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.

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?
