Thanks for getting back to me. I watched your flying videos on YouTube and it sure seems to work nicely. I am currently just building my 701 and thinking about all the equipment I want to install.
I decoupled the elevator and the flaperons on the torque bar which means that the elevator bellcrank stays vertical at all times. So I think the install of servos for the elevator and the flaperons behind the seat would be not be very difficult. So I was interested in seeing your install of the servos.
Thanks again, Moritz

It works perfectly. I have a couple YouTube videos about it if you can find them. I’ll see if I can find some pictures of the servo install.

How did it all work out? 

Do you have pictures of the finished install?
