If I do a rotary servo conversion, do I need to buy or make a reversed elevator servo?

Do I need to install the 3-in-1 reversed?

Probably easier to ask you all than try and find out the hard way.

If I recall the only reversed servo is the left cyclic.

Thanks. Any idea about reversing the 3-in-1?

Should not have to alter the 3in1 position.

OK, this is going to make me sound maybe challenged, but are you positive that it is one of the aileron servos and not the elevator servo that has to be reversed?

The reason I ask is because it's not like the stock 130X has "left" and "right" aileron servos - they are both interchangeable.

And I hate calling them "elevator" and "aileron" servos, since helicopters don't have ailerons or elevators in the traditional sense, but that's not your fault.

Left cyclic is correct...must be a reversed servo

My rotary 130X has it that way

No changes to the 3n1

Thanks, Heliwhisperer and Jon.

I stand corrected - that's why the thread is titled "El Grande Mas Dummy".

Another question El Grande Mas Estupididio - will I need different servo links?

My rotary 130X has the recommended servos that come with the correct servo arms so you can use the stock servo links
