Default Flipping Bellcrank 22 4.0 Questions

I see this mentioned on a few setups, but can't find an explanation of what it does. Also I can't work out which bit it is

Can anyone advise?

I am still a bit confused about this, although that last night shows what to do I still don’t understand the benefit of flipping the links. Can anyone advise what it does?

It raises the height of the steering ball stud so that there is less bump steer

When flipping the bellcranks, apart from a small amount of filing and removing a small shim from behind the servo to the servo mounts to gain a bit of clearance to the drag link is there anything else you need to adjust?

For some reason I seem to have lost a significant amount of steering lock when turning right which I am unable to correct through the transmitter.

Nothing is fouling the linkages, and before doing the modification everything was fine with minimal adjustment made on the transmitter to achieve even lock.

I can't see how flipping the bellcranks would have a negative affect on RH lock, but I have had problems with gaining enough RH in the past with the bellcranks the correct way up. I found repositioning the servo horn and lengthening the steering link, then readjusting the trim on my radio allowed a lot more steering throw. This may solve the issues your having.
