Technics Mount for RC type Servo Motors

I have tried a number of methods of mounting Radio Control type Servo Motors to Lego Technics models over the years. Non were overly successful, mostly due to alignment issues. Then in the wee hours this morning, whilst trying to sleep, the answer hits me. Out of bed I jumped (tip-toed), because finally there was a solution, thanks to Lego’s new new Part #64179: Gray Technic, Lift-arm with 5 x 7 Open Centre. 55gram RC Servo Motors fit tightly inside these new frames, accepting the Servo output shaft doesn’t align with the mounting holes in the 5 x 7Liftarm Frame. But this is a relatively easy fix that takes about 10 minutes, plus a day for the glue to reach full strength.
