Light & Strong Servo Mounting
Author: Clay Ramskill

Light and Strong Servo Mounting

The servo trays that come with the radios require a 6 point mounting, they NEVER fit right in your plane, and they allow the servos to flop around too much under stress. A lot of kits include hardwood servo rails - these are heavy, require reinforcement on the typical fuselage side, and are a pain to get to fit right.

Try making your own mount, of lite ply - it becomes a strengthening part of your plane, is very light yet rigid, and you can set up your servos in the configuration you desire for the particular installation. Glue in a couple of light scrap balsa rails to the sides of the fuselage, for guidance and to increase gluing area. Cut the lite ply to fit the sides of the fuselage snugly, and cut appropriate holes for the servos. Add an extra small piece of lite ply underneath where the servo mounting screws will go, and you're set.
