FT Flyer build questions?


Junior Member

I know very little about rc planes, so sorry in advance for the simple questions.

I've never built a plane before and fancy giving the FT Flyer a go. I have some very simple questions (to begin with anyway)

1) what type of push rods should I use?
2) what type of Clevis should I use?
3) I have a Spektrum DX5e transmitter; will I be ok using any receiver that has the DSMX or DSM2 standard?

I'm planning on buying most parts from hobbyking so if they have something I should use then that would be great.

1.2mm or 1mm piano wire is good
2.usually for push rod you can make a z bend on one end of the wire(which connects to the control horn) and use a linkage stopper on the servo.

Good luck!!!
