You will need 2 large scale servos,
1 standard servo
2 large scale servo savers and
1 piece of 1/16'' piano wire 16 inches long.
I have modified the large scale
servo savers by adding a 1 1/2'' arm to them. I will give you more info on the servo savers later.
Prep the large scale servos as shown by
creating a notch so the wire lays flat on the servo mounting taps.
I cut and solder the two servos
leads together rather than using a Y harness.
Do as you prefer here.
Then cut and bend the servo mounting wire
as shown here.
The wire should be bend for a snug fit on
Here is how the wire will be used to
secure the servos to the Gondola.
Place a servo saver on the servo and hold
the servo on the fuel tank compartment
as shown and drill the holes for the 1/16'' mounting
Then add the wire to the servo and check
After painting the Gondola the servo
mounting wires will be secured with a 1/16" wheel collar.
Then mount the servo on the other side in
the same manner.
At this point you should have both servos
hanging on the Gondola.
Later, after the Gondola has been painted
you will mount the servos using the
wire you have just made along with double
sided foam tape.
More on this later. For now remove the
large scale servos and mount the throttle servo.
After removing the large scale servos,
mark around the engine mount and remove it from the firewall.
For easy drilling hold the throttle servo on the outside of the firewall as
Then drill the hole for the wire
Then place the mounting wire on the servo
and test fit it by putting it inside the fuel tank
Now remove the throttle servo and set it
