All three days, start to finish. Might even be called upon for burger duty. I'm hoping for radio impound instead.

I'm looking forward to it as well. The brightest minds and most talented pilots in RC will be all in one place next weekend, and I wouldn't miss it for anything.

Thwoppity friggin' THWOP, eh?

Loadthis asked:
Has anybody used turnbuckles in the control rods?
A much simpler idea that I have seen is to have control rods with a right hand thread on one end and left hand thread on the other. This way just turning the rod will change the overall length. I have no idea where to find these control rods.

Radio control cars use them all the time in the steering and suspension setups.

It shouldn't be too hard to find the correct lengths.

Ah yes, and I see that they are called "turnbuckles". Now the posts previous to mine make more sense. When I hear that term, I think of: THIS

I bought some Rocket City balls and screws and Rocket city links and they are a smooth perfit fit, they actually spin around on the ball and you don't have to take the time to size them.

One other advantage of the turnbuckle besides accurate sizing is you no longer have to keep popping the ends off to make adjustments.

I've only seen this setup one time and thought about trying them, but I could never find them. Now that I know where to get them, I might get a few links on my next Tower Hobbies order.

You can find the turnbuckles at www.lunsfordracing.com They come in 3mm, 3.5mm, 4mm, and 5mm thread sizes. I think they might be a little thick for the application you want them for.

Are you on the list?
