When mounting the tail servo in the frame do I put the horn shaft to the front of of heli(closest to the main shaft) or to the rear (closest to the tail)? I have it mounted where it is closest to the tail and can not get the control rod short enough to get the rod on the ball links. Thanks for the help in advance. Have a great day Rick.

The tail servo can either face frontwards or to the rear, whichever way makes the pushrod work. Ideally closer to the tail would be better with a shorter rod, but if it is already sized, then you can turn the servo around.

Just make sure of your tail direction which ever way you mount it.

The manual shows closest to the tail. Perhaps when Epoxying the control rod it spread apart? I normally have to tape the ends in place to prevent this due to trapped air forcing one side off as the second end is placed on.

I did tape the the ends to hold in place the are JB weld on so no changing it now. I seen in the manual that it looked like it went to the back so this is the way I put it in. does the hub center on the shaft at set up? Thanks for the replies.

The hub should be close to centered and the bellcrank should be at 90 degrees to the boom.

Sorry i didn't see this Rick. Yep as stated above the servo output goes to the rear. Are you using the metal rod ends that go over the carbon rod?
If so and it's too long i have some ends i can fix you up with. You could shorten the rod and re JB weld it on.

Odd i've never had one too long. Was it a pre cut rod from Synergy?

I got the rod from Amain hobbies using the part in the manual. Using an align tail servo. When I put it towards the tail it is about 1/4 inch too long. I have some ends for the 600 rod. Is there any way to get JB weld undone?

Man, I'm sorry to say, but I think you would have to destroy the rod to even think about trying to get JBW undone. I used to make tuned pipes and that is what I used instead of soldering or welding the components together. I never had one melt the JBW.

I would just rotate the servo over and see if the rod would be long enough (as long as the servo arm doesn't interfere with anything). The rod might be able to be adjusted out to where it would work. The servo won't care which way it is mounted and that little extra length shouldn't make any real difference in the rod's flex. You might have to switch the mounts for the servo if one has the relief for the servo wire, but that should be it.

I got the servo to face the right direction when I bought the new control rod they came in a two pack used the other and had some more ends. Thanks again everyone for the help and advice RR form users Rock.
