Default Trex 500 canopy mounts

I recently ordered some Trex 500 canopy mounts to make putting on the Blade's canopy a lot easier. What I was wondering was how people have attached them? If I use the threaded rods that come with the mounts, the mounts bind with my servo arm. My servos are HS65MGs and I have the ball link in the 2nd hole out from the centre with the arm trimmed down. Thanks.

I have the same servos. I use these mounts. Take out the screws in your anti rotation bracket and thread the 500 mounts in. Then just line up your canopy to see where to make the holes. Add grommets and your done.

Edit: also I use 450 canopy. I don't use stock blade one. Idk if it will work, I have never tried. And I also don't know if blade grommets work with the 500 mounts. I use 450 annd 500 grommets.
