    Anybody replace the plywood control horns on their 50" electrics to carbon fiber? If so, where did you get them? Matt

    RE: carbon fiber control horns

    Why not use the nylon horns sold in every hobby shop?

    RE: carbon fiber control horns

    Because I need some that will glue into the slots in my control surface. I don't think the nylon would take the thick ca very well.

    RE: carbon fiber control horns

    Carbon fiber does not always take glue so well. And there are not tremendous loads placed on the control horns of a plane that size. If you want more strength just use a thicker plywood horn. You can trace the outline of the stock horns onto new wood and either add another layer to the stock horn or cut new ones from thicker plywood.
