Default Tail servo output shaft...

... towards front, or towards back? Looking at people's 'rex pictures, I see some pointing front, some pointing back. Which is the "correct" or "proper" way? I'm using a 9650.

I don't think any one way is inherently better than the other. Personally I think the center of gravity (CG) is the determining factor. Point your tail servo in the direction that helps balance your aircrafts CG. Opinions may differ, this is only mine

Well, I guess whatever will work for you in achieving the right CG......sometimes moving the tail servo will get the balance point closer for you....but, I never had luck with a 9650....it was always tail heavy with it.....
