I have just finished a Vario Tiger which needed the tail switching over.
The model looks right but I am having trouble in setting the tail up so it
feels good and responsive.
Changing the linkage from the standard snake type to a push rod via a bell
crank and fitting a 5 kg servo to give it some power will I hope help.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
