Default RE: Pull Pull Elevator - your thoughts

Like aerobob says, coated fishing leader line makes very good pull-pull cables. When you crimp 'em make sure you pass the wire through the crimp sleeve twice to eliminate the possibility of the cable somehow pulling free. For a cleaner install I slip a piece of heat shrink over the wire and after crimping the connection I shrink the heat shrink over the connection to make for a cleaner looking install.

Oh yeah, never use nylon clevises with those little eyelet rods (4-40 or 10-28) to attach your wires to control horns or servos. I learned that one the hard way.[:@]
