    Installing rudder cable

    Don,

    I am getting ready to install rudder cable on my Astral XX. please advise me whether I should cross the rudder cables inside the fuselage. What would be the benefit for either crossing, or not crossing them? Which configuration will be more linear, and why?

    Also, what type of servo arm should I use? There are three types I am considering. Obviously, the length between the arm and the horn will be the same:-

    1. Metal round rudder servo wheel by Hangar 9

    2. Long plastic straight servo arm by Du-Bro

    3. Large plastic servo wheel that came with the Futaba servo, which I am going to cut it into a V-shape just like the Japanese pilots does.

    Thanks in advance for your advice.

    Adrian

    RE: Installing rudder cable

    I set my rudder up without crossing them. I just use a standard or slightly larger servo arm. In the back, get the control horn set up so the clevis attaches to the connector at the hinge line. You want to make the geometry the same from the servo and at the rudder horn.

    Hope this helps,
    Don
