Default Byron AT-6 Build /Rebuild

topic changed to build. story is i bought this from a third party . the original builder passed away from cancer and i picked it up " like i said" third hand so i'm redoing somethings that were done and continuing on with the build .

what you looking at is a rough in install . nothing has been glassed in or finished. .. we all know that two objects can not occupy the same space . that being said i wish i had an answer to why byron would engineer such an obvious flaw. i'm referring to the elevator push rod setup. both are identical
in setup so it's only a matter of time that the two rods would intersect each other at some point. i modified the original design to help clean up the push rod mess they had. i opted to move the servos back some to offer a better hook up location rather than run the whole mess down the whole fuse.
included in the picks is a crude pic of how byron wanted it built. kind of primitive by todays standards . i was able to offset the elevator linkage at the servo arms but the rods still touch each other. any ideas on how i can keep these two rods from vibrating against each other? i thought about using heat shrink tubing to cushion the vibration and reduce the rattling noise. anyone else ever build one of these? thanks ,WB_1 http://www.ironbaymodelcompany.com/i...umentation.htm this will take to to the .PDF file for a better look the setup.
