Evo Construction - Pushrod Fitting

FITTING THE PUSHRODS
Pushrod materials

The material you choose for your pushrods should be a thin, lightweight and rigid material. Suitable materials are bamboo, hardwood dowel or 2mm carbon rod.
We find the 2mm carbon rod is superior in use as most connection hardware such as clevises and threaded adjusters will fit directly onto the end of the 2mm rod. The carbon also offers very high stiffness and is very durable. Our Mugi Evo kits include carbon pushrods and we also stock full pushrod sets (including clevises and adjustable ball joints and horns).

Fitting the pushrods

Lift the two wing halves to near vertical position above the building board. You can now thread the pushrods through the exit slots from the outside of the wing and clip the clevis at the servo end into place on the servo horn.

The servo horns will twist slightly as you do this, and the pushrods will bend to accommodate the angles but they should not break. Now use a couple of books, or a helper to hold the wings in this position while you get a one metre ruler ready to clamp down the trailing edge of the wing.
