Push rod wire size

#1
What size wire does FT supply with the smaller planes say the Tiny Trainer? I have a lot of .032" stainless TIG welding wire, it is pretty stiff I think it would work well for my TT build, what do you think?

If it fits the holes in the servo arm and it is rigid enough by all means use it. I use paper clips for short pushrods and MIG wire for long myself.

have fun!

Thanks Hai-Lee, I thought about MIG wire. My smallest SS TIG wire is .045" not .032" but it fits the small control horn and is pretty stiff, I think it will work just fine.
