Question My 470 kit is missing the tail servo mount

I got my kit from amainhobbies. I'm missing the tail servo mount. This is not the standard mount it is meant to accommodate the micro tail servo. It has little tabs on it. I can't seem to find this part. I can only find the mini size mount. I don't know if it would do any good to complain to amain if they don't carry the part. I might just use an mks 9780 I have its 19 grams more.

There is only one tail servo mount and unless it has been cut up it takes a micro servo.

You can see the tabs in the picture to accommodate a micro and the extra holes for a mini. If the tabs for the micro are not there then someone has been at your kit.

As the plastic part is all in one, once the tabs are removed you will need a new tail servo mount.

My picture shows the only part available. If your kit has got one but with the tabs missing then that has been modified by someone.

There isn't two parts available or some new part.

The standard mount is meant for a micro servo as that is what Align supply in the combo kit. Have you made a typo and you didn't mean what you have written?

Are you looking at parts lists for a 470 or a 450? Post a picture of what you have and a part number for what you have found.

I have no mount included in my kit at all. I'm going to snag one off my 450 pro

I thought all 450 mounts were meant for mini size servos I know the 470 uses a micro. I have a CF upgrade that converts the mini mount to hold a micro.

Got there in the end. lol.

Perhaps too late now, if you are busting a gut to get flying, but why not just call the supplier and get them to put the part in the post pronto?

I can't seem to find this exact part on their site. I'm at work now but I don't think the tail mount has a part number in the manual

I have just looked on Align's website and they do not show it as a spare part. Your supplier is going to have to rob a kit for you.

I would contact amain and also maybe message Align about the issue on their facebook page. They are usually quick to respond (taiwan time)

That's odd, I can't even seem to find one for the 450l as I'm guessing they are probably the same part. The 450 pro sell with the anti rotation guide but I can't seem to find anything after that. Let us know what you find out!

I thought the 450L tail servo mount was for a mini servo. I had a 450l and I loved it!

Red face Universal Tail Servo Mount Almost

470L tail servo mount is a improved design w tabs built in for micro servos

450 Pro, 450L, and 470L tail servo mounts are interchangeable but using micro servo you need a extra mount.

Tarot 450 Pro/Pro V2 DFC Carbon Fiber Tail Rotor Servo Mount (TL2607) $1.90

When I got my 470LP kit I just pulled one of my 450L tail servo's w mount and installed it on my 470LP but I use a std little larger tail servo.

I think they are but I don't think they are all tabbed for a micro servo. I could be mistaken.

The 450L came with a mini servo not a micro so I don't think it is identical.

Might be a good excuse to slap in a ds535 instead?

I've been struggling with the same problem. Got my 470LM kit from Aligntrexstore. Missing tail servo mount. A lot of futzing around, checked the Align.com.tw parts finder (http://shop.align.com.tw/partfinder.php?language=en). It says that it is the same part as the 450. However, I discovered that the replaced part they provide does not have the tabs for the 470 servo. I contacted Enterprise Hobby tech support and am waiting to hear back. The tech there was surprised about the part and said he'd get back to me in the next couple of days. Any suggestions for a good replacement servo if that doesn't work out?

If you are still looking for the tail servo mount- Enterprise Hobby just sent me a replacement. They had to get them from Taiwan. Contact EH tech support.
