RE: Nitro models pusher Bobcat?
I've been flying 605BB's on my Sukhoi. They are original, (I bought the plane used) and I guess they are 4-5 years old.
When I ground looped it last Fall while taxiing back to the pits,(big 'ol gust of crosswind), it popped the rudder and cracked the firewall.
Anyway, I got all the repairs completed over the winter and have been reconnecting the airborne pack. Guess what? The ground maneouvers last Fall stripped the output gear's teeth real good on the rudder servo,(I use pull-pull wires on an elongated Dubro output arm). I have 605's on the elevator halves, too.
I ordered replacement gears BUT they are metal. Now my HS-605BB will be an HS-605BBMG, :-). I may just replace the other 2 servo gear trains as well. They are spline gears and appear to be very hardy. I'm quite suprised to read here that folks have so much trouble with them.
As to the length of pushrod to the elevator. Yeah, well when ya put a ruler to it, the length isn't all that bad at that. I use Central Hobbies CF rods and their titanium ends. You are 100% correct that the $$ are in the ends. However, I happen to have several 2-56 and 4-40 ends and some scrap tubing laying around so I guess my original post is moot.
That's what I love about RC Universe. Where I usually fear to tread, others have trailblazed, LOL...
Oh...can anyone enlighten me on converting a new set of trike Rom Airs over to pressurized air? Freon 12 is well, extinct. I have questions if you have answers, :-)
