In trying to set up the rudder pull-pull cables, I've noticed that one
of the wires has a kink in it as it exists the fuselage. I've looked
into lengthening the exit hole or moving the servo, but that is not
going to help. Has anyone used a guide of some sort in order to
introduce a "bend" in the pull-pull cable system?
Thanks in advance,
Kevlar Pull Pull cable or nylon coated steel fishing trace work well sliding
through nylon tube which has been bent [while hot to retain bend without
stress] or light brass tube which has had ends rounded and flared to prevent
abrasions. For sharp turns, visit the Boating section of your LHS and get
some pulleys which are easily mounted in place similar to many full size
A very good pdf file on servo conversions and how to install gear in yachts
is found at http://www.amya.org/us1mpt4.pdf (warning - 16 pages but worthwhile)
for a good range of "blocks" check out Cap Marquettes http://www.sedial.com/cap/anglais/e_corps.htm and click on blocks = X 3
"weights" pages. picture appears as each item is clicked.
Graham Bantok (UK) also provides very good blocks. (pulleys)
see photos and explanations of Pull Pull systems at three good sites http://members.cox.net/bdfelice/Pull-pull/pull-pull.htm
