Any chance you servo is faster than the spring return of the carb? It might cause a problem. I am a throttle pumper. I just wondering what would happen if your pulling the throttle open and reverse it repeatedly. Will the cable slacken and then jerk? Just thinking out load.
Nope, it's been set up. Works perfect, or at least as fast as I can pump it!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

John... I've seen a number of set ups now on RCU and FG using this method. As a test, I tried on my 190 to retract quickly and couldn't develop any slack... The spring is instantaneous. I'm thinking of going this route also using the servo mount we discussed.

I don't doubt it. Must have a strong spring on the carb, with a fast return.
I just looking at it from the prospective of some the C$&@t i am flying now. I not sure the carb springs would return in about 0.1sec, this being the speed of most of my servos these days.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Not that my "springless" C&^%$t has been issue free. Ill be maidening a pair of ZDZ112s if spring ever comes. Who knows, maybe ill have some kind of religious awakening associated with these new engines that makes me want to by a big sledge hammer.* LOL!
