Default RE: Not wanting bellcrank

Hello Charles,
It is important to make the plane hang level, or in other words to get the leadouts lined up with the vertical CG position.
Small leadouts will interfere with the 3-line bellcrank working properly.

Instead let me suggest that you make a roughly 1/2" tall by 4' long section of the fuselage side removable for flight. Possibly you could make it a door.
If, like many scale builders, you make the leadout guide as a removable wire clip that plugs into the wing, then you can remove the clip from the wing, coil the leadouts and stow them all just above or below the bellcrank and then replace the panel for static judging.

best regards,
Dean Pappas
