Default whiplash pushrods

I would like to know what kind of pushrods your using for your whiplash. I was thinking of getting the CF pushrods from Art's hobby with the titanium ends. Are they thin enough to get around the fins.
Thanks

Default Hey George..

I grabbed a couple of those Sullivan steel control horns while at the (not so) local hobby shop...and they are both the same..do they make a right and left, or do you just move one over a bit??

Default Yes & No

Hey Chuck, In the 3/4" they only make the one. The big ones; (1 1/8" I think) they make left and right, but they are too big for our Lashes IMHO. I just positioned the one a little over like you said; works great!

Default Control rods

You don't have to spend that much money.

My local hobby shop had some carbon fiber rods for around two bucks. Dubro 4-40 threaded couplers JB welded into the ends work perfectly.

I used Air Wild 1" servo arms with Dubro ball links. This drops the control rods low enough so they clear the fins easily. Just to make sure I moved the servos out about 1/8".

If you order the sullivan horns you can order a pull pull set, you will then have a left & right. They are stainless & impossible to drill, I used a metal hole punch & opened the hole to 4-40, I then used a swivel ball link on both ends of the 4-40 pushrods.
