anyone got any advice for a method of connecting a rudder tiller in a small space with little room to swing?

I would move the tiller 45 degrees and cut off the top section.

You would then have to rotate the servo or arm to match.

hope this helps

If the rudder post is near the stern wall, then you need an asymmetric tiller arm, and possibly fixing the servo along side the rudder post. If necessary you can use a miniature servo - they have plenty of power for a canal boat.

Look under Forum Rules - there are two topics on posting photos, one using Photobucket, one using the Forum mechanism.

rudder tiller help Dsc03010

ok photos! sorted out the rudder swing issue by modding a commercial rudder fitting to a similar appearance to the kit tiller(the cream one which is quite bulky and was in no way going to fit) swapping the larger screw with a grub screw and sanding a little bit off the inner wall,still need some help sorting out servo setup and location,this is only my second boat and is a touch more complex and less roomy than the 1/16 springer

Yes - tricky, especially as you probably need a big swing to get any steerage. Have you tried asking Bryan at MMM? He's very helpful and if anyone has built one he will probably know how it was done.
