cyclic servo cage, or at least affect how much you'd have to file off. I use the Dubro heavy duty arms, which are quite thick.

Well, the Dubro heavy duty plastic arms survived a crash that stripped the metal gears in one servo, so they're plenty strong.
