Tail servo horn ?
« on: December 10, 2017, 08:52:50 PM »
Hi,
I'm using a MKS HBL669 tail servo and I can not get the ball link to align with the center of the tail boom.
I am using the horn that came with the servo and the adapters supplied with the kit.
With that combination the ball link is 5mm off center.
Without the adapters it lines up but that would require drilling holes in the frame, or I could buy a different servo. Either option isn't very appealing to me. So I'm hoping someone could possibly suggest another, such as the right servo horn.
Thanks,

Just use a standard 4 point star on the second hole from the end.  Good to go.

With a Futaba tail servo (BLS276SV) and a Dubro servo arm (part # 673) the ball link is perfectly centered.
