    You're talking about when it was RCOnline. When it became RCUniverse, the pop-ups began, along with all sorts of slow-downs and other issues. DGrant, you are absolutely correct; back then, it was a...

    The .040" c/f rods work smoothly enough, but I'm a bit concerned that they are stiff enough to overcome flight loads on the ruddervators. The "up" movement is a pulling motion, so no worries there....

    Re the wing servo covers… my ball-link mod to the aileron linkage is going to cause an issue there; I'll deal with it when I get to that point. Sounds like you're relying on 1/16 balsa sheeting to...

    New aileron linkages done; the two small swashplate control rods and ball links from an ancient Kyosho Concept 30 helicopter were a perfect fit.
