servo tail control rod hitting mid range needle
« on: June 30, 2017, 09:53:08 AM »
I just built an n5c install the ball on the servo horn in the proper hole binds on the mid range needle valve. I had to move the ball in one hold to correct this. Is this going to effect my tail hold?

Did you install the pivot ball on the upper side of the bellcrank?

Yes it is on the top. I was wondering if I could twist my carb enough to get clearance

Yes rotating the carb slightly is fine. I've had to do that as well.

May wanna double check that the tail servo horn is at 90 degrees and the ball is at the correct distance on the horn..
