Just a general thought on installing RC. It's one of the things I study very carefully at meetings. There are simply so many things one can do some other way. Also I find studying things IRL makes it simpler to notice and understand small aspects on things.
But browsing webpages can certainly give inspiration. Like I found pictures of a reverser servo install, where the servo was mounted in between the the frames, in the wrong end of the reversing rod, instead of in the cab, where one would normally operate a reverser. Everything moves as usual, just the servo acts on the reversing mechanism in an unexpected place.
I don't think I would ever have come up with that idea on my own.
I believe one member here uses chain and two sprocketwheels to connect the servo and throttle. Yet another interesting variation.
