The horns screw on with self tapping screws, there is a half moon plywood plate in all surfaces. The small looking PK screws are used to screw them on and are more than adequate proved by hundreds of flights. If you iron the film before installing you can see the ply outline

Thanks for the update Dave. I see the half moon plate and that what I screwed into. I just assumed that half moon plate would be solid or that the control horns would be through bolted.
thanks,
Tone

The inspectors here wont sign off on the jet here if I only screw them on from one side, that is for sure, even if I tell them it works fine everywhere else :-)

I also bought mine from Lindinger, and a friend also, and we are both missing our 3 mm control clevises. Are they included in your kit ?

Got my Jet-A1 main retracts today from https://www.jautsch.de/ , so Now I can begin the install.
Im using the original ripmax nosegear. They will be installed in original CYS R2090 retract units :-)

They are 2mm too wide , so I had to dremel out the bays width. The nose gear also has a centering pin, that I had to make room for.
I have removed the original steering system, and have ordered a normal metal horn with 6mm hole in it to fin on the nose leg connecting pin.

I am worried about the same thing. I thought the hardwood half moon block would at least be solid. I may make and add a backplate and through bolt mine anyway.

My kit did not come with the 3mm clevis either. I contacted Lindinger and they sent me some threaded 3mm rod and ball links.
thanks,
Tone

With the right tools on hand its easy
