Default Pull-Pull Controls....How?

I've heard great things about the pull-pull system for controlling the surfaces. How do you do this(ie; what gauge cable, how to attach to the surfaces/servos...etc..)? Pics would be nice.

Thanks,
Chris

Chris:

You simply use a control horn or rod on top and bottom of the
elevator and each side of the rudder. The standard metal clevis
is used at the end of a threaded connecting rod from the wire.
Your hobby shop will have a pull-pull package by DuBro with detail
instructions for installation. I use 30 lb. plastic coated fishing steel leader then buy the thrd. rod and clevises separately.

Default Cable

Randy,
Where do you get that 30# fishing cable? I have looked all over the west coast for it. The manufactor says the Wall Mart and the K Mart have it but the ones I have been in don't.
BTW if you are quoting Husker Power what are you doing living in Kansas?
