Machine Gun servo and linkage

Post by Ray Massa »

I am attempting to install the machine gun option pack, and just wondering how others have attached the wire linkage. The wire with the 90 degree bend as supplied in the kit, does not reach the servo arm nor does it align with it (the servo arm does not extend out enough in length). It would require two bends to reach it laterally and vertically. Is that what is supposed to happen? Maybe I am just missing something here.
Thanks.

Looks like the picture in the manual might be wrong and the servo fits through the hole rather being mounted behind it.

Adrian,

I just needed to reverse the servo mount position. Sometimes I just miss the obvious. But I originally wanted the servo wire to feed from the bottom, so that is why I mounted it the way I did.
