Default Single servo dual elevators

I've been flying since last December on a trainer and it's time to get one of the Warbirds I've been putting together off the ground. I bought the Nitro Models 60 size P-51, a Will hobby' s 120 size FW-190 and the Cermark F-16 propjet. The P51 is almost done. I put a ST90 in it and the motor runs great. My question is Im running a pushrod to each elevator because the elevator joiner didnt provide enough support for both elevators with a single pushrod. Whats the best way to run 2 elevator pushrods into a single servo? Having some trouble with this so any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi Shreder,

While there are a couple ways of accomplishing this, you should definitely check out the Dave Brown Fiberglass Pushrod system. It has fittings that allow a "Y" pushrod arrangement, which is perfect for single-servo, dual elevator set-ups. Just as it sounds, you'll have one wire on the servo end of the pushrod, and two wires coming out of the control surface side.

Go to the DB website, then "Order/View Products", and scroll down to the bottom of the page to find them. While not exactly cheap, they are well worth it. [sm=shades_smile.gif]

I'm sure others will chime in with other methods, but I found this to be the best system for what you're trying to accomplish.

Hope this helps!

Default RE: Single servo dual elevators

I have a plane that requires dual servos for the elevator. At the present I am using a a reveser with no help. One servo still travel more than the other. I am using a Futuba 6EX radio...Can anyone help.

Also, I am looking at getting the Frenzy 100, but I hesitate because of the dual elevator set-up. Is there a way around during the assembly that is proven?

Thanks
