I've never stripped one. They are good quality. If you use the right screw driver you will not strip them. Besides that both the bolt that goes through the servo horn as well as the screw that fixes the rod have the same diameter. Which is 1.8mm.
It will only rotate freely if used with thin horns. I fitted one last weekend but used it on a Pom system and it was too thick so the whole thing tightened up. I fixed it by filing away the surface untill there was enough freeplay to allow it to rotate. A tip, don't use a washer between the horn and the stopper or the nut and the stopperunless there's enough room for it all to move. Use Loctite on the nut and tighten really tight. I've useda tiny drop of Gorilla Glue when I was out of loctite an
No I was using them on the horn itself. I use the Z bend on the servo end and the linkage stopper on the horn. With the Pom Horns I did have to file a little down each side as they are really built to take punishment and have plenty of meat to hang on to. I've had enough of horns or servo arms snapping off on belly landers so I also use the skid pads to protect them.
I use a tapered reamer to enlarge arm hole so that threaded part passes through ... nut is then Loctite to correct depth to allow stopper to turn in relation to rod angle. No need to thin arm or play other. These are excellent to replace those impossible to find 1mm threaded clevis that models come with but cannot be replaced when broken.
No, you have 2 options to make them fit:
drill the holes on the servo arm with a 1.5 mm tip,
grind the linkage stopper bolt down so tha it fits in the original servo arm holes and then use shrink tube (or some other means) to prevent it from popping out of the hole.
Yes it will fit. The screw that holds your control rod will be able to screw tight all the way in and should work for any diameter of control rods less than 1.8mm in diameter. I'm currently using 1mm music wire and it is perfect.
Yes, these too. You will need to slightly enlarge the hole in the servo arm. Alternatively, these stoppers can be attached to your control horn enabling you to adjust from the control surface. A z-bend can be made to fit to the servo. Either way is fine. Adjustment is really precise with this stopper as well. It's a fraction lighter.
Can someone confirm the dimensions of this linkage stopper, as usual HK haven't bothered to put any useful information against the product. Need the Push Rod Diameter size (MAX) and the Servo Diameter size please.
These are great little accessories. You will find that the fitting is machined for a 1.8 mm max push rod diameter. As for your servo question, what are you asking? If you are concerned about your servo arm holes, don't be concerned. Just drill 'em out slightly oversize and you'll be fine. Don't forget threadlocker or CA.
the first one cost $0.17 1set the second one cost $2.39 10pcs
just search for OR016-00501 and It is the same product, how is that posible?
9 thumbs up!
There is a misinformation. D1.8mm refers to diameter of mount hole. You have to use servo arms which are D1.2mm or lower. It seems good but i have already bought servo arms which i can not use with...

These are the best thing for finely adjusting servo movements, no more z-bends on servo arms. Just make sure you do them up tight, and be careful if you are using lock-tite that you don't get any in the hole in the servo arm or you'll have a stuck system and a burnt out servo (trust me)!
