Review by: RichardPly mounting frame for a Ripmax SD150 servo
This servo wing mounting frame is very accurately CNC cut and well finished in 3mm ply so that the servo is an accurate and tight fit in the frame. The frame adds little weight to the installation and certainly does not add any thickness to the mounted servo. As provided, the servo can't be screwed directly to the frame, unless you adapt the plastic mounting lugs provided with the servo. However, I glued two small 5mm thick blocks of hardwood to the frames and screwed the servo into the blocks - which has worked well, without adding any additional thickness to a tight wing installation. Overall I was very happy with product and the very prompt delivery of the items.

Substantial and well-made frames which are an excellent fit on the servo, well packed and delivered quickly.
But in the event I didn't use them (my stupidity - nothing wrong with the product). Bought to install wing servos in a 2m glider which came with smaller U-shaped frames with a small hole each end. Instructions showed these used with plastic clips. Because there were no clips in the kit in the kit I ordered the frames from Hyperflight. In fact the clips come with the SD150 itself and used with the U-shaped frames in the kit allow installation in a tighter space.

These take the pain out of servo installation, making accurate secure placement simple.I fix them with Gorilla glue with the servo in place ,the servo wrapped in polyprop film to prevent it getting stuck.Small birch ply blocks are then fitted against the servo lugs. A thin strip of 1/32 ply then goes across the servo held by screws. Perhaps not the most elegant but its rock solid and in the event of servo death they can be easily replaced .
These frames also fit some Hitec servos with only a tiny bit of trimming.
The foaming action of the Gorilla glue fills any voids and spreads the loading to the wing. Simples.
