There were 2 sets of radius links sent with the kit, 1205 and 1205R . Which links are to be used.

Thanks, Robert

From the manual...


1205 (2) Radius Link

Fit (1) radius link to the back end of each washout-mixing arm. Using the “Left Handed” link the bend in the radius link goes in the direction of the short ball when the arm is laid on the side.

The R is a right-handed link. Someone else will chime in exactly why you should use the normal one, but I'm pretty sure it has to do with the phasing of the head.

My Left and Right handed links appear to be EXACTLY the same. Either there is some extremely minute difference or mine are the same and packaged or labeled wrong. BTW, MY manual identifies these as part # 1201 not 1205. I can't remember what mine were labeled as I tossed the packaging. I just used both the Left or both Right, can't remember which ones.

They are the same other than the direction they're designed to snap on.

All of the links on these things are designed to go one one way. You can get them on backwards but it's a lot more difficult. They just cut them opposite so that you can put either one on and have the properly cut hole either way.

So why were there 4 links in my kit? The manual does a poor job in the way of explanation regarding these links.

This page from the Tazer 800 build helps explain it a little better, http://www.helifreak.com/showthread.php?t=60211&page=4 .

Thank You All
Chris, I figured it was some kind of revision that had to do with timing.
