I have a Champ that I need to install pushrods on. I have a replacement set, but are there other options that will work on the UMX planes? I know there are connector options for the larger sizes. I was thinking either clamp style or the screw mount.
I have not found a good source for the thin carbon rods, but you can make your own little z bend hooks for the ends with some sewing pins. just get a nice sharp bend on both corners, and use some shrink wrap to fasten it, but shrink it a little at a time and keep moving the pin while shrinking so it doesn't become locked in place and is still adjustable.
This is a tricky one to set up, but using a push-pull system like they do on Yaks and other giant scale 3D planes could work. Just get a push pull servo head and some fishing twine, and you can barley see the twine from the outside. This could be an option if you want your model to look extremely scale.
