Default rudder adjust

tail rudder will not travel through full range. I changed out a bad servo. B4 I connect the battery i can manually adjust through a full range of travel. I've loosened the servo arm b4 connecting. I'm at a loss. Any suggestions?

did you replace the servo with a walkera servo or a different brand of servo? also check to make sure the wk---adj switch on the rx is set to the wk side and not the adj...

It is the stock servo. I have the servo adjusted now. Looks like I have more than one problem. I broke the c clip on the tail rotor shaft. Hoping to pick up a new tail rotor shaft tomorrow. Thanks for the help.

In a pinch you could twist a fine wire around the slot where the c-clip resides. I have done it with the wire from a bread bag twist tie with the plastic coating removed.
Wrap it around once, twist it tight and trim.

Got the replacement parts yesterday. Installed & all is good again. Turns out the orange spacer on the tail rotor wasn't quite long enough. Adjusted that and a new c clip on the tail rotor shaft and getting full travel left and right on the tail. Looks like the tiny bit of slop allowing the tail rotor shaft to slide in the housing was causing all my problems. Thanks for the help.
