 Post subject: Argon Frame for Honey Bee King 2 - some questions

Hello, I am just assembling the Argon Frame to replace the HB King 2 original frame (which is very sensitive to crashes).
Some remarks and questions:
1- The size to fit the servos is very tight, for slightly larger servos (12 mm thick) I had to grind several edges to make them fit - and this size is very common.
2- For the front servo it seems the only way to get its arm in the center under the swashplate arm is to have the servo stick out to one side with its back - looks ugly and de-centers the COG. What is the idea how to mount this servo?
3- How are the two rear servos meant to be fixed to the frame? The thin fibre material will not give sufficient hold to a screw.
4- What is the idea where to mount the gyro?

It might be helpful also to see a picture with an Argon frame completely installed & ready to fly.
Thanks for hints!

1. Yes, it is fine for E-sky servos. But for bigger servos, the fiber board need to be sand a bit.
2. The tail have horizontal force and torque. Torque is countered but the horizontal force is not. You need to have the CG on one side to balance it.

4. I have my GY401 below the tail boom mount.

Thanks - this clarifies my questions.
Positioning the rear servo pointing outside seems to be standard also with 450 models.
