I have just mechanically hooked up the elevators to the center fuselage bellcrank which is connected to the trutrak servo. When moving the elevators there is a definite notch in the servo around the centered position, is this normal?
The servo is installed per the Trutrak drawings and is oriented correctly per the drawings.

What do you mean by "notch"?

I thought the autopilot servo had a center position that felt like a detent, I checked the aileron servo and it was free all around so I went throught the entire elevator linkage and found where the binding was occurring (center bellcrank lower fitting was disconnected and binding against the bottom of the fuselage), this will be fine when the controls are connected to the bellcrank.:o

I was going to say, my servo had the same feel from stop to stop.

Sounds like you got this all figured out. Our servos have no center point, so they should rotate freely all the way around.
