pull-pull cable w/tiny bb crimped on end
 
Anybody know the company that makes it? The cable is a blue nylon coated wire with the bb crimped on already.

Huh, does that end remain stationary and not need the usual tubing crimp? Is it so much better, or?

Thanks,

Ernie

That ball is only on one end and I don't think there is a way other than cutting it off. It looks like it is welded some way, You loop and crimp the other end or run it through the threaded sleave they furnished.

How would a guitar string work?

Rather than guitar string I have used a metal lider set that you can buy in the fishing section at Wally world. I bought one with 15 or so yards of teflon coated metal wire that I believe was 50lb test. The kit also comes with the crimper tool and the pieces that you crimp down (not sure what they are called). I think it was 8 or 9 bucks. Then you just buy the threaded pushrod ends that are for soldering onto pushrods. I drill a fine hole in them and run the leader wire through it. So far I have made 3 pull pulls for a 90 sized plane out of this one kit and I still have plenty left for several more and all for around 10 dollars!

Hey guys,
Just got off the phone with Mrs. Morgan who's husband used to own International RC Specialties. Unfortuanatley he passed away, and she is not running the business, but she is trying to get rid of the inventory. RC Outlaw, in the above reply, has the address and phone# correct.[8D]

Hi!
I use thinnest possible fishing wire (20lbs) in most of my airplanes.

Does anybody really go through the hole, and then through the crimp tube TWICE before crimping? That TWICE business seems like a real pain unless fishing for 200 lb. halibut. On the last pull pull go around, I went through the hole, through the crimp tube once, then bent the wire back and put a drop of CA inside the crimp tube before crimping it. That should last several lifetimes it seems like.

The termination issue for pull-pull stuff gives me a pain; there's really nothing out there (nothing I know of) that is an elegant termination. Yeah, the crimping method works- but it's ugly and- IMO- pretty crude- at least for something going on an airplane. Sullivan sells some threaded adaptors (2-56, not sure if they have them in 4-40) with a hole through the center. The last pull-pull I did consisted of these with the thin, vinyl coated stainless cable. Ran it through the adaptors with excess and crimped it (the adaptors are brass) then, after stripping the vinyl coating off the excess cable, tied a knot in the cable followed with a bit of CA to keep the knot together. It's overkill, I know, but redundancy is always a good thing when dealing with control surfaces (yeah, that thin stainless cable was pretty tricky to tie in a knot- but I "bent it to my will" and tied the knot)

Ernie, you flying with the Mt. Rainier club?

Hey Sam, I don't belong to a club. I have been flying at Flaming Gyser State Park between Auburn and Black Diamond. They have a great field there! How about you?

Hi Ernie,

Sure, I know F/G; some of my buddies fly there. I'm North of Seattle so don't venture that far south but should sometime just to check out the field. Currently, I'm flying with the B-Hawks but we're waiting for our new field to be seeded (got ousted at the end of last year) so I haven't done any flying in a few months. Great weather we're having, eh?

Hi!
Allways through the crimp tube three times!!
With thinnest possible fishing wire it's no problem.
