    Not that it is a good idea, but in the interest of exhausting all possible solutions for a given problem:

    To increase the tilt range of the tail servo, one could use a 180 degree servo or modify the existing servo to tilt 180 degrees. Then redesign the tilt mechanism to allow near 180 degree tilt (zip ties would inhibit full 180 degree).

    Pros:

      Would allow true 180 degree tilt

    Cons:

      With increased tilt the lift of the tail motor would be dramatically decreased
      Would require redesigned tilt mechanism
      Would make the tilt mechanism more vulnerable

    Conclusion: It is a bad idea.

    If you do that on all three booms, you might end up with a craft capable of sustained inverted flight. (:

    Lol 😀 Great outside of the box thinking 🙂
