Servo installation question:

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I am just installing the electronics into my 27% scale Extra 330L with a DA50 for power.

I know that you are suppose to keep the Rx and related equipment as far away as possible from the electronic ignition setup for the DA50. I was wondering about the throttle servo and where I should install it. I was hoping to get it in front of the fuel tank to avoid problems with the linkage running past the tank but then I would have this servo fairly close to the ignition module. Would this cause me a serious problem?

OR are there any suggestions as to how this should be done? Everything else can be kept to the rear and well back from the ignition setup!

Thanks in advance for your comments and suggestions!

Hello Gary as a to servo in the motor compartment was talking to A&H motors about the very same thing and he told me to keep all radio stuff at least 12" from the motor.Ask about the throttle one as well because they show it next to the motor in the manual and he said if I can keep every thing back from any motor stuff that what needs to be done.

I keep my stuff ALL at least 12" from anything connected to the ignition... including the ignition switch and battery.

I use Goldenrod and mount my throttle and choke servos aft... I've used the velcro around the fuel tank to help secure the goldenrod in teh past (rod sandwiched between the velcro holding the tank and second strap of velcro).

Works good, lasts a long time.
