Default Radian umx push rods

I'm rebuilding the micro radian. I wrote something earlier but I think everyone was confused. The umx utilizes very thin piano wires that hook into the servers. These wires do not hook directly into the rudder and elevator control horns on the other end. They go into a kind of plastic sleeve. Then there is a piece of thicker wire that goes into the other end of the sleeve and that hooks into the control horn. It isnt a great system. Can someone tell me if they have come up with a better way of doing this or is there a stronger easier kind of control rod system out there?

Didn't get any replies? About all I can tell you is that the stock setup seems to work okay but the little wire can get loose inside of the piece of shrink wrap. So when you are sure it is adjusted properly put a drop of CA inside of the shrink wrap. Let us know how you are doing with it.
