I like the .070" stuff because you can sand one end down slightly and CA it into the little 2-56 threaded brass doohickeys and screw on a nylon mini-clevis.
DB --

How stiff is the .070" rod? Can you use it for a full length ( 12" to 14" ) pushrod without support in the middle? Could it be used as an aileron torque rod for barn door ailerons on the tip of an 18" wing panel?

ive never used it but i think this corbon stuff is flexable and i think you would need some support.

and as far as i know you couldnt bend them it would break.

i might be wrong though

I am building this same plane but will go electric. Iím finding for a first timer the plans are not
real clear. Can you add more building pics of this model? I think Iím on track but need to see more
to be sure. Youíve obviously have built models before. Thanks
