Default Long Arms?

Does anybody have these? They are what came with my hardware kit, but they look twice as long as the ones in the WH General Assembly Manual. They really seem to restrict travel as they hit the fuselage. I have the same problem with my elevators and ailerons. Please excuse the ghetto rudder tiller. I wanted to save a few $ and made one from scrap.

Yes these are to long. You just need to mark them to match up with you control geometry then cut and droll them. I know I did this on my 28% extra but don't remeber if I need to on the hardware kit that came with my 35% Sukhio.

Well actually I think you should CUT AND DRILL them -- and I should take typing lessons.

You drill them so the connecting piece will be overtop of the hinge line. Then take a dremel and cut / sand the extra off and round it.

Read the instructions again. I believe they mention cutting the tab and drilling the clevis pin hole to be in line with the rudder hinge line. A picture is worth a thousand words, yes, but sometimes you have to read a couple of words to receive the full benefit of the picture.

Ahhh yes, I see it now. I get the De De De award for that one. I've done way too much blurry-eyed building after midnight and that's when the goof ups seem to happen.

I just got a bigger screw for my rudder and put the arm on that.

I thought about doing that but, with no "A" nut, does the screw flex under load?

Not on that size plane.

I have the exact arms on my WH 28% Edge 540T V2. I simply cut them down and re-drilled them. They work fine.
