Thanks to everyone for the additional useful information.

Thanks to you too Ron for your reply. As I said I'm just surprised by the wide difference between a 2S and 3S lipo. Perhaps I should stop worrying about it and use what works?! - in this case I think...

Thanks for your reply. The motor is a Hobbyking AX-1806N 2100KV, apparently good for 80W and it's a 10A ESC. I tried a few 2S 850mah lipos, some just a few months old. I'm just surprised by the wide...

Hi Joe -

I flew the Cub the other day and I'm pleased to say it behaved itself and all is well.

Hi -

Thanks but don't worry - the servo perhaps doesn't exactly centre but is near enough to allow maximum movement in both directions. I think the problem was more related to trim, subtrim and...

Hi Joe -

You wouldn't say awesome if you saw the front end which I deliberately omitted - it's a bit snub-nosed from various calamities! It was the first plane I bought 7 years ago on some impulse...

Hi Joe/ Ron -

I'm inclined to think the Cub is more or less back to stock set-up. Yes, it is onboard servos. They more or less centre - certainly there's room for maximum movement in both...

Hi Joe -

Thanks for that. No - when the trim is centred the servo is not centred. But I think you're right about the pushrod (and the thin plastic horn may also be fatigued) - the hinge itself...

Linear servos:

Hi - is it possible to adjust linear servos (in a Parkzone micro Cub)? - I've got much more throw in one direction than the other.

Any advice will be appreciated.

Thanks again.
I'm sure the castration is better for this kind of operation. So far, I've been using it for much lighter duties and it's very handy that it can be used at an angle.
