    RE: 40% 330l pull pull

    Chris,

    I actually use 90 lb leader wire for pull pull available at any good fishing dept store. you should also be able to get the feurls need to lock them also. You probably want to use about a 4 inch arm on the servo. I actually cross the leads and make an exit between the two servo ( rudder)bays in the rear of the fuselage. You will have pleanty of torque with the Seiko but the centering on return can be a little issue if you fly percision.

    Chris,

    What you want to do is feed your pull wire through you ferrel then through you linkage ( we use a 4-40 ball link with an sullivan 4-40 eylet attached to the control horn) back through the ferrel.

    Ok you want to make sure you have some extra wire because now you want to loop back over the ferrel and push the wire through the ferrel again from the linkage side all before you crimp. What that will do is lock the pull wire in so it can not slip.

    To crimp it I would go to lowes or a fishing supply house and get an inexpensive crimping tool. Then you will be set forever!!

    good Luck

    Another trick if you use coated wire is after you are done running it through the eyelets, go back with a lighter and gently melt the coating together. I've done this on my pattern stuff for years and the stuff never moves.
