That could be, but I'd follow what the manual says. There must be a reason. Oxy4max is pretty small ... maybe doesn't need much throw?

Is your Oxy4 Max set up the same way?

I just checked and no it isn't... The manual I used does not contain that verbiage you showed (they update their manual all the time). I used the included servo arm (OXY0085) and put the bolt in the hole it showed. It is like 9.33mm or so....


It looks like the inner hole is 7.50 and the outer is 10.


The manual I used (REV 12) does not have a section: "How to correctly set the tail limit".

I would have done exactly as they said in the manual. It should be noted I am using a mini sized tail servo, not a micro...

Caged, are you using an Oxy 4 manual rather than an Oxy 4 Max?

Either way, what fiddle posted is correct.

I used what was posted here:


Now that I look at it, the Oxy4 is mentioned. Shoot. Should I be 10mm Out?

I think that's for Oxy 4, not Oxy 4 Max. Yes, use 10 mm.

I say if it's working like you have it and no issues, leave as it is. No need to change it if it isn't causing problems.

jrman83: I am having some issues with the tail blowing out on hard collective punches. Gain is set correct

By all means put where the manual states to place on the servo horn if you're having issues and start there.

Not sure what you mean by gain is set correct. How did you set the gain?
